Help with plotting in Mathematica

  1. Dec 6, 2006 #1
    I could use some help with plotting.
    I need to plot the intersection of three cylinders:

    it's really hard to visualize how this shape looks like, and I need to plot it.
    I was told that I should use Mathematica, but I'm not too familiar with all the options there...

    I will be more specific: I need to plot the faces of the set:
    { (x,y,z): x^2+y^2<=1 and z^2+x^2<=1 and y^2+z^2<=1 }

    can anyone help me?
