I have been reading about the projection conventions and am not sure if I completely understand them. I know the third-angle convention is preferred in the US and Canada and the first-angle in Europe. I have also seen the descript that the object is above the screen in the first angle convention and below the screen in the third.
Say you are shining a light through a translucent object onto a screen. Is the third-angle projection what you see on the screen from the object side and the first angle projection what you see if you stand on the opposite side of the screen from the object - or is it the other way around?
Many thanks in advance, Peter.
