Visualising Solid Shapes

A three dimensional objects can look differently from different positions so they can be drawn from different perspectives. This is called visualising a solid shapes.

Two-dimensional shapes

Plane figures with only two measurements –length and width are called 2-D shapes.

Three-dimensional shapes

Solid figures with three measurements –length, width and height are called 3D shapes.

Views of 3D-Shapes

As the 3-D shapes are solid in nature so they may have a different view from different sides.

When we draw the top view, front view and side view on paper then it will look like this.

Example

Draw the front view, side view and the top view of the given figure.
