Cutaways

Duncan MacGruer's cutaways

Promote a quick grasp of concept with cutaways and exploded views

Sometimes you have to blow something up to see how it works. These views reveal relationships and inner workings that would otherwise require lengthy written descriptions. Cutaways, exploded views and elevation sections are applicable to science, engineering, manufacturing and architecture. More examples of how thoughtfully executed design can lead to “Aha.. I get it!”
