It is a point at which the line if produced will meet or intersect a plane respectively.

  • Horizontal Trace of the line: It is a point at which a line meets or intersects the horizontal plane. It is donated by the letter H.
  • Vertical Trace of the line: It is a point at which a line meets or intersects the vertical plane. It is donated by the letter V.

In case when the line is parallel to both the horizontal plane and the vertical plane then there will be no trace on the planes.
