Different Views

A prism is a 2-D shape stretched out to a certain depth.

One of the features of prisms is that you can cut anywhere along the depth of the prism and the face would be identical to the original face.

A prism has a face on one end which is identical to the face at the other end.

When drawing different views of prisms, we usually use 3 different views:
– Front View
– Side View
– Top View
