**Isometric ellipses**• In an isometric drawing, the object is viewed at an angle, which makes circles appear as ellipses. • Holes • Cylinders**Sketching a Circle**• Draw a square whose sides are the diameter of the circle. • At the center of each side define the point of tangency for the circle. • Draw the diagonals of the square. • Orient the paper so you can draw equal arcs to construct the circle**Introduction to Isometric Projection**CUBE • Isometric means equal measure • All planes are equally or proportionately shortened and • tilted • All the major axes (X, Y, Z) are 120 degrees apart**60o**60o 30o 30o Isometric Axis • Making an Isometric Sketch • Defining Axis**Diameter**Diameter Length Step 1 – Creating the Base Box**- Corner to corner to get center**- Lines to tangent points Tangent Points Lines to Tangent Points Step 2 – Ellipse on Front Face**Sketch in Arcs**Tangent Points Step 3 – Ellipse on Front Face**Repeat for ellipse on rear face**Draw Tangent Lines for Profile Complete Visible Part of Back Ellipse Step 3 – Ellipse on Back Face and Profile**Create Box for Hole**Sketch Ellipse Step 4 – Ellipse for Hole on Front Face**Summary**• Technical drawings are an effective communication media • Projections of various types can be used • Isometric projections and creating isometric sketches has been introduced • Assignments will emphasize simple isometric sketches**Review Questions**b) c) d) a) 120° 60° 60° 90° 60° 120° 120° 240° • _______ sketches present the object in a single view, with all three dimensions represented • _______ sketches present the object in a series of projections, each one showing only two of the objects’ three dimensions • Which among the following is NOT an isometric axes (Hint: Use the Isometric Grid paper for reference)?**Tips for Drawing Assignments**• Follow Sketching and Text conventions. • Title Information is required. Avoid labels on the sketch. • Leave the construction lines – MUCH lighter and thinner than the finished lines • Include centerlines on isometrics**Tips for Drawing Assignments**• Do not try to shade drawing – this is not a pencil sketching class. • Use grid paper. Try to sketch along grid lines. Practice sketching straight lines and curves on a grid sheet.**Tips for Pictorial Views**• In pictorial views, hidden lines are not shown unless absolutely required for clarity, such as; • Non-visible bottom of a blind hole • Important feature of object not in direct view • In pictorial views, holes or notches without bottom/end visible should be assumed to go completely through the object. • Centerlines are to be shown on all isometric pictorials.**In Class Assignment**• Use Isometric Sketch Paper (ISP)
