Three 2d views to create orthogonal projection

How can I do 2d drawing with 3 views, like mechanical drawing was taught years ago, then use the drawing to create a 3d model, again as engineering students were taught years ago to construct an orthogonal projection using the 3 views? ie Old school mechanical drawing.

Instead of thinking in 2D, I create 3D models and then use scenes to create the 3-view in LayOut.

Very cool, thanks.
