a twodimensional graphic representation of an object in which the projecting lines are at right angles to the plane of the projection. Also called orthogonal projection. Cf. isometric (def. 5).[166070]

common method of representing threedimensional objects, usually by three twodimensional drawings, in each of which the object is viewed along parallel lines that are perpendicular to the plane of the drawing. For example, an orthographic projection of a house typically consists of a top view, or plan, and a front view and one side view (front and side elevations).* * *
