Sketching to Scale
In this exercise, you will create a freehand sketch of the plan view of a site.
Required Setup and Resources:
Grid paper, pencils, eraser, triangles, T-squares, and architect's scale
A mechanical pencil 0.5 mm and 0.7 mm
Complete Exercise 1-4 from p. 1-15 of the textbook by drawing the site plan shown in Figure 1-16 at a scale of 1/4"=1'. Your final drawing should look like Figure 1-16 given on p. 1-15 but without dimensions.
Sketch construction lines by extending two of the angular lines to the right edge of the border.
Sketch a construction line parallel to the other angular line 4' from it using a scale of 1/4"=1'.
Sketch all radii in their final form. Concentrate on making your pencil lines the same thickness and density as the printed lines.
Sketch the remaining vertical line solid and darken all lines necessary to complete the drawing.
Fill in the date, the class, and your name with your best lettering.
Submit your completed drawing for evaluation. You can also scan your drawing and submit the scanned image, if needed.
