Cutaway Drawing - Technique


The location and shape to cut the outside object depends on many different factors, for example:

  • the sizes and shapes of the inside and outside objects,
  • the semantics of the objects,
  • personal taste, etc.

These factors, according to Diepstraten et al. (2003), "can seldom be formalized in a simple algorithm, But the properties of cutaway can be distinguish in two classes of cutaways of a drawing":

  • cutout : illustrations were the cutaway is retricted to very simple and regularly shaped of often only a small number of planar slices into the outside object.
  • breakaway : a cutaway realized by a single hole in the outside object.
