3INTRODUCTIONGraphics is used to represent complex objects and structures that are created from simple geometric elements, such as lines, circles, and planes. Current 3-D CAD programs use these simple geometric forms to create more complex ones, through such processes as extrusion, sweeping, and solid modeling Boolean operations. Therefore, to fully exploit the use of CAD, you must understand geometry and be able to construct 2-D and 3-D geometric forms.ENGINEERING GEOMETRYGeometry provides the building blocks for the engineering design process. Engineering geometry is the basic geometric elements and forms used in engineering design. Engineering and technical graphics are concerned with the descriptions of shape, size, and operation of engineered products. The shape description of an object relates to the positions of its component geometric elements in space. To be able to describe the shape of an object, you must understand all of the geometric forms, as well as how they are graphically produced.
4Figure 8.2The Cartesian coordinate system, commonly used in mathematics and graphics, locates the positions of geometric forms in 2-D and 3-D space.
6Figure 8.4In a 3-D coordinate system, the origin is established at the point where three mutually perpendicular axes (X, Y, and Z) meet. The origin is assigned the coordinate values of 0,0,0.

31Figure 8.64An ellipse is a single-curved-surface primitive and is created when a plane passes through a right circular cone oblique to the axis, at an angle to the axis greater than the angle between the axis and the sides.
32A circle when viewed at an angle, appears as an ellipse. Figure 8.65A circle when viewed at an angle, appears as an ellipse.
33Figure 8.66Mathematically, an ellipse is the set of all points in a plane for which the sum of the distances from two fixed points (the foci) in the plane is constant. The major diameter (major axis) of an ellipse is the longest straight-line distance between the sides and is through both foci. The minor diameter (minor axis) is the shortest straight-line distance between the sides and is through the bisector of the major axis. The foci are the two points used to construct the perimeter and are on the major axis.
