Projections of Planes

BASICS

A plane is a two dimensional object having length and breadth only. Its thickness is

always neglected. Various shapes of plane figures are considered such as square,

rectangle, circle, pentagon, hexagon, etc.

1. Perpendicular planes which have their surface perpendicular to any one of the

reference planes and parallel or inclined to the other reference plane.

2. Oblique planes which have their surface inclined to both the reference planes.

Traces of a Plane

The trace of a plane is the line of intersection or meeting of the plane surface with the

reference plane; if necessary the plane surface is extended to intersect the reference plane.

The intersection line of the plane surface with HP is called the Horizontal Trace (HT) and

that of VP is called the Vertical Trace (VT).

POSITIONS OF A PLANE

A plane figure is positioned with reference to the reference planes by referring its surface

in the following possible positions.

1. Surface of the plane kept perpendicular to HP and parallel to VP

2. Surface of the plane kept perpendicular to VP and parallel to HP

3. Surface of the plane kept perpendicular to both HP and VP

4. Surface of the plane kept inclined to HP and perpendicular to VP

5. Surface of the plane kept inclined to VP and perpendicular to HP

6. Surface of the plane kept inclined to both HP and VP

Consider a square plane ABCD having its surface perpendicular to HP and parallel to

VP as in Fig. 3.2(i).

Projections of Planes

The front view is projected onto VP which is a square a1,b1,c1,d1 having true shape

and size. The top view is projected onto HP and is a line ab(c)(d) parallel to XY. The

invisible corners are enclosed in ( ).

The plane surface is extended to meet HP to get the HT which coincides with the top

view of the plane. It does not have a VT because the plane is parallel to VP.

The projections and traces obtained are drawn with reference to the XY line as shown

in Fig. 3.2(ii).

Consider a square plane ABCD with its surface perpendicular to VP and parallel to HP

as in Fig. 3.3(i).

(ii)

Figure 3.3

The top view is projected onto HP which is a square abcd having true shape and

size. The front view is projected onto VP and is a line ab(c)(d) parallel to XY. The invisible

corners are enclosed in ( ).

The plane surface is extended to meet VP to get the VT which coincides with the

front view of the plane. It does not have a HT because the plane is parallel to HP.

The projections and traces obtained are drawn with reference to the XY line as shown

in Fig. 3.3(ii).

76

Consider a square plane ABCD having its surface perpendicular to both HP and VP as

in Fig. 3.4(i).

The front view bc(d)(a) and top view ab(c)(d) are projected onto VP and HP

respectively. Both the views are lines perpendicular to the XY line. The true shape of the

plane is obtained in the side view which is projected onto a profile plane (PP) which is

perpendicular to both HP and VP. In this case, the left side view abcd is obtained on

the PP which is at the right side of the given object (plane).

The plane surface is extended to meet HP and VP to get HT and VT which coincide

with the top and front views respectively.

The projections and traces obtained are drawn with reference to the XY line as shown

in Fig. 3.4(ii).

perpendicular to VP as in Fig. 3.5(i).

Projections of Planes

The top view abcd is projected onto HP. It is smaller than the true shape and size.

The front view is projected onto VP and is a line ab(c)(d) inclined at an angle q to XY.

The invisible corners are enclosed in ( ).

The plane surface is extended to meet HP to get the HT which is a line perpendicular

to XY. The plane surface is also extended to meet VP to get the VT which is a line inclined

at an angle q to XY.

The projections and traces obtained are drawn with references to the XY line as shown

in Fig. 3.5(ii).

Consider a square plane ABCD with its surface inclined at an angle f to VP and

perpendicular to HP as shown in Fig. 3.6(i).

The front view abcd is projected onto VP. It is smaller than the true shape and

size. The top view is projected onto HP and is a line ab(c)(d) inclined at an angle f to XY.

The invisible corners are enclosed in ( ).

The plane surface is extended to meet VP to get the VT which is a line perpendicular

to XY. The plane surface is also extended to meet HP to get the HT which is a line inclined

at an angle f to XY.

Note:

(i) When a plane is placed with its surface inclined to one plane and perpendicular

to the other plane, its projections cannot be drawn directly. It is obtained in two

steps and will be discussed in the examples that follow.

projections are obtained in three steps which will be discussed in the following
