Maby I shuld explain this more in detail, ---- as when a student place solids and meshes and get a nice sceen , then even calculated from a drawing database with all points represented as 3D points, and even the program with 2D calculations can determine how to hide one object behind another, ---- then this is still on a screen even a 2D screen. True that the computer are a nice drawing board, as it make you input 3D cooerdinates , create 3D solids and meshes to form a 3D presentation, but what I promote, are rather a "Magic box" that with a press on a button, generate the structural framework to create what you se in 2D on the screen , as the actural framework for this building in a full assembly.
Now with CAD programs things work like this but there are a great difference in the filosofy of inputting 3D points, to be able to add a perspective by math. and get the result 2D on the screen with hidden lines removed, acturly this is a technike as old as CAD, very different than an idear with the perspective of an assembly outside the screen in _real_ 3D.
