Even looking at, say, `simplicial_complexes.Torus()`, it doesn't seem like there's a plot or show method. The docs<sup>1</sup> don't seem to have any information either.
Since the things I'm trying to draw are fairly simple, I would be wiling to plot the $1$-skeleton (which sage can do) and then fill in the $2$-cells myself, but I'm not even sure how to go about doing that. Obviously if there is a pre-existing method or library for this, that would be the best possible solution.
Thanks in advance!
