    Default Technical Drawing Question

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    How do you draw the left side and right side view of a pipe like the attached file?

    If you don't understand what I am asking, please see below image for reference.

    This is the 3D view of the pipe:

    When you make a slice through a tube you are left with an ellipse, the major axis is the width of the tube, and the minor is the height which you can take directly from the front view, (the bottom part of the outer edge would be flat).

    Why not let AutoCAD do it for you? Create a 3D model of the pipe and extract the required 2D views using the Flatshot or ViewBase (a.k.a. - BaseView) commands.

    When I was in civil, we drew pipe ends like so:

    I don't think the OP was asking about how to represent a pipe end. His question is a bit more specific.

    And if the slice were made at a 45 degree angle the result would look how?

    An example of a pipe that has been sliced at a sixty degree angle. Visual style is Conceptual. 2D views (upper) were extracted via Flatshot from the 3D models below. BTW... I did not access your zip file. Your angle may be different than mine.

    I think I would have to disagree with you on that.
