This lesson introduces students to orthographic projection drawings. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the different views of orthographic projection drawings and draw them.
The activities in this lesson are designed to give students a basic understanding about what orthographic projection drawings are and where they are used. It also will give them a chance to practice drawing orthographic projection drawings. The teachers should have a good understanding of orthographic projections and how they are used. Become familiar with several orthographic projection drawings so that you can help the students. An orthographic projection drawing shows three views of the object. These include the top, front, and right side view. This is useful because it gives someone the exact dimensions of the object on these three views. Combined with an isometric drawing, cabinet and furniture makers have complete drawings to build an object. Look at examples on the web sites for further clarification on what an orthographic projection drawing is and how it is used.
Students should have a basic understanding of drafting.
