Measurement and Unit Conversions

   There are 2 common measurement systems: the metric system and the U.S. system. In order for scientists and engineers from different parts of the world to communicate, people have to be able to convert measurements. We have recently been measuring different objects using both systems and converting measurements from one system to another. Although both systems have the same time units, the measurements for distance and volume are completely different. Thankfully, we are able to use conversion factors to convert any measurement from any system into another system of measurements.

2.4 Multiview Sketching

      For the multiview sketches, we sketched the top, front, and right of each object. We had an isometric sketch to look at and we were supposed to sketch it as well. Multiview sketching shows more detail than other sketches and that is why it's used by professionals.

2.2 Perspective Sketching

     Perspective sketching gives a realistic 3D view of an object. There can be 1, 2, and 3 point sketches. A vanishing point is a place where all lines will meet in a sketch. Perspective drawing takes up some time because you have to draw extra line and then erase them or make them bolder. I enjoyed learning this new concept.

Activity 2.1 Isometric Sketching

    Isometric Sketching shows the object's height, width, and depth. That makes isometric sketching 3D sketching. In class we learned how to make isometric sketches as well as sketch isometric circles. Sketching the circles involved several steps. My isometric circles turned out to be pretty bad since I cannot draw a straight line. With a little practice in sketching and shading we are all going to be able to do good isometric sketches.
