Basic Projection

The placement of the Front, Top, and Right-Side views relative to each other is essential to properly obtain the orthographic views. This is because vertical and horizontal lines will be used later to project information from one view to another.

Basic Projection

To obtain the front view of an object, turn the object (either physically or mentally) so that the front of the object is all you see. That will be the front view.

The top and right-side views can be obtained in a similar fashion.

In the VRML console below, you can switch between the various views by clicking on the "views" arrows (bottom center) on the console.
