Abstract: A teaching technique for presenting visualization problems is discussed which requires students to generate both multiview (orthographic) and pictorial views of simple to complex objects from symbolic information. The technique makes use of an expanded coded plan or base design method for describing objects in space, and transcends the traditional isometric/orthographic, orthographic/isometric translation exercises. The technique can be used in traditional or CAD-based engineering design graphics courses and can be implemented using either sketching or instrument construction methods.

Keywords: Visualization, Coded plan, Teaching techniques, Geometric modeling, Sketching, Mental rotation
