View From the Front

The view from the front of an object is defined as the view that is obtained as projection on the vertical plane by looking at the object normal to its front surface. It is the usual practice to position the object such that its view from the front reveals most of the important features. “Principle of Obtaining the View from the Front” figure shows the method of obtaining the view from the front of an object.

View From Above

The view from above of an object is defined as the view that is obtained as projection on the horizontal plane, by looking the object normal to its top surface. “Principle of Obtaining the View from Above” figure shows the method of obtaining the view from above of an object.

View From the Side

The view from the side of an object is defined as the view that is obtained as projection on the profile plane by looking the object, normal to its side surface. As there are two sides for an object, viz., left side and right side, two possible views from the side, viz., view from the left and view from the right may be obtained for any object. “Principle of Obtaining the View from the Left” figure shows the method of obtaining the view from the left of an object.
