**Draw**center points on each edge (Hint: to find the center point,

**draw**diagonals to each corner.) Connect the points with an ellipse, keeping the curve tangent to the box at the center points marked. To create a

**cylinder**, connect 2 ellipses with tangent lines parallel to the appropriate axes.

Herein, what are the three types of pictorial drawings?

There are many **types of pictorial drawings** and these include isometric, oblique, axonometric and planometrics and the four **drawings** figures 164 - 167 illustrate the differences between them. Of these, isometric **drawings** are the most common.

**Isometric**projection of

**Cone**:

**Draw**the rhombus PQRS using the

**isometric**Scale.

**Draw**the base of the ocne as an ellipse by Four centers (Approximate ) method. From B and C

**draw**lines parallel to

**isometric**axes and obtain O1 (offset method). From O1

**draw**a line parallel to the third axis.

Similarly, you may ask, how do you draw a cylinder?

**How to Draw a Cylinder in 3 Simple Steps**

- Begin by drawing a foreshortened circle. How much you “squash” your circle will be determined by the angle you are viewing your cylinder from.
- Draw straight lines from the edges of your foreshortened circle. These lines will represent the sides of your cylinder.
- Draw a curved line at the bottom of your sides.
