Using the Intersection Command - page 1

OK I know it's a very corny metaphor.
CorelDRAW’s Intersection tool provides an easy way to produce complex shapes without tedious editing. By adding the isometric functions explained here the production of complex isometric objects is greatly simplified. This month I will produce illustrations of: a boat like shape, a wedge with a point, quarter slice pie, and a two rise cam.

Engineering drawing of the boat like shape.
Draw a 2 inch circle by selecting the Ellipse tool ((F7) and constraining (Ctrl) while you drag across the page. Duplicate (Ctrl+D) the circle and reposition it with the Pick tool.
Select the Intersection tool from the Shaping Roll-Up and intersect. Delete the original objects to reveal the top orthographic of the boat shape.
