PROJECTION OF SOLIDS AND SECTION OF SOLIDS

Projection of Solids:

A solid is a three dimensional object having length, breadth and thickness. It is Completely bounded by a surface or surfaces, which may be curved or plane. The shape of a solid is described orthographically by drawing its two orthographic projections, usually, on the two principal planes of projection i.e., HP and VP.

The following are the different positions which the axis of a solid can take with respect to the reference planes:

1.     Axis perpendicular to HP and parallel to VP.

(CONE AND PYRAMID)

2. Axis perpendicular to VP and parallel to HP

(PYRAMID, CONE, PRISM)

3.     Axis parallel to both HP and VP, i.e., axis perpendicular to a profile plane.

4. Axis inclined to HP and parallel to VP.

(Auxiliary projection method)

(freely suspeded method)

5. Axis inclined to VP and parallel to HP.

6. Axis inclined to both HP and VP. (Not For University Syllabus)

SECTION OF SOLIDS:

The hidden or internal parts of an object are shown by sectional views in technical drawings. The sectional view of an object is obtained by cutting through the object by a Suitable plane known as the section plane or cutting plane and removing the portion lying between the plane and the observer. The surface produced by cutting the object is called the section and its projection is called a sectional plan or sectional elevation. The section is indicated by thin section lines uniformly spaced and inclined at 45°.

A sectional view of an object is obtained by projecting the retained portion of the Jet which is left behind when object is cut by an imaginary section plane and the portion the object between the section plane and the observer is assumed as removed.

The object is cut by a section plane AA. The front half of the object between the Section plane and the observer are removed. The view of the retained portion of the object is projection VP. The top view is projected for the whole uncut object.

Types of sectional views of solids:

By using the five different types of perpendicular section planes we .obtain the following five types of sectional views of solids:

1. Section of solids obtained by horizontal planes.

2. Section of solids obtained by vertical planes.

3.     Sections of solids obtained by auxiliary inclined planes.

4.     Section of solids obtained by auxiliary vertical planes.

5.     Section of solids obtained by profile planes.
