Basics of the 3 Views

Drafting is a type of communication that engineers and manufactures use in order show how an object goes together or what it looks like. There is a specific way that these drawings are made. In general, there are three basic items show in the drawing: front view, right view, and top view. In the video below I show what each of the views communicates and how they are setup on a page.

    This is a great video, very easy to understand. Do you have anything on section views. Students have a difficult time determining where to place the section view on the drawing after it is cut. It is so easy with a program like SolidWorks to put the section anywhere but explaining “just because you can doesn’t mean you should” is much more difficult.
