Projection of Straight Lines and Planes [First Angle]

Projection of straight lines, situated in first quadrant only, inclined to both horizontal and vertical planes – LOCATION OF TRACES ONLY. Determination of true length and true inclinations of straight lines from the projections (not involving traces) Projection of plane surfaces like rectangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, circle- surfaces inclined to one reference plane.

PROJECTION OF STRAIGHT LINES AND PLANES [FIRST ANGLE]

Projection of straight lines, situated in first quadrant only, inclined to both horizontal and vertical planes – LOCATION OF TRACES ONLY. Determination of true length and true inclinations of straight lines from the projections (not involving traces) Projection of plane surfaces like rectangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, circle- surfaces inclined to one reference plane.

PROJECTION OF LINES AND PLANES

A straight line is the shortest distance between two points. Projections of the ends of any line can be drawn using the principles developed for projections of points. Top views of the two end points of a line, when joined, give the top view of the line. Front views of the two end points of the line, when joined, give the front view of the line. Both these Projections are straight lines.

Projection of Plane Surfaces:

A plane is a two dimensional object having length and breadth only. Its thickness is always neglected; various shapes of plane figures are considered such as square, rectangle, circle, pentagon, hexagon, etc.

TYPES OF PLANES:

1.                Perpendicular   planes   which   have   their   surface

perpendicular to anyone of the reference planes and parallel or inclined to the other reference plane.

2. Oblique planes which have their surface inclined to both the reference planes.

TRACE OF PLANE:

The trace of a plane is the line of intersection or meeting of the plane surface with the reference plane; if necessary the plane surface is extended to intersect the reference plane. The intersection line of the plane surface with HP is called the

Horizontal Trace (HT) and that of VP is called the Vertical Trace (VT).

A plane figure is positioned with reference to the reference planes by referring its surface in the following possible positions.

1.     surface of the plane kept perpendicular to HP and parallel to VP

2.                 surface of the plane kept perpendicular to VP and parallel to HP

3.                 surface of the plane kept perpendicular to both HP and VP

4.     surface of the plane kept perpendicular to HP and inclined to VP

5.     surface of the plane kept perpendicular to VP and inclined to HP

6. surface of the plane kept inclined to HP and VP
