What are missing views?

What are missing views?

In an Orthographic projection, two views are necessary to study about the object or understand the nature of the object. Sometimes, the third view is needed to completely envisage the object. Thus creating the missing view is of importance in orthographic projection. The meaning of two circles shown in the figure 3.1.

Which view do we not see in an orthographic drawing?

Orthographic drawings do not show depth or realistic views. A single-view orthographic drawing represents every object as having only two dimensions.

How can you check an orthographic drawing to be sure there are no missing lines?

What views are there in a orthographic drawing? Top, Side and front. How can you check an orthographic drawing to be sure there are no missing lines? Use each view.

How do you solve orthographic views?

Steps used to create an orthographic projection

  1. Choose a front view.
  2. Decide how many views are needed to completely describe the object.
  3. Draw the visible features of the front view.
  4. Draw projectors off of the front view horizontally and vertically in order to create the boundaries for the top and right side views.

Why is the missing view important in orthographic projection?

Sometimes, the third view is needed to completely envisage the object. It is necessary to create the third view from the two available views so that all the details of the object are obtained. Thus creating the missing view is of importance in orthographic projection.

How to draw the missing views and the given views?

Draw the given views and also the missing views A drawing without dimensions is of no use to engineers. Though we have the shape of an object in a rough drawing, the exact size of the object has to be clearly illustrated in the drawing.

How can I find the missing view of any object in engineering drawing?

If you are talking about drawing the missing elevation drawing, it can be drawn through orthographic lines. Actually the elevations are drawn by extending the perpendicular construction lines from the given object. These lines are joined and various features of the object are located. Some imagination is also required.

How is an orthographic projection used in Engineering Graphics?

To obtain an orthographic projection, an object is placed in an imaginary glass box as shown in Figure 1-3. The sides of the glass box represent the six principle planes. Images of the object are projected onto the sides of the box to create the six principle views. The box is then unfolded to lie flat, showing all views in a 2-D plane.
