Today’s lesson for me was a nice first taster in to the kind of work I will be doing for the rest of my career.
Scaling and measurements was a little scary at first, converting real measurements was tricky at first to get my head around, but I found working with a scale ruler helped.
I pretty much found that all the ‘1’s on the scale rulers were the equivalents (in different measurements) of 1 meter, and the 2 = two.
1:1 would be real scale, so for instance if I was to draw a toaster on a scale of 1:1 I would draw it exactly the same size, 1:2 would be half the size. 1:100 would be 100 x smaller = 1 meter =1cm and 1:50 would be twice as big with 2cm for every meter.
So for the task of this lesson we drew to scale a quick plan of the desk and then we drew a layout for an interior. we had a key to work from which would show us how to represent windows and door space areas on a plan view. I found this task relatively easy to do, I enjoyed drawing this sketch precisely and getting a nice quality finish. I learnt how to sketch a sliding door, and i also was able to figure out some unknown measurements too which was pleasing.
