Orthographic Example

1. Create Model

Use the orthographic plans (right) above to create the 3D model for this example. Note: isometric views (left) do not typically have dimensions.

2. Setup Drawing

3. Add Views & Dimensions

Orthographic Challenge

Use the isometric drawing below to model the part and create a set of orthographic plans. Apply the following principles as you annotate your plans:

  • Include enough information for the reader to create the part, but avoid any extra dimensions
  • Always dimension object lines (solid), and never hidden lines (dashed)
  • Annotations (dimensions & notes) should be placed outside the object
  • Try to make your plans as readable as possible and avoid crossing dimension lines when possible
