In this sketch, TV is rotated and made // to XY line. Hence it’s corresponding FV a’ b 1’ Is showing

True Length & True Inclination with Hp.

Here a -1 is component of TL ab 1gives length of FV. Hence it is brought Up to Locus of a’ and further rotated to get point b’. a’ b’ will be FV.

6. A straight line PQ has its end P 20 mm above the H.P. and 30 mm in front of the VP. And the end Q is 80 mm above the H.P. and 70 mm in front of the V.P. If the end projectors are 60 mm apart, draw the projections of the line. Determine its true length and true inclinations with the reference planes. reference planes. of the VP. Draw the projections of line AB if it is inclined at 30° to the HP and 45° to the VP, and it is 50 mm long. 60° to the XY line. Draw the projections of the straight line AB if its top view is 35 mm long. Find the true length and the angle of inclination of the line with the VP. 10. A straight line PQ has its end point P 10mm above HP and 15mm in front of the VP. The line is 50mm long and its front and top views are inclined at 60° and 45° respectively. Draw the projections of the line and find its inclinations with the HP and the VP. TRACES OF THE LINE These are the points of intersections of a line ( or it’s extension )
with respective reference planes.
A line itself or it’s extension, where ever touches HP, that point
is called trace of the line on HP(It is called HT)
Similarly, a line itself or it’s extension, where ever touches VP,
that point is called trace of the line on VP (It is called VT)
Vertical Trace :-
It is a point on VP.
Hence it is called FV of a point in VP.
Hence it’s TV comes on XY line.( Here onward named as ‘v’)
