FaceForm

FaceForm[g]
is a graphics directive which specifies that faces of polygons and other filled graphics objects are to be drawn using the graphics directive or list of directives g.
FaceForm
specifies that the front faces of three-dimensional polygons should be drawn with directives g, and the backs with directives gback.
  • Color, opacity, and surface color directives can be used in FaceForm.
  • In three dimensions, specifications given outside of FaceForm apply to both front and back faces of polygons.
  • The front face of a polygon is defined to be the one for which the corners as you specify them are in counterclockwise order (right-hand rule).
Specify the style of edges and faces:
Specify different properties for the front and back of faces:

Use FaceForm to specify styling for polygons generated by plot functions:
Color the inside and outside differently:
FaceForm is used to specify that the front faces should not be drawn:
You can use a different style for front and back faces, including None and Opacity:
