Following this guide to Sage: and using Sage Online produced the following graphs:

It would be nice to see it in 3D instead of merely color coded. The y-axis is coming out of the picture toward us and instead of seeing the 3D surface (in x,y,i coordinates) we see a color-graph on the x-i plane.

You can do what I wish using Maple:

One approach would be to use plot3d. For example,

plot3d(lambda x,y: norm(1/(((x+i*y)-3)*((x+y*i)+2))),(x,-4,4),(y,-4,4))

I've not been able to get the coloring that you'd probably like, but this does give the 3d plot rather than the 2d plot you were getting.
