necessary, make a full-sized supplementary layout
Draw a rectangular box (view B).
Dimension each point horizontally and vertically as shown (view C).
Transfer the dimensional values to the isometric axis as shown (view D).
Using a French curve as a guide, draw in the isometric arc (view E).
Step 6. Transfer the points to the back surface and, again using a French curve as
a guide, draw in the isometric arc (view F).
Step 7. Erase all excess lines and smudges, check your work, draw in the remaining
lines of the object lightly at first, then darken them to their final color and
