Only theoretically. A "point" takes up some space, but obviously they are used on the assumption that a "point" takes up no space at all. This assumption makes it difficult for them to realistically exist.

A plane is the two-dimensional analogue of a point (zero dimensions), a line (one dimension) and three-dimensional space.

### What is three dimensional things?

Three-dimensional things are objects that have height, width, and depth. They exist in physical space and have the ability to be viewed from multiple angles. Examples include a cube, sphere, and pyramid.

### How would the point where a ray intersects a three dimensional triangular plane be determined?

Presumably, the "three dimensional triangular plane" is actually a two dimensional plane which is "tilted" with respect to the axes. The point of intersection is simply the coordinates of the solution to the simultaneous equations for the line and the plane.
