Crossing the line with the pyramid
In this video tutorial we will construct the intersection of a straight line and a pyramid. Recently we built the intersection of polyhedra (pyramids and prisms), so with the intersection of the straight line and the pyramid, you should not have any difficulties.
- The height of the pyramid is 70 mm.
- The diameter of the auxiliary circle is 60 mm.
- Direct general position.
The solution of problems on descriptive geometry I produce in the automated design system AutoCAD and AutoCAD 3D. This training will allow you to develop spatial thinking and consolidate the possession of AutoCAD.
Algorithm for solving the problem of intersection of a line and a pyramid
- We draw through the line of general position the front-projecting plane.
- We construct the lines of intersection of the pyramid with the front-projecting plane.
- We mark the intersection points of the projections of the line with the projections of the intersection lines.
- Determine the visibility of the intersection of the line with the pyramid.
