Trimming Objects - page 1

In this months’ lesson I will focus on using CorelDRAW’s Trim tool to produce a complex orthographic view that can be easily transformed into isometric. The objects to be produced in this lesson will be a complex block, a heat sink, a clamping block, a split ring and a cam. Please make sure that you understand what is depicted in the engineering drawing example that begins each exercise before proceeding.

Last month I left you with Dick Barry’s drawing interpretation problem (right) and invited you to produce an isometric of your solution. Here (far right) are the two correct answers. Hope you did better than I did. Ignoring the "There are no hidden lines missing" statement was a mistake. The winner of it7 is Doug Bastron from HP.
