Q. |
## The straight lines which are drawn from various points on the contour of an object to meet a plane are called as |

A. | connecting lines |

B. | projectors |

C. | perpendicular lines |

D. | hidden lines. |

Answer» B. projectors | |

Explanation: the object will generally kept at a distance from planes so to represent the shape in that view projectors are drawn perpendicular to plane in orthographic projection. projectors are simply called lines of sights when an observer looks towards an object from infinity. |

- A line of 12 cm length is perpendicular to profile plane and the least distance from this line to profile plane is 6 cm. This is at a distance of 4 cm from the vertical plane and 5 cm from the horizontal plane. What is distance from the point on line far away from the profile plane to profile plane?
- Drawing straight lines on both the surfaces of solids and then pointing the points where they intersect and drawing lines which forms the line of intersection this process of finding the line of intersection is termed as method.
- A point in 2nd quadrant is 15 cm away from both the horizontal plane and vertical plane and orthographic projections are drawn. The distance between the points formed by front view and top view is
- A point in 4th quadrant is 30 mm away from both the horizontal plane and vertical plane and orthographic projections are drawn. The distance between the points formed by front view and top view is
- An object is kept in one of the quadrants of principal planes of projection, for the front view the view is first and object is next and for top view the object came first and then the view on plane (the observer is at top right side of principal planes). The object is in which quadrant?
- A point is 5 units away from the vertical plane and 4 units away from profile plane and 3 units away from horizontal plane in 1st quadrant then the projections are drawn on paper the distance between the front view and top view of point is
- A point is 8 units away from the vertical plane and 2 units away from profile plane and 4 units away from horizontal plane in 1st quadrant then the projections are drawn on paper the distance between the side view and front view of point is
- A point is 20 units away from the vertical plane and 12 units away from profile plane and 9 units away from horizontal plane in 1st quadrant then the projections are drawn on paper the distance between the side view and front view of point is
- A point is 2 units away from the vertical plane and 3 units away from profile plane and 7 units away from horizontal plane in 1st quadrant then the projections are drawn on paper the shortest distance from top view and side view of point is
- A point is 20 units away from the vertical plane and 12 units away from profile plane and 9 units away from horizontal plane in 1st quadrant then the projections are drawn on paper the distance between the side view and top view of point is
