Homework Help: Engineering Drawing

  1. Apr 26, 2008 #1
    Hi, Id like to figure out how to draw a sieve isometrically. Just a simple mesh sieve would be fine.. No Matter which way I look at it.. I cannot seem to find a way to draw it isometrically, would anyone be able to provide me a link or a useful tip to help me draw it thanks?

    Is there a specific shape you have in mind? A flat, round sieve is easy, but there's no particular reason to draw it isometrically. What CAD packages do you have available? Are you looking for an artistic rendering or a manufacturing drawing?

    Just a simple flat round sieve is suitable.. I am doing manufacturing drawing, I may just do orthographical drawings for the sieve, Is that suitable do you reckon?

    If you're just looking for a manufacturing drawing, the only orthographic view of interest is the front view. And, you need only show a circle, with a detail(s) leading off to show the actual mesh and/or the edge finishing. If you're using a standard off-the-shelf mesh, and you have raw edges, you need only the circle.
