Hi,

Let me recycle an idea previously posted. It seems to work fine.

myplot=TriangularSurfacePlot[pts,BoxRatios->{1,1,1}]

Do you know about the Options command? For example,

In[6]:=
Options[TriangularSurfacePlot]
Out[6]=
{AmbientLight -> GrayLevel[0], AspectRatio -> Automatic, 
  Axes -> False, AxesEdge -> Automatic, AxesLabel -> None, 
  AxesStyle -> Automatic, Background -> Automatic, 
  Boxed -> True, BoxRatios -> Automatic, 
  BoxStyle -> Automatic, ColorOutput -> Automatic, 
  DefaultColor -> Automatic, Epilog -> {}, 
  FaceGrids -> None, ImageSize -> Automatic, 
  Lighting -> True, LightSources -> 
   {{{1., 0., 1.}, RGBColor[1, 0, 0]}, 
    {{1., 1., 1.}, RGBColor[0, 1, 0]}, 
    {{0., 1., 1.}, RGBColor[0, 0, 1]}}, 
  Plot3Matrix -> Automatic, PlotLabel -> None, 
  PlotRange -> Automatic, PlotRegion -> Automatic, 
  PolygonIntersections -> True, Prolog -> {}, 
  RenderAll -> True, Shading -> True, 
  SphericalRegion -> False, Ticks -> Automatic, 
  ViewCenter -> Automatic, 
  ViewPoint -> {1.3, -2.399999999999999, 2.}, 
  ViewVertical -> {0., 0., 1.}, 
  DefaultFont :> $DefaultFont, 
  DisplayFunction :> $DisplayFunction, 
  FormatType :> $FormatType, TextStyle :> $TextStyle}

This can help jog your memory. You can see that BoxRatios is set to Automatic by default. You can check the usage of BoxRatios in the Help's Master Index. Not all options for added packages are in there, unfortunately.

Hope this helps.
