A Three-Dimensional Space is an multi-dimensional space with three dimensions.

**AKA:**3-Dimensional Space, 3D Space.**Context:**- It can range from being an Origined 3-D Space to being a Relative 3-D Space.
- It can contain 3D Shapes, such as a sphere.
- …

**Three-dimensional space**is a geometric three-parameter model of the physical universe (without considering time) in which all known matter exists. These three dimensions can be labeled by a combination of three chosen from the terms*length*,*width*,*height*,*depth*, and*breadth*. Any three directions can be chosen, provided that they do not all lie in the same plane.In physics and mathematics, a sequence of

*n*numbers can be understood as a location in n-dimensional space. When*n*= 3, the set of all such locations is called*three-dimensional Euclidean space. It is commonly represented by the symbol [math]\displaystyle{ \scriptstyle{\mathbb{R}}^3 }[/math]. This space is only one example of a great variety of spaces in three dimensions called 3-manifolds.*
