Guest Lecture On Engineering graphics.
By ASHOKA GROUP OF INSTITUTIONS Supported by Indian Concrete Technology
Topic: Orthographic Projections in Engineering graphics.
Throughout human history we have used pictures to convey ideas, express
ourselves, present information, etc. Basically we have used pictures to
communicate. However different people and cultures used different types
of pictures as media to communicate this was a problem that faced engineers,
designers, builders, architects, etc. throughout history. We didn't have one way of
communicating our ideas that everybody understood.
Gaspard Monge faced this problem when he started as an Engineer in the French
Military. He devised a system that could be used to communicate an object to
anyone across the world. This system is called Orthographic Projection and was
quickly adopted by army engineers. However France was at war and Monge's
system was kept top secret. It wasn't until many years later that Monge was allowed
to publish and teach his system. Shortly this system spread across and
revolutionized world industry. (Orthographic Projection.com)
