Orthographic Projection #1
By Glenn Sokolowski
In this interactive and animated object, learners examine orthographic projection and the Glass Box Theory. Front, side, and top view development is demonstrated with pictorial views of each object to help develop 2D to 3D visualization skills.
The learner will understand how to view an object for interpretation in the standard orthographic format and then accurately sketch three orthographic views using 3rd angle projection.
Brain Exercise: Visualization #1
In this interactive object, learners practice their 3D visualization skills by identifying the correct isometric view of an object. Front, side, and top orthographic views are shown.
