of 1st angle and 3rd angle projection. Projection of points situated in all the
four quadrants. Problems involving projection of points, projection of two
points situated indifferent quadrants.
Construct an ellipse by eccentricity
Construct a parabola by eccentricity
Construct a hyperbola by eccentricity
involute is the locus of a point on a string, as the string unwinds itself from
a line or polygon, or a circle, keeping always the string taut.
INVOLUTE OF A CIRCLE AND SQUARE
curves are formed by a point on the circumstance of a circle, rolling upon a
line or an another circle. The rolling circle is called the generating circle.
The line on which the generating circle rolls is called base line. The circle
on which the generating circle rolls is called directing or base circle. A
cycloid is a curve traced by a point on the circumference of a circle which
rolls without slipping along a line
An epicycloids is a curve traced by a point on the
circumference of a circle which Rolls without slipping on the outside of an
A hypocycloid is a curve traced by a point on the
circumference of a circle when it rolls without slipping on the inside of
Projection of Points:
is simply a space location of infinitesimal size. It may represent the corner
of an object, the intersection of two lines or a designated spot in space. The
projection obtained on vertical plane VP is called the elevation and on
horizontal plane HP, the plan. The
intersection line of the vertical plane and the horizontal plane is known as
ground line or reference line.
Position of points:

GENERAL PROCEDURE TO DRAW PROJECTION OF POINTS
given data identify the quadrant
2. Draw the
XY line and projection
this projector mark by dots the distances of the given point form the HP and
VP, on the corresponding side of the XY line, depending upon the quadrant in
which the point lies, to locate the front view and the top view, respectively.
4. Make the
front view and the top view bold and rub off the unwanted length of the
projector to complete the solution.
1. Draw the involutes of a circle of diameter 40mm and draw
the tangent and
the normal to the involutes at any points on
Draw the front, top, and side views
of the object shown below.
Draw the coin cure, if the distance
of focus from the directory is 70mm and the eccentricity is ¾. Also draw a
tangent and a normal at any point on the curve.
A circle of 50mm diameter rolls as a
horizontal line for ¾ of a revolution clockwise. Draw the path traced by point
P on the circumference of the circle. Also draw a tangent and normal at any
point on the cure
Draw a hyperbola when the distance
between its focus and directrix is 50mm and eccentricity is 3/2. Also draw the
tangent and normal at a point 23mm from the directrix.
The focus of a conic is 50mm front
the directory. Draw the locus of a point P moving in such a way that its
distance from the directrix is equal to its distance from the focus. Name the
cure. Draw a tangent to the curve at a point 60mm from the directrix.
Draw the involutes of a circle of
diameter 40mm and draw the tangent and the normal to the involutes at any point
on the cure.
