The Triangular Prism
The triangular prism is a simple 3D uniform polyhedron bounded by 2 triangular faces and 3 squares. It has 9 edges and 6 vertices. It may be considered to be the extrusion of the triangle.
Projections
In order to be able to identify the triangular prism in various projections of 4D objects, it is useful to know how it appears from various viewpoints. The following are some of the commonlyencountered views:
Projection  Envelope  Description 

Triangle  Parallel projection centered on a triangular face. 

Square  Parallel projection centered on a vertical edge. 

Rectangle  Parallel projection parallel to a square face. The left edge of the projection is the image of a square face. 

Nonuniform pentagon  Vertexcentered parallel projection. 
Coordinates
The Cartesian coordinates of the triangular prism, centered on the origin and having edge length 2, are:
 (−1, −1/√3, ±1)
 (1, −1/√3, ±1)
 (0, 2/√3, ±1)
