To start with, first make two lines, one vertical and another horizontal in the middle of the paper such that they represent a “t” letter of English. This is what we need to draw for temporary use and will be removed later after the construction of the 3 – D rectangle is complete. Next we draw a Square whose measure of each side is 1 inch. Square must be perfect in Geometry so that 90 degree angles that are formed at respective corners are exact in measure. Now starting from upper right corner of the square we draw a line segment that will be stretched to a measure of 2 inches in the direction at an angle of 45 degrees. Similarly, we repeat the procedure by drawing another Line Segment from the upper left corner of the square and stretching it to 2 inches length in the direction at an angle of 45 degrees. These 2 line segments are considered to be the diagonals with respect to the horizontal line that we drew temporarily in starting. Also these lines will be parallel to each other. Next we draw a line that joins the end Point of these two diagonals.
Next starting from the very right of the 2 inch diagonal end point, draw a line of measure 1 inch that is supposed to be perpendicular to the temporary horizontal line. Next we need to join the lower left corner of the square with end point of the last 1’’ line we drew in 4th step and finally we get our 3 - D rectangular. Now we can erase our initial “t”. This 3- D rectangle resembles a Cuboid.
