If you could post an example, it might help.

For instance, in

ParametricPlot3D[{s^3 + t, (1 - s) t, s + t^2}, {s, -1, 1}, {t, -1, 1},
MaxRecursion -> 0]

the resulting graphics can be described as follows. The surface is divided by lines where the parameters s, t are constant. These lines correspond to equally spaced values of s, t. (In fact the interval is divided into sixteen equal subintervals.) The lines intersect to form a coordinate grid on the surface. Each quadrilateral of the grid consists of two triangles. (ParametricPlot3D, as far as I know, always breaks surfaces into triangles.)

The option MaxRecursion -> 0 prevents further subdivision of the triangles.

You can set Mesh -> None to get rid of the mesh lines, which might be helpful in your case. You can set Mesh -> All to see all the polygons.

I don't know if any of that will help. If you get no other responses, you might try rephrasing the question.
