An auxiliary view is an orthographic view which is projected onto any plane other than the frontal.or profile plane. horizontal. .

To show the true size and shape of surface it always appears foreshortened .

‡ .Auxiliary views are created by positioning a new line of sight relative to the object.

and depth dimension is shown true length. .is an auxiliary view projected from the front view.

is an auxiliary view projected from the top view. . and the height dimension is shown true length.

.is an auxiliary view projected from the side view. and the width dimension is shown true length.

auxiliary is a single view projected from a secondary or another tertiary auxiliary view. including a new auxiliary view from an existing auxiliary view. . is a single view projected from a primary view. is a single view projected from one of the six principal views.It is possible to create any number of auxiliary views.

and tertiary auxiliary view etc. secondary. The line of sight (LOS) determines the direction of the projection lines used in each auxiliary.Primary. .

.

a half auxiliary view may be drawn . and to save space or time.yIf an auxiliary view is symmetrical.

short break lines . while still maintaining complete shape description within a multiview drawing.Used to remove the need to draw difficult curves on foreshortened faces.

A cylindrical part that is cut by an inclined plane results in a surface that is an ellipse and can only be shown true size and shape with an auxiliary view. .

Circular shapes appear as elliptical when viewed at an angle other than 90° .

.Determining the true measurement of a dihedral angle is a common application for auxiliary views.

.They are needed to clearly communicate the drawing s intent.

.

BACK .y A line of sight is an imaginary ray of light between an observer's eye and the object.

BACK .surfaces on multiview drawings do not give a clear or accurate representation of size or shape.
