STAGES OF DRAWING A 3D SOLUTION

V. Ryan 2007 - 2010

 

 

An additional piece of work relating to the working drawing is a three dimensional drawing of your final design. This is possibly the most difficult type of drawing you are likely to produce, whether drawn by hand or on a computer. The example solution shown below is a maze type game. The internal parts have been cut on a CNC machine and the box / container has been made by hand with traditional joints.

   

1. Using the isometric grid (3D grid) as a guide to most of the lines, draw the main sides to the box.

Draw carefully and accurately using a ruler or T-square and set squares. Draw faintly first and when all is correct go over the lines so that they are a dark. Use a sharp pencil at all times.

   
 
   

2. Add internal detail. In this case the box contains a circular maze cut out on a CNC machine. The internal ‘square’ is added.

3. The maze is then drawn. A compass cannot be used to draw the circles as they appear as oval / ellipse shapes. They must be drawn carefully by hand.

   
 
   

4. The perspex / plastic lid is then added.

5. Colour is carefully added. The colours used should reflect the type of material used to make the final design. In this case the perspex lid will be translucent. Therefore, it has been shaded lightly so that the maze underneath can be seen. The wood has been shaded to reflect the colour of the wood being used.
