I’ve told you in MEC222 lectures that engineer’s don’t use Oblique Views, and that’s true. But it’s also nice to see that such views are relevant in a number of industries. Here’s an instance of how Oblique Views are used in industry. This is part of a large poster on the wall of a custom door manufacturer in the GTA.
An Oblique View gives a “true view” of the profile (the cross-section) of the item (in this case, baseboards) which is important for installers. It also provides a sense of the actual appearance of the outward facing side, which is important for the customer.
