Orthogonal projection (or . It is a form of parallel orthographic projection) is a means of representing a three-dimensional object in two dimensions projection, where all the projection lines are orthogonal (relating to or composed of right angles) to the projection plane. With multiview orthogonal projections, up to six pictures of an object are produced. The views are positioned relative to each other according to either of two schemes: first-angle or third-angle projection . In (used in Australia and New Zealand) each, the appearances of views may be thought of as being projected onto planes that form a 'glass box' around the object. Although 6 different sides can be drawn, 3 sides of a drawing give These views are known as enough information to make a 3D object. front view, top view and right side view.
