# Parametric surface in 3D

I want to create a mesh for a 3D surface with coordinates defined by a parametric function. Is it possible to define this mesh using Gmsh? If it is not possible, what free software do you recommend me?

Keep in mind that you could create the coordinates of your mesh using a map from a rectangular grid (in parametric coordinates) to $$\mathbb{R}^3$$. For example, you could compute the coordinates using Python and then export the mesh using Meshio. The original map can be a regular rectangle.
