three-dimensional (3-D)
A t
1. A structural property of a noun that contains or within  which we can imagine at
least one vertex.  (adverb): the qualitative, structural  property of simultaneously
facing perpendicular or pointing parallel to three  mutually-orthogonal straight lines.
A plane faces and a dimension points. In Physics, the names of the three dimensions
are length, width, and height, with the convention that height is typically aligned
parallel with the direction of gravity of the celestial body used as reference and
width, with the observer's horizon. A dimension has no magnitude associated with it.
2. Three-dimensional (adj.): A word used to qualify an object that contains a vertex or
corner.
