based on an earlier version of the Wolfram Language.
 Graphics3D Graphics3D[ primitives , options ] represents a three-dimensional graphical image. Graphics3D is displayed using Show. The following graphics primitives can be used: The sound primitives SampledSoundList and SampledSoundFunction can also be included. The following graphics directives can be used: The following options can be given: Nested lists of graphics primitives can be given. Specifications such as GrayLevel remain in effect only until the end of the list which contains them. The standard print form for Graphics3D[ ... ] is -Graphics3D-. InputForm prints the explicit list of primitives. The default light sources used are 1,0,1 , RGBColor[1,0,0] , 1,1,1 , RGBColor[0,1,0] , 0,1,1 , RGBColor[0,0,1] . Graphics3D[SurfaceGraphics[ ... ]] can be used to convert a SurfaceGraphics object into Graphics3D representation. Graphics[SurfaceGraphics[ ... ]] generates a representation in terms of ordinary 2D graphics primitives. See the Mathematica book: Section 2.9.1. See also: Plot3D, SurfaceGraphics, ParametricPlot3D. Related packages: Graphics`Graphics3D`, Graphics`Shapes`, Graphics`Polyhedra`. Further Examples Beside using functions like Plot3D, you create three-dimensional graphics with graphics primitives. The command draws a random quadrilateral. Evaluate the cell to see the graphic. In[1]:=
