This post is about two types of models that I learnt making in my first semester. These were a part of the subject Engineering Drawing. At the time of making these used to look tedious but on completion used to give satisfaction…..Honestly!!
The first type were the models of the shapes whose sheets we used to draw for the subject. Under the section of Surface Development, we were taught to actually make the 3-D shapes.
We started with a basic cube and ended with shape added and subtracted models. But I should definitely mention that that the truncated models were the most challenging ones. Here is a picture showing all the models.
The second type was a scale-up or scale-down model.For this, we were instructed to choose any machine part and try creating the same part by scaling up or scaling down its measurements according to a particular ratio.
I chose a slide plate and scaled up its measurements by 3 times. Although it didn’t turn up to be exact same thing but it resembled much to the features of the original one.
Thanks for viewing!’:)
