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

Parameters

u, v, w

-

three 3-D vectors (in list form)

p

-

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

options

-

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

Description

• 

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.
