### 2.1: isometric circles and ellipses

1. 1. Sketching an Isometric Circle
2. 2. Sketching an Isometric Circle Circular features and cylindrical forms are common in engineering designs, and appear as ellipses in isometric pictorials.
3. 3. Use points and construction lines to box in the location where the cylinder’s circular face occurs. Next, connect the four corners with diagonal construction lines. Sketching an Isometric Circle
4. 4. Tangent points are identified by placing marks at the mid- point locations along the four outside edges, and ⅔ of the distance from the box center to each outside corner on the four diagonals. Sketching Isometric Circles
5. 5. Four individual construction line arc segments are then drawn tangent to the marks that were created in the previous step. Sketching Isometric Circles
6. 6. The construction line ellipse is then traced over with an object line. Sketching Isometric Circles
7. 7. The process is repeated where the other end of the cylinder occurs. It should be noted that only part of the second ellipse will be visible. Sketching Isometric Circles
8. 8. Use construction lines to connect the two ellipses, and to identify where the object line for the second ellipse will begin and end. Trace out the final object lines. Sketching Isometric Circles
9. 9. Add tonal shading to curved surface by drawing straight lines between the elliptical faces. Varying the distance between the lines will give the illusion of reflected light. Sketching Isometric Circles
