method in one-
Draw the front view of the object on the ground line. If the front
view of the object is touching the picture plane. the front view is
true in size. If the plan view is behind or in front of the picture
plane, the front view of the object is smaller or larger, respectively
(figure 5-15, view C).
Project a vertical line from the station point to the horizon line to
locate the vanishing point (VP).
From the comers of the front view (D,
and F), draw visual
rays to the vanishing point.
line from point A of the plan view to the station point.
This line intersects the picture plane at point H. Draw a
perpendicular line from point to intersect the visual rays (points
and K). This accurately locates the back corners and defines the
depth of the object (figure 5-15, view D).
Darken the object outlines.
