Default Isometric Drawings?

Do you do them, are you good at them?

Here is a cool online iso program.

That's what you have to properly size on the Ky Master's Exam, and also the Ky Journeyman's Exam, but of course the Master's being a little more tougher.

We have to draw three of them on our state exam. 30% of the exam too if i recall. And on a side note on that issue. I didn't think that it was very fair. Electricians dont have to draw wiring schematics or wiring isos. Gcs dont have to draw anythings. But I will give props to the mechanical guys for AC work. Man oh Man, that is a lot of stuff to have to know. I have a brother-in-law who is the lead tech for Trane here in tally, I couldn't believe how many books and manuals he carrys in the van with him.

I've only been shown how to do this once in my 2 years in the class, do you have any good materials that would give me some pointers? Whats the proper way to represent a pipe running on a 45* angle from the other pipes?



(must be my firefox but i don't see anything on that page :( )

really hard to explain without being there but the best thing i can tell you is to buy a 30-60-90 triangle. the 90 on the triangle represents the vertical, the 30 are the main runs and the 60 are the branches.

If you do a Google search for isometric graph paper you will find some websites where you can download a PDF and print your own as needed. I don't have the bookmark in my home machine or I would post a link.
