Universal method to draw polygons is very popular and very legendary technique to draw different shapes like triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon etc.
Procedure:
Step 1 |
First draw a line AB of the dimension equal to the side of a polygon i.e., 50mm. |
Step 2 |
Then draw a perpendicular bisector of the line AB and draw it of sufficient length. |
Step 3 |
Draw a perpendicular line BC from B of the length equal to the line AB. |
Step 4 |
Connect the two points A & C by a straight line. i.e., AC |
Step 5 |
Draw an arc by the center B and radius equal to AB between the points A & C. |
Step 6 |
Mark the point 4 at the intersection of line ‘AC with the perpendicular bisector. |
Step 7 |
Mark the point 6 at the intersection of the arc AC with the perpendicular bisector. |
Step 8 |
Find out the midpoint of between the points 4 & 6 mark it as a point 5. |
Step 9 |
Mark points 7 & 8 at the distance equal to 4-5 or 5-6 in sequence. |
Step 10 |
Draw a triangle ABC by connecting the line AC & BC at point 6. |
Step 11 |
Draw circles by taking the points 4,5,6,7,8 as center points and divide the respective circles with the compass measurement equal to the distance of the line AB. i.e., 50mm. |
Step 12 |
Connect the divided points of respective circles in sequence with straight lines to get respective polygons. Like Square, Pentagon, Hexagon, Heptagon and Octagon. |
Step 13 |
Give the dimensions by any one method of dimensions and give the name of the components by leader lines wherever necessary. |
