There are at least three methods.

Firstly, you can use functions in DiscreteMath`ComputationalGeometry`.  In V4,
it comes with the online help.  For V2.2,  Shaw & Tigg's book runs through the
gory details.

The second method is to use functions in Wickham-Jones' ExtendGraphics`
package.  This is on MathSource.

If neither of these appeals, try ListSurfacePlot3D.  This one lives in
Graphics`Graphics3D.

Regards,

Dave.
