Basic Orthographic Drawings in AutoCAD
|This exercise practices producing drawings in AutoCAD from an image of a massing model.
Assessment objectives include:
Working from the given image of a massing model (jpeg file, link below), produce a minimum of four orthographic views of the described massing. Your drawing should be at a 1:1 scale relative to the dimensions in the image. Although it has certain features that begin to resemble a building, you should treat the massing described here as a simple solid. There are two options here - either consider the mass to be made of a single, solid material (like a strangely formed block of artisinal tofu) or consider the top layer to be one material and the bottom layer to be a second material.
The image contains some red lines, which indicate required sections. Any elevation views and plan views are acceptable. In AutoCAD, set up the drawings on sheets of equal size. Print out the finished drawings and bring them to the next class meeting to pin up for review. Be sure to arrange the drawings on the wall such that alignments between drawings follow the conventions of orthographic projection.
The drawings should be laid out so that all drawings register with at least one other drawing, and they should all be printed on 11x17 sheets of paper.
