Twisted Triangular Prism

A twisted triangular prism is obtained from its right analog by rotating one of the bases relative to the other one. This is no longer a polyhedron, as the side faces are not rectangular, not even parallelgrams, but curved.

The numbers of vertices, edges and faces remain the same so, naturally, Euler's formula checks out: 6 - 9 + 5 = 2, for the triangualr prism

What if applet does not run?

Drag the mouse to rotate the prism. Use the right button to remove and put back individual faces.

(Acknowledgement: I have learned most of Java details from the implementation by Meiko Rachimow.)
