How does an "actor on a stage" help one remember how First angle projection works? (If I understand First angle projection, it is the "shadow" you get after illuminating the object from infinity) Equally how does a "shark in a tank" help one remember third angle projection? (If I understand third angle projection, the object is in a glass box and you draw on the box what you see through that window) -- SGBailey (talk) 09:12, 4 March 2014 (UTC)
[Elevation] is the corollary to the concept of a "view" (which is always overhead and is therefore referred to as an overhead view). Sorry, I couldn't get any meaning out of that - could somebody offer clarification? Thanks, --catslash (talk) 23:04, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
I removed the sentence as it was confusing and did nothing to explain the concept of an elevation. An overhead view is called a plan view, not just a view. --Mark viking (talk) 23:46, 19 May 2016 (UTC)
