 used when drawings are going to be reproduced at smaller or larger sizes than the original numeric scale. scale always remains in proportion to the print size
Term
 what is a drawing that shows a top view of a building and it's surroundings
Definition
 site plan
Term
 what characterizes an isometric drawing?
Definition
 all axes are drawn to the same scale
Term
 orthographic drawings are unreal views of objects primarily because
Definition
 the point of view is directly in front of every location on the object (elevation drawings)
Term
 perscpective drawings
Definition
 give the most accurate two dimensional representation of the three dimensional world because it uses the principle of convergence (dimishing size)
Term
 picture plane in perspective drawing
Definition
 the imaginary vertical plane on which all points of the object are projected to create the two dimensional image.
Term
 station point (SP)
Definition
 two lines are extended from the station point to the left and right parallel to the two major sets of parallel lines of the object -
Term
 horizon line in perspective drawings
Definition
 at some convenient point under the plan, a horizontal line is drawn across the paper, the horizon line, and represents the place where the earth meets the sky.
Term
 vanishing points
Definition
 the points where the horizon line intersects the two vertical lines projected from above - the left vanishing point & the right vanishing point (VPL, VPR)
Term
 height line
Definition
 where the picture plane touches the plan drawing - the only line on the perspective drawing where vertical dimensions can be directly scaled.
Term
 a perspective is the best drawing type to use when presenting to a client because
Definition
 it shows the most realistic view of the perception of space and objects
Term
 which scale measurements should never be used when preparing drawings
Definition
 3/16" and 3/32", because they are too close to the 1/8" and 1/4" measurements
