Cabinet Perspective

Cabinet Perspective

Means of representing a solid based on an oblique projection in which two of the three axes are normalized.

Properties

• In cabinet perspective, the illusion of depth is created by giving the vanishing edges an angle between 30° and 45° with respect to the first axis (horizontal axis).
• However, in cabinet perspective, the lengths parallel to the third axis are reduced by a certain proportion with respect to the norm of the other two axes.
• This type of representation preserves the length and parallelism of the segments.
