Residential Building

Aim

To draw the Plan, Cross section and elevation of a single storied residential building for the given line diagram.

residential building

Data:Draw the L/S and C/S of a doubly reinforced beam for a building having following details

Where,

MD – 1.1m x 2.1m W1- 1.5m x 1.35m
D1 – 0.9m x 2.1m W2- 1.2m x 1.35m
D2 – 0.75m x 2.1m W3- 1.45m x 1.00m
PD – 0.90m x 2.1m W4- 1.05m x 1.35m
V1 – 0.60m x 0.60m W5- 2.20m x 1.35m

Software used: Autocad

Commands used:Limits, ortho, offset, line, zoom, move, trim, extend, hatch, dimension, text etc.

Procedure:

    The limits are set before starting the drawing. The lower left corner is set as default (0.0000, 0.0000). The upper right corner is changed as per our requirements.
  • By using units command, we set the types as decimal, precision as 0.0000 and units to scale as millimetres.
  • Ortho is switched off as the drawing requires use of inclined line also along with horizontal and vertical lines.
  • By using the line command, the outline of the required drawing is drawn.
  • By using the trim command, the extra lines are trimmed.
  • Lines are extended using extend command wherever necessary.
  • Donut option is used to represent the c/s of reinforcements.
  • Offset command is used to get lines at regular distance.
  • Hatching is done using hatch command.
  • Dimensions are provided and text command is also used for labelling the drawing.
  • Result:The required Plan, Cross section and elevation of a single storied residential building for the given line diagram is drawn using the software.
