Parallel Line Pattern Development
- Draw a full (top) and (front) of the project, complete with the line.
- Divide the into 12 equal parts (see Divide a Circle Into 12 Equal Parts) and label it. It is common practice to label a round object with numbers.
- Project the plan view divisions down into the elevation view.
- Draw the directly to the right of the elevation view and divide it into 12 equal parts (see Divide a Line Using a Ruler on an Angle). Label it to match the plan view and make sure to start the labeling where you want the seam. Add any required seam allowances outside of the stretch-out.
- At the points where the cross the miter line, project them into the stretch-out.
- Following the labeling, circle the intersection points on the stretch-out. Don’t put a dot over the points, but circle around them.
- Using a flexible curve, join the points to draw in the miter line, completing the .
looking down at something, a “birds eye view”, “floor plan” (2D)
looking at the front or side of something, to have elevation (height), 2D
an intersection of 2 pieces- an irregular cut on the end of something
a shape which has been “stretched out”, to take a perimeter and make it straight
a line representing an edge or bend
the shape of the object, still in 2D form
