Views of Solids
Solids can be viewed from top, front, back and sides.
e.g. This object can be viewed in six different ways.
Nets of Solids
A net is a flat pattern in two dimensions which, when cut out and folded, will make a solid figure.
A net shows all of the faces of a solid.
Isometric graph paper, which is made up in a triangular pattern, instead of the usual squares, can be used to draw views of three dimensional objects.
e.g. An isometric drawing of the cuboid is shown below.
Each dot on isometric graph paper is the same distance from any other dot.
