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:
|What if applet does not run?|
Drag the mouse to rotate the prism. Use the right button to remove and put back individual faces.
