Oblique Projections, Continued
Offset measurements are measurements or locations that are parallel to
certain edges on the main surface of the object and remain parallel to the
same edges after projecting to another view. When an object is drawn as a
cavalier projection, all offset measurements may be drawn full scale.
object is drawn as a cabinet projection where the receding axis is drawn in
reduced scale, measurements parallel to the receding axis must be drawn to
the same reduced scale.
Figure 6-9 shows an object with offset measurements.
