I try a lot of things but didn't work, please help me.

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/33571/how-to-plot-a-3d-triangle-prism-using-parametric_plot3d/?answer=33572#post-id-33572Here is one approach. This does not plot the ends.
var('s t')
p0start=vector([1,0,0])
p1start=vector([-1/2,0,sqrt(3)/2])
p2start=vector([-1/2,0,-sqrt(3)/2])
p0end=vector([1,1,0])
p1end=vector([-1/2,1,sqrt(3)/2])
p2end=vector([-1/2,1,-sqrt(3)/2])
side1=(1-s)*((1-t)*p0start+t*p1start)+s*((1-t)*p0end+t*p1end)
side2=(1-s)*((1-t)*p1start+t*p2start)+s*((1-t)*p1end+t*p2end)
side3=(1-s)*((1-t)*p2start+t*p0start)+s*((1-t)*p2end+t*p0end)
parametric_plot3d(side1,(t,0,1),(s,0,1))+parametric_plot3d(side2,(t,0,1),(s,0,1))+parametric_plot3d(side3,(t,0,1),(s,0,1)) Sat, 28 May 2016 15:53:48 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/33571/how-to-plot-a-3d-triangle-prism-using-parametric_plot3d/?answer=33572#post-id-33572
