There is no command or graphics primitives for plotting "solid" 3-D
objects, only for plotting surfaces. So what you need to do is plot the

boundary surfaces of your object. As I understand it, they would be
the following six surfaces:

(x1(0,t2,t3), x2(0,t2,t3), x3(0,t2,t3));

0<t2<t2max, 0<t3<t3max
(x1(t1max,t2,t3), x2(t1max,t2,t3), x3(t1max,t2,t3));

0<t2<t2max, 0<t3<t3max
(x1(t1,0,t3), x2(t1,0,t3), x3(t1,0,t3));
0<t1<t1max, 0<t3<t3max
(x1(t1,t2max,t3), x2(t1,t2max,t3), x3(t1,t2max,t3));
0<t1<t1max, 0<t3<t3max
(x1(t1,t2,0), x2(t1,t2,0), x3(t1,t2,0));
0<t1<t1max, 0<t2<t2max
(x1(t1,t2, t3max), x2(t1,t2, t3max), x3(t1,t2, t3max));
0<t1<t1max, 0<t2<t2max

Each of these surfaces can be plotted using

ParametricPlot3D. Actually, you can plot them all in a single

ParametricPlot3D command, but I suggest you try them one at a time
first to make sure things are working out.
