First we watched a slideshow presentation to help us understand more about the subject technical drawings. Then we did a few scales to see what the looked like at a certain scale with a scale ruler and some freehand. As a group we worked out how big the table was which was 1200mm(12m). We had to draw yourself where you were sitting in a scale drawing as much as you could including everything in front of you and your seat.
Now to get us to do more technical drawings we had to do a scaled plan drawing of a room at 1:50 on A3 paper. We had a hand out with the measurements on it and had to draw that and go around it in fineliner afterwards.
During this lesson I learned about how to use a scale ruler and produce a plan drawing of a room to scale from measurements.
