# Hexahedron

Hexahedron[{p1,p2,,p8}]
represents a filled hexahedron with corners p1, p2, , p8.

Hexahedron[{{p1,1,p1,2,,p1,8},{p2,1,},}]
represents a collection of hexahedra.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• Hexahedron can be used as a geometric region and a graphics primitive.
• is equivalent to Hexahedron[{{0,0,0},{0,1,0},{1,1,0},{1,0,0},{0,0,1},{0,1,1},{1,1,1},{1,0,1}}].
• Hexahedron represents a filled polyhedron given by the polygon faces {p4,p3,p2,p1}, {p1,p2,p6,p5}, {p2,p3,p7,p6}, {p3,p4,p8,p7}, {p4,p1,p5,p8}, and {p5,p6,p7,p8}.
• Hexahedron can be used in Graphics3D.
• In graphics, the points pi can be Scaled and Dynamic expressions.
• Graphics rendering is affected by directives such as FaceForm, EdgeForm, Opacity, Texture, and color.
• The following options and settings can be used in graphics:
•  VertexColors Automatic vertex colors to be interpolated VertexNormals Automatic effective vertex normals for shading VertexTextureCoordinates None coordinates for textures
