# What is 1st and 3rd angle projection?

## What is 1st and 3rd angle projection?

To get the first angle projection, the object is placed in the first quadrant meaning it’s placed between the plane of projection and the observer. For the third angle projection, the object is placed below and behind the viewing planes meaning the plane of projection is between the observer and the object.

**Why do we use 1st and 3rd angle projection?**

We consider that horizontal plane rotates in clockwise direction after having projection on it. that’s why we use 1st angle and 3rd angle projection. because only in this two quadrants we will get the both views after clockwise rotation of horizontal plane.

**What is 3rd angle projection?**

3rd Angle project is where the 3D object is seen to be in the 3rd quadrant. It is positioned below and behind the viewing planes, the planes are transparent, and each view is pulled onto the plane closest to it. The front plane of projection is seen to be between the observer and the object.

### Where is 1st angle projection used?

First angle projection is widely used in India and European countries. The object is placed between the observer and projection planes. The plane of projection is taken solid in 1st angle projection. 2.

**What is a first angle projection?**

First-angle projection: In this type of projection, the object is imagined to be in the first quadrant. Again, as the observer is normally supposed to look from the right side of the quadrant to obtain the front view, in this method, the projection plane comes in between the observer and the object.

**Which projection is used in India?**

polyconic projection

In India, the polyconic projection is commonly used by Survey of India (SOI). All SOI toposheets are in the polyconic projection. Map Scale is the ratio of distances on map to distances to on the surface of the earth. It is specified in verbal, numeric or graphical form on all standard maps.

## How do you read 1st and 3rd angle drawings?

The difference between first and third angle projection is in the position of the plan, front and side views. In third angle, what you see from the right would be drawn on the right. In first angle, the view from the right would be projected through and drawn on the left.

**How do you draw a 3rd angle projection?**

When using third angle projection to compile a diagram of the three views, we first draw the most prevalent side of the object as the front view. The top view is positioned directly above the front view and for the side view, we generally position the right side view on the right of the front view.

**What is first angle projection example?**

Below is an example of First Angle projection. Opposite is a simple L-shape, drawn in three dimensions. The front, side and plan views have drawn around the 3D shape. Now imagine standing directly in front of the L-shape, the drawing opposite shows exactly what you would see.

### Who uses 3rd angle Projection?

The US, Canada, Japan and Australia are the only other regions that typically use 3rd Angle projection as standard. 3rd Angle project is where the 3D object is seen to be in the 3rd quadrant.

**Which symbol represent the 1st angle projection?**

cone

Drawing Projection Key Points: Large end of the cone nearest to the top view indicates the symbol for first angle projection. Small end of the cone nearest to the top view indicates the symbol for third angle projection.

**What is difference between 1st angle and 3rd angle projection?**

Third Angle VS First Angle. Description: Both third angle and first angle projection display the standard three orthographic views of a part or assembly. The key difference between third angle and first angle is the layout of the part on the sheet. Note: Changing the projection in the sheet properties will not update already inserted model views.

## Which countries use third angle projection?

First Angle Projection is commonly used in all countries other than United States. The Indian Standard Institution (ISI) recommend the use of First Angle Projection method now in all the institutions. Third Angle Projection is commonly used in United States of America.

**What is meant by first angle projection?**

First angle projection is one of the methods used for orthographic projection drawings and is approved internationally except the United States. In this projection method, the object is placed in the first quadrant and is positioned in front of the vertical plane and above the horizontal plane.

**Why do we use third angle projection?**

First of all, we use first angle and third angle projection because it is assumed that the Horizontal plane is rotated CLOCKWISE to bring them in the same plane (for drawing purpose) and if we use second or fourth angle projection , then the Horizontal and vertical views will overlap , creating confusions in their drawn views.
