This exercise is intended to help students generate drawings from their "Double Negative" digital models. All final drawings should exhibit an understanding of line weights, line types, section cuts, orthogonal relationships between section and elevation, and representing three-dimensional space within the confines of two-dimensional drawings.
Using your digital "Double Negative" model, produce a composition within Illustrator consisting of a drawing of a section and a drawing of an elevation.
It is important to follow this weeks workflow carefully. Extracting Line Work from a 3D Massing Model . AND MAKE SURE TO CREATE NEW LAYERS AS NEEDED AND ORGANIZE THEM FOR EFFICIENCY.
The artboard dimensions of the final drawings should be 8.5" x 11". Final submissions are to be saved as an Illustrator (.ai) file.
