The tutorial has an isosurface technique that I am not enamored with,
but you might want to try it anyway:


https://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Tutorial_Section_3.2#Combining_isosurface_functions

I published an alternative isosurface function RE_fn_Blob2() in
RoundEdge.  See the user manual for how to use it:

I once came up with a couple of trig-based formulas, but I haven't
looked at them in almost 20 years.  If I find that they eliminate 1st
derivative discontinuities, I might resurrect them.
