comment How to draw interlocking tori with Tikz?
Draw a smooth surface is another relevant post. No Tikz solution, but more than Gnuplot.

comment Is there a simple way to get started, and learn as I go? I can't afford up-front time investment
The online sites (ShareLaTeX and Overleaf) avoid installation problems so you can start immediately. Equations are made easier with WebEquation--just write what you want and see the latex code (copy/paste between $ signs to get the formula).

comment How to pass a function defined in sagetex to pgfplots
@percusse 3 comments above I mentioned 4 examples that I posted on this site. The method looks different than the link you posted but the idea of getting the data and plotting is essentially the same.

@percusse You don't need Sage to test. Just open a free Sagemath Cloud account to get access to Sage, LaTeX, and a lot more. Extremely powerful--think you'd find it useful!
