- 1. ISOMETRIC PROJECTION Part I Prof.T.JEYAPOOVAN Department of Mechanical Engineering Hindustan Institute of Technology and Science Chennai-603103, India www.EGlive.in
- 2. Isometric axes and Isometric Line • Isometric view or projection shows all three dimensions of an object which are useful to understand and visualize an object. • There are 3 isometric axes with an angle of 120º between them. • Any line drawn parallel to an isometric axis is called isometric line. www.EGlive.in
- 3. Isometric View and Isometric Projection • To draw isometric view true dimensions are used. • Isometric view is used for single solid. • To draw isometric projection, isometric dimensions are used which is 0.82× True length. • Isometric projection is used for combination of solids. • Consider isometric projection and isometric view of a rectangular prism shown in fig. www.EGlive.in
- 4. Box Method • Box method is used to draw isometric view or projection of an object. • A rectangular or square box of suitable size is used to enclose the object in such a way that some of the corners or edges touch the box sides. • Construct the isometric view/projection of the box using the isometric axes. www.EGlive.in
- 5. Example 1: A hexagonal prism of base side 30 mm and axis length 60 mm is resting on HP on its base with a side of base parallel to VP. Draw the isometric view of the prism. • Draw the TV and project the FV of the prism. • A rectangular box of exact size is used to enclose the prism in TV such a way that some of the corners or edges touch box sides. • Draw two isometric axes at 30° and construct the box in isometric. • Measure the corners of the prism from TV and mark them on the sides of the box in isometric. • Darken the top, left and right edges of the prism to complete the isometric view. www.EGlive.in
- 6. Example 2: Draw the isometric view of a hexagonal prism of base side 30 mm and axis length 60 mm rests on HP on one of its rectangular faces with its axis perpendicular to VP. • Draw FV and TV of the prism. • A rectangular box of exact size is constructed horizontally to enclose the prism in such a way that some of the corners or edges touch the box sides. • Draw one isometric axis at 30° and another vertical to construct the box horizontally in isometric • Measure the corners of the prism from FV and mark them on the sides of the box. • Darken the right, left and top edges of the prism to complete www.EGlive.in the isometric view.
- 7. 4-Centre Method • 4-Centre method is used to draw an ellipse in isometric for a circle. • Construct the rhombus in isometric using circle diameter as sides. • Draw arcs using 4-centres m,n,1 and 3 with radius shown fig. • For isometric projection, isometric scale is used to draw the rhombus. www.EGlive.in
- 8. Example 3: Draw the isometric view of a vertical cylinder of base diameter 50 mm and axis length 60 mm. • Draw TV and FV of the cylinder. • A square box of exact size is used to enclose the cylinder. • Construct the box in isometric. • Use 4-centre method to draw the top base as an ellipse in isometric and repeat the same procedure for bottom base. • Draw left and right extreme generators. • Darken the top, left and right visible portion of the cylinder to complete the isometric view. www.EGlive.in
- 9. Example 4: Draw the isometric view of a vertical cylinder of base diameter 50 mm and axis length 60 mm. • Draw FV and TV of the cylinder. • A square box of exact size is used to enclose the cylinder. • Construct the box horizontally in isometric. • Use 4-centre method to draw the front base as an ellipse in isometric and repeat the same procedure for rear base. • Draw top and bottom generators. • Darken the top, left and right visible portion of the cylinder to complete the isometric view. www.EGlive.in
- 10. Example 5: A pentagonal pyramid of base side 30 mm and axis length 65 mm is resting on HP on its base with a side of base perpendicular to VP. It is cut by a plane inclined at 30° to HP and perpendicular to VP and passes through a point at a distance 30 mm from the apex. Draw the isometric view of the remaining portion of the pyramid. • Draw TV, FV of pyramid and cutting plane at 30° to XY. • Draw a rectangle to enclose base of pyramid in TV and rhombus in isometric to mark base corners. • Produce a new corner to touch the side of rectangle like m, then mark it on the sides of rhombus. • Draw a line from m parallel to an isometric axes. • Measure the horizontal distance from TV and mark in isometric, similarly get other new points in isometric. • Darken the visible edges to complete the isometric view. www.EGlive.in
- 11. Tips to draw Isometric View/ Projection • Draw the TV and FV of the solid and are used to complete isometric view/projection. But it is not compulsory to draw TV & FV, box can be directly constructed to draw the isometric view/projection. • Hidden lines used for invisible edges are not drawn in isometric view/projection. • In isometric view/projection, marking and dimensioning may be omitted and the drawing of the three dimensional object is shown clearly by using dark lines for visible edges. www.EGlive.in
