A simple and efficient hidden line algorithm for finite element models is described here. The algorithm runs quickly, it has low computer storage and core size requirements. The method does not require any calculation of trigonometric functions and is able to treat planar quadrilateral polygons without subdividing them into triangles. Detailed flowcharts are presented for a better understanding.
