The vanishing point is defined as a point at which receding parallel lines appear to meet when represented in linear perspective. When drawing 3D images, a vanishing point represents a point of origin for one-point, two-point or three-point perspectives. This Demonstration identifies and draws the projection lines, shown in white, in an image. These converge at the vanishing point where most of the lines intersect. The TPHS pictures are from Torrey Pines High School.
