# How to draw a cylinder in the isometric view

The cylinder - a geometric body bounded by two parallel planes intersecting the cylindrical surface. This form entered into many spheres of human activity: in mechanical cylinder is one of the main parts of the piston engine, used in the culinary industry tools cylindrical shape, even in fashion were relevant hats - cylinders.

## Instruction how to draw an isometric view of a cylinder

Step 1:

Carefully draw a vertical axis on the drawing sheet. Do drawings using the Office tools - ruler, pencil, compass, eraser.

Step 2:

Perpendicular to the constructed line draw two horizontal lines, at the appropriate height of the cylinder a distance, so that these lines are divided in half vertically.

Step 3:

Mark the point of horizontal lines at a distance equal to the width of the cylinder. Their coordinates on the top and bottom line must be the same, or even build cylinder will not work.

Step 4:

Mark the vertical line still four points from the top and from the reduced horizontal segment between these points along the length must match the width of the base of the cylinder opening. The points lying on the horizontal axis, draw a "parenthesis." Connect the ends of these brackets with the points on the vertical line. These are the bases of the cylinder circumference.

Step 5:

Drop a perpendicular from the extreme points of the upper horizontal line to the extreme points of the bottom. The resulting figure is the figure we fit the cylinder. In order to complete the drawing view delete all auxiliary lines with a rubber eraser. Reasons must be symmetrical in relation to each other. Do not use in the construction of pens, markers, crayons, as in the case of incorrect calculations will have to start work again. Follow all the pencil drawings, so that you can make adjustments in the course of construction. This method - the most simplified variant of construction of the cylinder, and this figure is drawn from a box.
