how you are going. To know how you fared with self checks, review the answer keys found
at the end of the learning guide.

When you had completed all the tasks required in this learning guide, an assessment
exercise will be given to evaluate if you are already competent with the specified learning
outcomes in and ready for the next task. .If you feel ready for the assessment, consult the
facilitator.

A record of competency is provided on the last page to reflect how much of the required
assessment criteria have been met.

You may already have some or most of the knowledge and skills covered in this learner’s
guide. Talk to your trainer about having them formally recognized. If you have qualification or
certificate of competence from previous training, show it to your trainer. If the skills you
acquired are still current and relevant to the unit of competency they may become part of the
evidence you can present for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). If you are not sure
about the accuracy of your skills, discuss it with your trainer.

TYPES OF DRAWINGS, VIEWS AND PERSPECTIVES


A. Categories of Drawings

This introduces the five common categories of drawings. They are:


1. Piping and instrument drawings (P&IDs)
2. Electrical single lines and schematics
3. Electronic diagrams and schematics
4. Logic diagrams and prints
5. Fabrication, construction, and architectural drawings

1. Piping and Instrument Drawings (P&IDs)


• present functional information about a system or component
ex. piping layout
flowpaths
pumps
valves
instruments
signal modifiers controllers
• do not have a drawing scale
• present only the relationship or
sequence between
• present information on how a system
functions, not the actual physical
relationships
Figure 1. Example of P&ID
2. Electrical Single Lines and Schematics
a. Electrical Single Line
• designed to present functional information
about the electrical design of a system or
component
• provide the same types of information about
electrical systems that P&IDs provide for
piping and instrument systems
• electrical prints are not usually drawn to scale
Examples of electrical single line are site or
building power distribution, system power
distribution, motor control centers

components (resistors, transistors, and
capacitors) used in a circuit, as illustrated in
Figure 4
• used by circuit designers and electronics
repair personnel

Figure 4. Example of Schematic Diagram

4. Logic Diagrams and Prints


• depict several types of information
• provide a simplified functional
representation of an electrical circuit,
as illustrated in Figure 10
• do not replace schematics, but they
are easier to use for certain
applications

• architectural drawings present information about the conceptual design of the
building or structure
• fabrication drawings are found in machine shops and provide the necessary
detailed information for a craftsman to fabricate a part
• drawn to scale

Figure 6. Example of a Fabrication Drawing

B. Views and Perspectives


In addition to the different drawing formats, there are different views or perspectives
in which the formats can be drawn. The most commonly used are the orthographic projection
and the isometric projection.

1. Orthographic Projections
• widely used for fabrication
and construction type
drawings, as shown in Figure
16
• present the component or
system through the use of
three views:
o top view
o side view
o front view

Figure 7. Orthographic Projection


• drawn to scale and shows all components in their proper relationships to each
other

JZGMSAT Drawing By: Glenn F. Salandanan
TESDA IV Page 8 of 17
• contain information that is necessary to fabricate or construct the component or
system

Figure 8. Orthographic Projection

2. Isometric Projection
• single view of the component or system
• view is commonly from above and at an angle of 30°
• more realistic three dimensional view
• this view makes it easier to see how the system looks and how its various
portions or parts are related to one another
• may or may not be drawn to a scale

TYPES OF DRAWING PROJECTIONS


A. Pictorial Drawing
The pictorial drawings are non-specific but provide visualization. They can be
subdivided further into perspective, axonometric and oblique projections. In pictorial
projections, an object is represented as it is seen in 3D but on 2D paper.

Types of Pictorial Drawing

a. Axonometric Drawing- A type of pictorial with each of the three planes and axes at
any angle and not equal to 90°. The three types of axonometric drawing are as
follows:
1. Isometric – A type of axonometric drawing with each of the three planes and axes
equal to each other
2. Dimetric – A type of axonometric drawing with two planes on equal axes to each
other and a third plane of a different angle
3. Trimetric – A type of axonometric drawing with all three planes and axes not
equal to each other

Figure 100. Types of axonometric drawing

b. Oblique Drawing - A type of pictorial drawing with front plane true size and parallel to
frontal plane, the other two at any angle to the front. The two types of oblique
drawing are as follows:
1. Cavalier – A type of oblique drawing with all axis lines drawn at the same scale
2. Cabinet – A type of oblique drawing with the depth axis drawn half scale and the
other axis lines drawn full scale

TESDA IV Page 11 of 17
c. Perspective Drawing - A perspective drawing is the most used method of
presentation used in technical illustrations in the commercial and architectural fields.
The drawn objects appear proportionately smaller with distance, as they do when you
look at the real object (see Fig. 12). It is difficult to draw, and since the drawings are
drawn in diminishing proportion to the edges represented, they cannot be used to
manufacture an object.

Figure 112. Perspective drawing

B. Orthographic Projections

Orthographic Projection is a way of drawing an object from different directions.


Usually, front, side and top views are drawn so that a person looking at the drawing can see
all the important sides. Orthographic drawings are useful especially when a design has been
developed to a stage whereby it is almost ready to manufacture.
Orthographic projections can be subdivided into first and third angle projections. The
difference between the two is how the object is projected and the position of the views on the
drawing.

a. Third Angle Projections- Third-angle projection is used in the United States and
Canada. The projection plane is considered to be between the viewer and the object,
and the views are projected forward to that plane. The top view appears above the
front view, the right-side view is to the right of the front view, the left view to the left of
the front view, and so on.

JZGMSAT Drawing By: Glenn F. Salandanan
TESDA IV Page 12 of 17
b. First Angle Projections- Most European countries use first-angle projection. In first-
angle projection, the projection plane is on the far side of the object from the viewer.
The views of the object are projected to the rear and onto the projection plane
instead of being projected forward.

Figure 14. Views are projected backward in first-angle projection

Carefully study the symbols shown below. Normally when drawing in first or third-
angle projection a symbol is drawn underneath that clearly shows which angle of projection
has been used.

Figure 15. Symbol for first-angle and third-angle projection

The final arrangements of the views are shown in the drawing below. Notice how the
symbol for first angle orthographic projection has been added to the drawing.
