Projections of Points and Lines : Theory of Projections (Reference, Planes and Auxiliary Planes, First and Third Angle Method of projections), Projections of point only in First and Third Quadrant with all possible positions.
Projections of lines : Projections of lines [ by First angle Method of projections only] inclined to horizontal plane , frontal plane and both i.e. oblique lines , on reference and auxiliary planes. True length of a line by rotation of view and rotation of plane methods, traces of lines [To locate only H.T. and V.T.] [ Note : No application oriented questions]
Projection of planes: Projection of planes on reference and auxiliary planes [by First Angle Method of projections only]. Projections of planes [ Triangle - All Cases, Quadrilateral, Pentagon , Hexagon and Circle] by reference and auxiliary plane methods , Planes inclined to horizontal reference plane, frontal reference plane and oblique plane. True shape of a Plane, Angles made by the plane with the principle reference planes [ Note : No combination of planes and no HT,VT of planes].
