Re: How do you draw Triangles and other Geometric figures in Mathematica?



The function "Polygon" provided in Chapter 9 of Mathematica Graphics by
Tom Wickham-Jones provides a method for drawing such geometrical
shapes.

e.g.
Show[Graphics3D[Polygon[{list of x,y,z coordinates}]]] will draw what
you are looking for.

Look for the "Polygon" function on MathSource.

Better yet, if you're doing graphics, buy the aforementioned book!!

Good Luck,
John C. Erb
