Seeing Orthogonal views in 3-D?

  1. Jul 14, 2013 #1
    I'm having a hard time envisioning what the orthogonal view of this object in 3-D. It is mainly because of the continuous surface on the front view. Is that way in the back and the there are rectangular blocks sticking out? Thank you. I would have an easier time if a right view was included but there are the only two views.

    Yes, exactly. Very good, Matriculator. There are rectangular blocks sticking out.

    It is complicated and tricky.

    I didn't build this to scale is it something like this?

    When I display the views in SW they seem to match up. But I still think that it's still be a bit too convoluted to be that.

    Matriculator: Yes, you drew it correctly in post 3. Nice work.

    Thank you very much sir. I spent hours thinking about this.
