Three Basic Types of Technical Drawings

Freehand sketches, Instrument drawings, Computer drawings

Types of Axonmetrics

Isometric(3 equal axes, 3 equal angles), Dimetric(2 equal axes, 2 equal angles), Trimetric(0 equal axes, 0 equal angles)

Four Basic Types of Projections

Orthographics, Axonmetric, Oblique, Perspective

Three Common Pictorial Drawings

Isometric(Axonmetric), Oblique, Perspective

Isometric Drawings

- most common pictorials
- 2 faces 30 degrees above the horizontal
- axes 120 degrees between each axis
- horizontal lines drawn at 30 degrees
- vertical lines remain vertical

Isometric Dimensioning

- dimension lines parallel to axes
- extension lines extended in line with these axes

Oblique Drawings

- front view drawn as in orthographic
- front view shows all features with true shape and size
- top and side view projected back from front view
- views can be at any angle (15, 30, 45 degrees common)

Cavalier Oblique

- entire drawing uses same scale
- sometimes creates distorted appeareance
- front view true size
- receding axis angle is variable (normally 30, 45, 60 degrees)
- depth dimension (receding axis) half size

Cabinet Oblique

- measurements on receding axes reduced by half
- more visually realistic representation
- often used for drawing cabinets

Perspective Drawings

- most realistic of all pictorial drawings
- receding lines in drawing meet at vanishing point instead of being parallel
- eliminates distortion at the back part of pictorial drawings

Parallel Perspective (One Point)

- one face of object shown as front view
- lines parallel to front view remain parallel
- lines the are perpendicular to the front view converge at a single vanishing point

Angular Perspective (Two-Point)

- similar to isometric drawings
- one edge of the object is place in front
- two faces that meet at this edge recede to different vanishing points
- all lines parallel to each face go to the different vanishing points

Exploded Pictorial Drawings

- used to show relative position of parts of construction details
- used to clarify assembly sequence
- common in appliance and cabinetry service manuals

Possible number of Orthographic Views

Six

You can adequately describe most objects with ___ orthographic views.

Three

Front view is most ________ of the object.

Descriptive

Normally the longest dimension is chosen as the _________.

Width (or depth)

First and Third Angle Projections

First Angle - International
Third Angle - U.S.

Most common combination of views to use:

Front, Top, and Side View

Views other than the Principal Views (Front, Top, and Side Views) are called ________ views.

Auxiliary

Normally, dimensions are shown _______ dimension line.

Above

Object Lines

- represent visible features for an object
- solid line
- highest precedence

Hidden Lines

- represent features that can't be seen in the current view
- dotted line
- precedence over center lines

Centerlines

- represent symmetry and mark the center of circles, the axes of cylinders, and the axes of symmetrical parts
- Long short Long lines
- lowest precedence
