The projected properties of a triaxial generalization of the modified Hubble mass model are investigated. The projected surface density can be evaluated analytically, allowing us to investigate its properties in analytic forms. The profiles of axis ratio and position angle of the major axis of constant density elliptical contours, as a function of viewing angles, can be compared with observations.
