plottools[parallelepiped] - generate 3-D plot object for a parallelepiped

Calling Sequence

parallelepiped(u, v, w, p, options)


u, v, w


three 3-D vectors (in list form)



(optional) origin of the parallelepiped, default is [0,0,0]



(optional) equations of the form option=value. For a complete list, see plot3d/options.



The parallelepiped command creates a three-dimensional plot data object, which when displayed is a parallelepiped positioned at p, having edges given by the vectors u, v, and w.


The plot data object produced by the parallelpiped command can be used in a PLOT3D data structure, or displayed using the plots[display] command.


Remaining arguments are interpreted as options, which are specified as equations of the form option = value. For more information, see plottools and plot3d/options.
