How to draw 2d objects on 1d paper?

  1. Jul 23, 2012 #1
    Here in the 3d world, we have 2d paper where we can draw 2d representations of 3d objects.

    How would a 2d being draw a representation of a 2d object on a line?

    Is that even possible?

    It would just be a line representing the width of the cross-section present in that 2d beings' plane from the angle that they look at it.
