- What other items could this type of section view be useful?
- Why are the hidden lines removed from the side with the section view?
Procedure: Use the provided “Chocolate from the box of chocolate” and cut it in half directly through the center. Now sketch the CANDY AS YOU SEE it after it has been cut in half front, top, right side, and isometric views in the space provided.
