Cut Square Pyramid - Question
Department of Technological Education Cut Square Pyramid - Question The given views show the Front Elevation and unfinished Plan of a cut square pyramid. Draw the following views :- The completed Plan End Elevation Surface Development of sides True Shape of cut

Finding Position of End Elevation
Department of Technological Education Finding Position of End Elevation Using the Plan and the Front Elevation project the position of the End Elevation and show the slope of the sides. 1 2 Number each of the points in each view. 4 3 1 /4 2 /3 3 /4 1 /2

Finding Position of cut on End Elevation
Department of Technological Education Finding Position of cut on End Elevation Project from the Front Elevation to find the cut surface on the End Elevation. 1 2 Darken the outlines on the End Elevation. 4 3 1 /4 2 /3 3 /4 1 /2

Finding Position of cut on Plan
Department of Technological Education Finding Position of cut on Plan Project from the Front Elevation to find the cut surface on the Plan. 1 2 Darken the outlines on the Plan. 4 3 3 /2 1 /4 1 /4 2 /3

Finding True Length of pyramid corner
Department of Technological Education Finding True Length of pyramid corner Before the Development can be drawn it is necessary to find out the True Length of the corner of the pyramid so that accurate sizes for the development and the cut points can be found 1 2 3 /3 /2 1 /4 Draw a curve on the plan with the centre being located at the centre of the pyramid, the radius being measured at one of the corners, and the end point of the curve being the centre line. 4 Project the point found onto the Elevation baseline and draw a generator to the apex of the pyramid. 1 /4 Project the cut points from the elevation onto this True Length line.

Drawing the outline of the Development
Department of Technological Education Drawing the outline of the Development Indicate where the development is going to be placed, and then draw the first generator to indicate one corner of the pyramid. 1 2 1 3 4 Measure the length of the corner of the pyramid using the True Length line and draw a curve on the Development at this size. 2 Step off the length of each of the sides of the pyramid onto the Development. 3 Draw generators to each of these points to indicate the fold lines Number each of the points. 1 /4 2 /3 3 /4 1 /2 4 1

Drawing the cut on the Development
Department of Technological Education Drawing the cut on the Development Step off from the True Length line the distance from the apex of the pyramid to each cut point and transfer these sizes to the correct generators on the Development. 1 4 /4 2 3 /3 /2 1 /4 1 2 Join each of the points to show the developed shape of the cut. Also add the flat edges to the base of the pyramid on the Development. 3 Darken the outlines on the Development. Add the fold lines to complete the view. 4 1

Drawing the True Shape Department of Technological Education
To find the True Shape, project the cut points away from the Front Elevation at right angles to the cut. 1 2 1 2 3 4 Draw a datum line on the True Shape parallel to the cut line of the Front Elevation and at right angles to the lines just projected. Use the centre line of the plan as a datum line. 4 3 1 /4 2 /3 3 /2 Measure the vertical distances from the datum to each of the cut points on the plan. Transfer each of these sizes on to the True Shape. Join each of the points found to produce the True Shape. Complete the view by darkening the outlines.
