Ideally I would like to plot a region in 3D space which is defined by a bunch of inequalities. For example let us consider the region $R$ defined by $$ { (x,y, z): x \le 0 \text{ and } y \le 0 \text{ and } x+y \le z } $$.

I am wondering what would be an easier way to do it.

With my limited knowledge I came up with these two approaches.

Approach 1 : Generate points in this region and plot them in 3D. Is there a way to extend the function in region_plot () that generates plot points for my needs?

Approach 2 : Concatenate implicit -3D plots of functions of the form $ x + y - (z+t) $, where $t$ is a small positive parameter, for different values of $t$. Then plot all these simultaneously.

I would appreciate any alternate way to do this or any improvements on these approaches.
Thank you for your time in advance.

I'm not aware of an easy way to do this. But, here is one idea:

var('x y z')
p+=polygon3d([(-4,0,-4),(0,0,0),(-4,0,0) ])
p+=polygon3d([(0,-4,-4),(0,0,0),(0,-4,0) ])
p+=polygon3d([(-4,0,-4),(-4,-4,-8),(-4,0,0),(-4,-4,0) ])
p+=polygon3d([(0,-4,-4),(-4,-4,-8),(0,-4,0) ,(-4,-4,0) ])
