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

Above
Object Lines

Hidden Lines

Centerlines
