Triangular Prism

Wider Scope: List of Polyhedra by Type

Prism polyhedra are formed by stretching a polygon into three-dimensional space, or connecting two polygons with rectangles, or getting the Cartesian product of a polygon and a line segment (all three methods are identical). As there are an infinite number of uniform polygons, there are also an infinite number of prisms. Some significant prisms are, along with their Schläfli symbols:
