For ParametricPlot3D:

ParametricPlot3D[{x,y,x^2+y^2, EdgeForm[]}, {x,0,1},{y,0,1}];

For ListSurfacePlot3D:


apts = Table[{Cos[t] Cos[u], Sin[t] Cos[u],
  Sin[u]}, {t, 0, Pi, Pi/5},
  {u, 0, Pi/2, Pi/10}];



The latter works for any Graphics3D object (except that we have to use


if the polygons are not in a list)
