So if I understand you correctly, the shape you want is exactly the
volume for which R, G and B are all within the range from 0 to 1.

That sounds like a job for an isosurface to me.

Variant A: Create six isosurfaces, each representing one of the
boundaries (R<0, G<0, B<0, R>1, G>1, B>1), and intersect them.

Variant B: Refactor the functions from variant A, so that they have the
same threshold, combine them using max() or min() to achieve the
intersection effect, and turn that into a single isosurface.
