Model for Descriptive Geometry by A. Jullien - Three Points Determine a Plane

Description
The three points in space are represented at the bends in the three wires at points (a, a’), (b, b’) and (c, c’). The red lines connect the points in pairs showing the resulting triangle that lies on the plane that was to be constructed.
