PurposeThe main purpose of sketching is to convey ideas.Engineers have to use sketches to brainstorm ideas, as well as, to show others what they are working on or what should be designed.Sketches are also used to document measurements from the field before they are produced as solid models on the computer.

PurposeProper documentation in a notebook is essential.When proper documentation is made,ideas are not lost and projects can be duplicated.Figure 1 is a sample from a notebook where a sketch was made and notes as well as dimensions have been documented.

Sketching TechniquesLine Types:
Vertical LineInclined Line
Sketching TechniquesFinding the slope angle of an inclined line:
Run = 4Rise = 2
Note: Rise and Run unitsdo not matter (As long as theunits are the same). You are finding an angle. In the above case, we are counting grid boxes.Equation:tans = RISE/RUNtans = 2/4tans = .5s = arctan .5

SIZE AND PROPORTION
Size and ProportionAlthough you have learned to draw lines and arcs, you can not communicate properly until you understand how to sketch with the correct size and proportion. Without proper size and proportion your sketch will not look right.Size: Length, width, height, distance. How big is the object you are sketching?Proportion: If two objects are five feet apart in real life, then those two objects must appear to be five feet apart in your sketch.
Size and ProportionHow to create proper size and proportion. Technique IUsing a pencil to measure.Figure 2
Hold your pencil at arms length as you see in Figure 2. Use the top of the pencil and your thumb as a distance for the height of the window. Thisdistance will be used as a reference for sketching the restof the house as we did in the house on the next slide.

Figure 3As you see in the completed house in Figure 3, the units of the numbered dimensionsare in windows.You should also notice thatthe use of graph paper also helps in creating proper sizeand proportion.
Size and ProportionHow to create proper size and proportion. Technique IIBoxing in the sketch.In Figure 4 we are sketchinga chair. We sketch the boxesto the largest outside dimensions of our final object. Notice that light construction lines are alsoused to help guide us tothe proper size and proportion.

Technique IIBoxing in the sketch.Finally we use our sketchingtechniques for drawing arcs,lines and circles to completeour chair in Figure 5. Notice the box we started with is still existent as light construction lines. These areour guides for proportion andsize.
ALPAHBET OF LINESConstruction Line: Very lightly drawn lines used as guides to help draw all other lines and shapes properly. Usually erased after being used.
Alphabet of LinesSection Lines:Lines are used to define where there is material after a part of the object is cut away.
Center Line: Lines that define the center of arcs, circles, or symmetrical parts.They are half as thick as an object line.
Short Break Line: A freehanddrawn line that shows where a part is broken to reveal detail behind the part or to shorten a long continuous part. (Seeexample of Long Break Lineon the next slide.)Hidden Line: Lines used to show interior detail that is not visible from the outside of the part. Object Line: Thick lines about .6mm(.032in) that show the visible edges of an object.
Alphabet of LinesDimension Lines: Lines that are used to show distance. Arrows are drawn on the ends to show where the dimension line starts and ends. The actual distance is usually located in the middle of thisline to let you know the distance being communicated. Dimension lines are used in conjunction With extension lines to properly dimension objects. Long Break Lines: Break lines are usedto either show detail or as in this case they canbe used to shorten very long objects thatdo not change in detail. Notice that this part is 12 long however we have shortenedthe drawing with break lines to use our space more efficiently.
How many lines from the previous slide can you identify here?
Leader Lines: Leader lines are used toshow dimensions of arcs, circles and to help show detail. An arrow head is used to pointto the part you are dimensioning and the line comesoff the arrow point usually at a 45 degree angle.At the end of this line a horizontal line is drawnwith a note at the end telling information about what is being pointed at.
Extension Lines: Lines used to show wherea dimension starts and stops on an object. Used with dimension lines to properly dimensionan object. The line is 1/16 away from thepart as to not get confused with the object lines
Cutting Plane Line: A line used to designate where a part has been cut away to see detail. The arrows should point in the direction that you are looking at the cutout.
Alphabet of linesHow many lines from the previous 2 slides can you identify here?
Phantom Lines: Phantom lines are used to identify alternate positions that a part my take up. In this example we are using Phantom lines to show that the door handle may only move 45 degrees from its horizontal position.
PictorialPictorial sketches are sketches that show height, width, and depth all in one view. There are three common types:IsometricOblique Perspective
Note one view shows height width and depth.Width and depth linesare drawn at 30 degrees from the horizon line.
Width lines areparallel with the horizon.Front view is truesize and shape.Front view is truesize and shape.In Cavalier Oblique depthis full size. This cubehas the same height, widthand depth dimensionsDepth in an obliquepictorial is distorted.Easiest of the pictorialsto draw.
Front view is truesize and shape.Width lines areparallel with the horizon.In Cabinet Oblique depthis half size. This allows the viewto look more realistic.
PerspectivePerspective is a way to draw that shows a view of the object in the most realistic way.Vanishing points are used to guide the lines in the object to the horizon line or the horizontal line you see at your line of sight. We will discuss one and two point perspective.
One Point Perspective
Note: The vanishingpoint in this sample is chosen for demonstration.
All lines in the depth projectto one point (vanishingpoint). The location of the vanishing point is basedon your line of sight.
Two Point Perspective
In two point perspective the depth lines converge on onevanishing point (VP2) and thewidth lines converge on theother vanishing point (VP1).
ShadingShading allows us to create a more realistic image by showing how light reflects on the object. We use shading in engineering graphics to show features not easily seen otherwise. There are two main types of shading:Straight LineStippling
Shading (Straight Line)
Orthographic (Multiview Drawings)Pictorial sketches are great for engineers to explain ideas and communicate what the final part will look like to the customer.Unfortunately, pictorial drawings have some disadvantages. Foreshortened views and distorted features do not allow for accurate prototyping. Many times, for parts to be accurately depicted,you need straight on views of each surface.
Orthographic (Multiview Drawings)In order to obtain these straight line views we have a type of drawing called Orthographic Projection also known as Multiview drawings. Orthographic projection is a way to project a view based on a line of sight that is perpendicular to that view. There are six of these views to any object as shown in the next slide.
Orthographic (Multiview Drawings)
The arrows represent the line of sight associated with each view.Use the button below to jumpbetween thisview and the orthoview on the nextpage.
Orthographic Principal Views
Views are projected onto planes that exist on the face of that view. Arrows show the direction of the projectionNote how the viewsare oriented. Each view isadjacent to the other asif they were unfolded from a 3D shape.
Front, Top and Right views are used most often. You can see how other views resemblethese three except they are not as clear due to hidden lines.
Orthographic Angle of ProjectionThe example you have just seen is shown in the third angle of projection. This is the standard in the United St
