 ===== 2D Primitives ===== ===== 2D Primitives =====
  
-Introduction+‘2D’ stands for two (2) dimensional. A 2D primitive is any shape that has two dimensions, which are width and length ​ (or X and Y.) The 2D dimensional shapes have no thickness (Although, JSCAD shows a very thin shape.)
  
-==== Resolution of Shapes ​====+One way of thinking about 2D shapes is anything that lays flat on a piece of paper, such as drawing a circle or a square. 
 + 
 +The mathematical study of 2D shapes and dimensions is called [[https://​en.m.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Plane_(geometry)|plane geometry]].

 +=== Resolution of Shapes ===
  
 All rounded shapes have a ''​resolution''​ option which controls tesselation. If ''​resolution''​ is set to 8, then 8 polygons are used to create 360 degrees of revolution. All rounded shapes have a ''​resolution''​ option which controls tesselation.
