Orthographic Views

Chapter Description

In this sample chapter from Engineering Design Graphics with Autodesk Inventor 2020, author James D. Bethune presents orthographic views using third-angle projection in accordance with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) first-angle projections are also presented.

Chapter Summary

This chapter introduced orthographic drawings using third-angle projection in accordance with ANSI standards. Conventions were demonstrated for objects with normal surfaces, hidden lines, slanted surfaces, compound lines, oblique surfaces, and rounded surfaces.

Inventor creates orthographic views directly from models. The tools on the Create panel and the Annotate panel were introduced for managing orthographic presentation views. Isometric views can also be created from models.

Section views are used to expose internal surfaces that are not directly visible in normal orthographic views. Cutting planes were used to define the location of section views. Offset and aligned section views also were created.

Techniques for creating detail views, broken views, and auxiliary views were demonstrated as well.
