## Auxiliary View Layout

### Lesson Plan Overview / Details

In this lesson the purposes of auxiliary views in support of regular orthographic views and how an auxiliary view is developed will be covered.  They will develop a working drawing that  includes the auxiliary view and dimensions in their proper place and position.

### Lesson Time

2 class periods each at
50 Minutes

### Objectives and Goals

• Describe the purpose of an auxiliary View
• Explain how an auxiliary view is projected
• Draw viewing plane lines related to auxiliary views
• Drawing auxiliary views as part of a working drawing

### Activities in this Lesson

• Using a projector, open an orthographic working drawing without an inclined or sloping surface.  Assess their prior knowledge of the standard views (front, top, and right side views.  Review for content.  Open a second orthographic working drawing that contains a sloping or inclined surface.  Ask students how they would handle sloping surfaces when not see the true length.

• Axillary View Drawing With General Notes [ View Image ] [ Download Original ] An auxiliary view projected from the principle view with dimensions in decimal inches. Also with general notes
• Drawing Samples - Lecture

Provide a handout of an isometric part that includes sloping surface.  I would provide the students with why we need an "auxiliary view" to correctly provide the information to build the product.

Show the power point "Auxiliary Views" with additional information to the students.  Emphasize projection perpendicular to the inclined edge to create the auxiliary view.

Additional vocabulary would be introduced at this time.  Issue  additional samples fo completed auxiliary drawings to give the students examples of what is expected.  As the drawings are reviewed the vocabulary needed would also be expressed.

• Auxiliary Views Power Point [ Download ] This auxiliary views power point demonstrations the layout procedures for creating an auxiliary view from the frontal plane and the dimensioning techniques to fully describe this additional, alternate view.
• Provide a completed working drawing with dimensions that includes a sloping surface. Review the drawing with the students emphasizing proper use of vocabulary.

Issue a second working drawing handout which includes the principle views shown.  I would have a similar drawing on the projector and the students will sketch the auxiliary view using perpendicular lines and related steps to compete the assignment.  Move around the lab visually checking for understanding.

Second day of activity.

Students are issued a second working drawing that need an  auxiliary view and proceed to provide the necessary views (including the auxiliary view) with dimensions.

1 . Students will create lines perpendicular to the line that represents the inclined.

2.  Have students project lines from the top view (in this case) to the front view and copy the inclined lines to the opposite end of the perpendicular lines.

3.  Transfer the depth dimensions to the auxiliary view using construction lines.

4.  Finish the auxiliary view by transferring the remaining dimensions..

5.  Develop object lines and add required dimensions.

• Auxiliary View Problem [ View Image ] [ Download Original ] Students will redraw the front view, add a partial top view, and add the auxiliary view with dimensions to 2 place decimal inches.

### Assessment

Assessment Types:
Rubrics, Projects, Draw Checking Criteria

Completed drawings are assessed against the attached "DRAW CHECKING" criteria. Since the first is an exercise in completing the auxiliary view by adding sketched lines, the total maximum points would be 10 points based on the attachment.

The second assignment in this lesson is a  drawing assignment is of significant value and valued at a maximum of 20 to 30  points since all views are to be dimensioned based on the instructor.

The third assignment is used at the end to ensure that the students have mastered the layout concept .

The assignment is elementary in nature thus valued at a maximum of 10 points.
