  • ISOMETRIC PROJECTIONS

    ISOMETRIC PROJECTIONS

    ISOMETRIC PROJECTIONS ISOMETRIC PROJECTION  It is 3-dimensional view of an object on a reduced scale. Sizes on this are 81.5 % of the true sizes. These are drawn from given front view, top view and side view. There are only true dimensions on the front, top and side views.  ISOMETRIC AXES  In this, three lines […]


  • INTERSECTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF SURFACES

    INTERSECTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF SURFACES

    INTERSECTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF SURFACES It means that one surface is entering another surface OR A surface is to be connected to another surface. It may be easy to connect any shape object into a plane wall. But it is very difficult for curved surfaces. For example a pipe is to be connected at right […]


  • SECTION OF SOLIDS

    SECTION OF SOLIDS

    SECTION OF SOLIDS SECTION OF SOLIDS Section views are a very important for designing an object or a machine. Section of solids improve clarity and reveal interior features of parts which are other wise not visible. Sections of solids are based on the use of an imaginary cutting plane to reveal the interior details. Its importance increases further […]


  • PROJECTIONS OF SOLIDS

    PROJECTIONS OF SOLIDS

      PROJECTIONS OF SOLIDS WHAT IS A SOLID?  Every solid phase substance in the universal is 3-dimensional. Hence every solid substance is a solid. For example, book, wall, table, chair, fan, pen etc. TYPES OF SOLIDS—-TWO TYPES Polyhedral (Regular polyhedral Have number of faces, equal and regular, ir-regular polyhedral which unequal faces) Examples of polyhedral are: […]


  • Projection of Oblique Planes

    Projection of Oblique Planes

    PROJECTION OF OBLIQUE PLANES An oblique plane is one which is inclined to both HP and VP. These can be expressed as two different cases. CASE 1  The surface of the given oblique plane, say, is inclined at ϴ to HP and at Ф to VP and has one edge or diameter or diagonal parallel […]


  • Projections and Traces of a plane

    Projections and Traces of a plane

    Projections and Traces of a plane PROJECTION OF PLANES In actual practice, one is interested to draw the projections of a solid. But it is started with the projection of points. Number of points makes a line, then projections of a line is done. Lines form planes and hence then projections of a plane is […]


  • ORTHOGRAPHIC PROJECTIONS

    ORTHOGRAPHIC PROJECTIONS

    ORTHOGRAPHIC PROJECTIONS Orthographic projections represent a three dimensional object on a 2 dimensional drawing sheet. It gives multi-views of an object at right angles to each other. Orthographic Projection 2 dimensional views of the object are used. These projection is a very clear method of communication. It is well recognized method in the world. It […]
