# [name]

A geometric triangle as defined by three [page:Vector3 Vector3s] representing its three corners.

## Constructor

### [name]( [param:Vector3 a], [param:Vector3 b], [param:Vector3 c] )

[page:Vector3 a] - the first corner of the triangle. Default is a [page:Vector3] at (0, 0, 0).
[page:Vector3 b] - the second corner of the triangle. Default is a [page:Vector3] at (0, 0, 0).
[page:Vector3 c] - the final corner of the triangle. Default is a [page:Vector3] at (0, 0, 0).

Creates a new [name].

## Properties

### [property:Vector3 a]

The first corner of the triangle. Default is a [page:Vector3] at (0, 0, 0).

### [property:Vector3 b]

The second corner of the triangle. Default is a [page:Vector3] at (0, 0, 0).

### [property:Vector3 c]

the final corner of the triangle. Default is a [page:Vector3] at (0, 0, 0)

## Methods

### [method:Triangle clone]()
