Auxiliary Views - Design Brief



The students will design a shape that is derived from a DESIGN BRIEF. A DESIGN BRIEF is a comprehensive written document for an original designed project developed in concert by a person or business for a product. The written document is focused on the desired results of design - not aesthetics.

In this lesson the students will be able to develop a fully dimensioned multi-view drawing from an original design that they created. They will first sketch a design of a shape that includes common features such as a negative cylinder (hole), fillets and rounds, a large radius, and an inclined plane. Including an inclined plane will necessitate an auxiliary view part as of the drawing.
