projection, in which but a single plane of projection is
used. It is so named from the fact that the projections of
three equal lines, parallel respectively to three

machinery, in which the principal lines are parallel to
three rectangular axes, and the principal planes are
parallel to three rectangular planes passing through the
three axes.
