EXPLODED DRAWINGS - 4

V. Ryan 2006

 

Three dimensional exploded drawings are very difficult to draw. Another way of drawing this type of view is to draw the object in two dimensions as a side view or a front view. An example of a toy for a young child is shown below. As the toy is pulled along the wings move up and down. The mechanism for this movement is best understood if the toy is drawn with an exploded view, showing the toy disassembled.

 
   
   

The side view is left in its assembled form although two wheels have been removed so that the mechanism (cams) can be seen. The front view is exploded. This means that various parts can be viewed and the way they go together understood.

   

QUESTIONS:
1. Draw a small object such as a toy for a young child and draw it either in three or two dimensions. The drawings should include at least one exploded view.
2. Label the various parts.
3. Add notes to ensure that the construction / manufacture of the object is more likely to be understood.
