After reading this chapter, you will be able to
Identify sections and sectional views of solids
Draw sectional views of cut surfaces of solids such as prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones
Draw the true shape of the cut surfaces of simple solids
Locate the position of the cutting plane if the true shape of a section is known
Imagine a solid to have been cut by a straight plane, called a cutting plane (CP). The new surface created by cutting the object is called a section. If the portion of the object between the cutting plane and the observer is imagined to have been removed and if the projection of the remaining portion of the object is drawn, the view that is obtained is known as the ...
