Calling Sequence

prism(P, options)

prism(P, base=b, height=h, displacement=d, options)

Parameters

P

-

plot POLYGONS data structure

b

-

(optional) z-coordinate of the base of the prism; defaults to 0.

h

-

(optional) height of the prism; defaults to 1.

d

-

(optional) two entry list specifying the [x,y] displacement of the top of the prism from the base; defaults to [0,0].

options

-

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

Description

• 

The prism command takes a two-dimensional polygon plot structure and creates a three-dimensional regular prism of the height specified.

• 

The option displacement=d can be used to create an oblique prism.

• 

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