Model for Descriptive Geometry by A. Jullien - Angle between Two Lines

Description
The given lines are the black strings: ab’ and dc’. They intersect at (m, m’). Segment ad on the horizontal plane creates a triangle with the given lines as sides. Point n on the horizontal plane is perpendicular to ad through point (m, 0). By rotating the triangle about line ab onto the horizontal plane, point (m, m’) maps to point M2. Angle aM2d is the angle between the two given lines.
