Plan & Section

Orthographic drawings had done hand drafted plan, section, elevation for each configuration for surface development for 3D models. I always enjoy the Hand drafting. We had solved it with our group before we had done it in VSR. While Solving configuration and doing drafting is calculating and technical drawing for the models. Below is a sketches of my old home where I lived when I was ten year old. I feel the emotional connection with all those happy moments, routine relations with the space of home, fights with cousins, those corners of lonely people from the family. Carving in thick … Continue reading Plan & Section

Figuring Out configurations

During the last two weeks, we were working on making models and orthographical drawings of given configurations. We made 2 plans, 4 elevations and sections for each configuration to understand it better. It was something new as well cause till then VSR used to be sketching based but this time it was technical. We were working on a total of 4 configurations between them we were also being introduced to two other parts of it. Making a model of the childhood home out of a 2-inch thick thermocol sheet by carving it out.  Then also we made plans and sections … Continue reading Figuring Out configurations

Multiview drawing

Multiview drawing is drafting Plan, Section and Elevation of geometric prisms. We got two weeks to complete the configuration model and orthographic drawings. As we had to three – dimensional model of it, it was a little hard to understand the descriptive text. Using paper or cardboard and drawings in 1:1 scale, the model had to be made in 1:2 scale. There were four different layouts, and each one took two days to complete. This was the initial configuration, which had a hexagonal prism and a pentagonal prism, with the hexagonal vertices oriented north-south, and the pentagonal vertices aligned east. … Continue reading Multiview drawing


These last two weeks vsr was more focused on the technical aspects of the drawing and model making quality. It was a contrast of the last two vsrs. We were given 4 different configurations and then had to make models of the same and draft their drawings. The configurations were very big and it took more of our time then just 1 hour in the morning.  We used to solve the configuration a day prior to its submission and discuss with peers if we have any doubt. So this really helped me interact with others.One day we had to make … Continue reading Technicalities

From Models to Drawings

Unlike the VSRs I had done so far, this one was mostly technical. I was supposed to make models of four different prismatic configurations and then draft their orthographic projections.  Reading the brief of the exercise overwhelmed me. I read the description for the first configuration and while I could understand what each word in the description meant, I just wasn’t able to conjure an image in my head of what it would look like once all the words came together. I read and reread but to no avail. And this was the case with the other three configurations as … Continue reading From Models to Drawings
