For this exercise, please use the below materials to scale and trace a plan and section of the Hargrove Music Library. The plan should be of the quad level, and the section should be south-looking with the entrance shown in it. Make sure to use construction lines and layers to appropriately separate similar building elements into a hierarchy that will translate into line weights later on in Illustrator. Export the 2D Rhino linework as an Adobe Illustrator file at 1/8"=1'0" scale.

Week 1 Materials

Once in Illustrator, please use at least 5 line weights to clearly convey the different elements in the plan and section. The cut lines should POP out, while the topography lines should be very light.

Please save the plan and section as separate PDFs and combine into one PDF file (2 pages), labeled:

Last Name, First Name_Week 1_Section 01 or 02

Email to no later than Thursday night (July 4th) at 11:59pm. Also, please make sure your files aren't big. Anything over 25mb cannot be accepted by the gmail mail server. This will become especially important when we get into rendering.
