Auxiliary Views - Team Drafting



In this lesson a team of three students will develop a fully dimensioned multi-view drawing from an isometric drawing that will include an auxiliary view.

The drafting team composed of three drafting students will collaborate to complete an auxiliary drawing together. Each student as part of the team will draw a major view with the associated dimensions. One will draw orthographically the view from where the auxiliary view will originate. A second student will draw a partial view not including the sloping surface. The third, the major player on the team will draw the auxiliary view which will project the true shape of the inclined plane. Engineering drawing is communicating graphically. Teamwork from the original idea, through the development of the design and documentation of the product through manufacturing is based on TEAM WORK. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.

This lesson is based on utilizing board drafting however with modifications CADD operations could be employed.
