Nasser Abbasi,

I think it happens because the values of 1 will only be returned for
independant variable values of y=0 or x=0. Plot3D does not take
infinitecimal (sp?) steps, so it misses your lines.

You are really trying to plot something that is almost infinitely small
(look up the definition of Equal in mathematica - there is a bit of
tolerance in there) and trying to see it in a plot of a surface that is
very flat.

Maybe you should just draw polygons for the boundary conditions?

Your axes labels are probably in the wrong order.

Show[Graphics3D/@{Block[{$DisplayFunction=Identity},
        Plot3D[0,{x,-1,2},{y,-1,2},FaceGrids\[Rule]None,
          AxesLabel\[Rule]{"x","y","U(x,y)"},
          PlotLabel\[Rule]
            "Boundary
Conditions"]],{Polygon[{{0,-1,0},{0,2,3},{0,2,0}}],
        Polygon[{{-1,0,0},{-1,0,1},{2,0,1},{2,0,0}}]}}]

Cheers,
