What is the difference between 2D and 3D animation?

A two-dimensional structure has only two surfaces; length and breadth whereas a three-dimensional structure has three surfaces; length, breadth and height.

Two-dimensional figures are also referred to as “plane” figures or “flat” figures due to their appearance whereas 3D shapes are comparatively more complex and can sometimes be difficult to draw when combined together.

A few examples of the 2D shapes are rectangle, square, circle, triangle, or any other polygon and a few examples of the 3D shapes are cuboid, cube, sphere, cone, prism, cylinder, pyramid, etc.
