    Hi

    I have been googling the word "parallelnoid". I think no such word exist. Whatever the word is it means a box (such as cube) made of parallelogram (perhaps, it's a rectangle). Do you know any such term? Please let me know. Thank you.

    There is a word in Greek for it, which means parallel sides, but I don't know the English one.

    I think you are looking for the word parallelepiped?
