**dimensional**back, front, right, and left

**views**of

**three**-

**dimensional**objects using unit cubes are formed.

Then, what are the three dimensions of a solid?

**Three**-**dimensional Solids** have **dimensions** in 3 directions - length, width and depth. In geometry, we are mainly interested in **three** types of 3D **solids** which are: Prism - where the cross-section has the same shape and the same size all the way along the object (e.g. cube, rectangular box, cylinder)

Also, what is a 2 D shape? In geometry, a two-dimensional **shape** can be defined as a flat plane figure or a **shape** that has two dimensions – length and width. Two-dimensional or **2**-**D shapes** do not have any thickness and can be measured in only two faces.

Then, what is the main difference between 2d and 3d?

The term **2D** stands for Two-Dimensional, whereas **3D** stands for Three-Dimensional. **2D** represents an object in just two dimensions, while **3D** represents it in three dimensions. It is best to think of it with an example. A car has three dimensions.

What is a 3 D shape?

In mathematical terms, a **3D shape** has three dimensions. The **D** in '**3D**' stands for **dimensional**. In a world with three dimensions, you can travel forwards, backwards, right, left, and even up and down. The ability to travel up into space and back down differentiates **3D** from 2D. The world you live in is all **3D**.
