Calculating Isometric Offsets

Isometric Dimensioning & Labeling

Institute of Piping Engineering & Building

An isometric drawing is a type of pictorial drawing in which three sides of

an object can be seen in one view.

Its popular within the process piping industry because it can be laid out

and drawn with ease and portrays the object in a realistic view.

Sometimes it is used in lieu of plans and elevations but typically it is

used to supplement the plan drawings

Isometrics are used as fabrication & shop drawings for pipe run

fabrication

Isometrics also provide a drafter with the ability to calculate angular

offsets in the pipe run.

Isometric Layout:

Non-isometric lines: lines NOT

parallel to the isometric lines

these lines cannot be measured

You will use the isometric axis on ALL of your isometric drawings!

the pipe match the three isometric axis lines

Building Services - www.ipebs.in

Scale:

however, pipe lengths should be shown proportionately

many companies draw isometrics on B-size paper (11 x 17)

which is a limited space so sometimes proportion may be sacrificed

because of the lack of scale in an isometric, its IMPORTANT that

the written dimensions are accurate

location and direction help to properly orient the isometric drawing

a north arrow give direction and should ALWAYS point to the upper-right

corner of the paper

structural reference points that provide location can be shown on

isometric

dimensions MUST always be given to points of reference; such as

structures, existing equipmentetc

coordinates should also be shown on the isometric drawing

Building Services - www.ipebs.in

Isometric planes:

with three planes, there are a number of ways for valves and

fitting to be shown

shows the planes and possible positions of fittings & valves

remember that if pipes or features are parallel in the piping

layout, they theyll be parallel in the isometric view

Building Services - www.ipebs.in

Fitting symbols and orientation:

when orienting fittings and Not ice how the flow of the

valves its important to know that isometric is continuous

and provides a clear

there are good methods and picture of the pipe run

poor methods in this orientation

process

the general rule for producing

an isometric using GOOD

techniques, is to draw the fittings

so they are parallel to the last

direction change or branch in

the pipe

rule leads to a chaotic

looking isometric it

doesnt look professional

Building Services - www.ipebs.in

fittings are drawn the same shape as they

appear on the plan & elevation drawings

EXCEPT theyre at an isometric angle

elbows can be drawn a couple of ways

check with company standards

In this class we will use square corner

elbows

not only is this the most typical

method used, but its also quicker to Curved Elbow Representation

draw.

Connected piping:

showing existing piping

branches of the pipe run or continuations are

placed on other drawings typically shown as

short portion of dashed line on main pipe run

usually a note indicates he name or

specification of the branch line

existing piping is sometimes shown using

double line method or dashed lines in this

class we will use dashed lines

either method is useful in that it

distinguishes new pipe from existing piping

Notice spec change between continuation and note providing

new and existing pipe & note reference drawing information.

Isometric drawing techniques:

set up grid, snap, isometric plane orientation, border and

title block, BOM, text styles & dimension settings

Develop library of isometric symbols

valves, fittings, instruments, equipment common

drawing components

Create dimension styles in all three isometric planes

Construct menus that you can pick symbols from

Drawing Isometric Offsets:

Offset:

indicates that a piece of pipe is shifted from one line of direction to another

is done with a fitting (typically a 45elbow)

one of the few times you might have artistic license in making a piping

drawing

Horizontal offsets:

elbow running form southeast to

northwest technically correct, it would

look like a vertical line to prevent

confusion, the offset is drawn 22

from vertical to give the illusion of the

angle.

Building Services - www.ipebs.in

Thats why many companies use a squaring-in plane

within the plane of the offset

Vertical Offsets:

These offsets can get just as confusing as the horizontal offsets. Using the same

techniques; 22 and the squaring in planes help remedy the visualization

of these offsets as well.

confusing qualities inherent to isometric piping drawings and take

measures to ensure the drawings are easily understood.

Calculating Isometric Offsets

Although you can get away with an educated guess as to making an angular offset

easy to see when laying out an isometric, you cant make a guess-ti-mate when it

comes to determining pipe lengths and angles.

So, pull out the old calculator, paper, pencil & a BIG eraser and lets get started.

The basic calculations any pipe drafter uses are those involving

trigonometry and right angles.

with a way to deal with calculations involving right angles

and its called the anyone? . Anyone???

Pythagorean Theorem

with right angle triangles the square of the hypotenuse is

equal to the sum of the squares of the two sides.

c = a + b

Building Services - www.ipebs.in

Example: Pythagorean Theorem (p. 223)

1. Start off with whats given or what you can determine

from the pipe drawing itself.

a) We are given an 45angle rise, that clues us in

on the fact that the two sides of our triangle are

going to be the same length

b) By doing simple subtraction, we can come up

with the length for side B: 11-9 6-3 = 5-6

OR you can subtract the elevations given

and get the same dimension for side A.

c) Since B = A: side A = 5 -6 as well.

2. Now all you have to do is plug the

numbers into your formula:

a) c = (5 -6 ) + (5 -6 )

FYI: 5 -6 = 5.0 ft. c) c = 30.4792 + 30.4792

6 = 6/12 = .5 in. d) c = 60.9584

= .25/12 = .0208 in. e) c = 60.9584

= 5.5208 ft.

f) c = 7.8075

g) c = 7 -9 11/16

SMOLEYS TABLES:

Before there were calculators there was Constantine K. Smoley, an

educator and civil engineer.

Smoley published a book in 1901 that became the bible for any

professional (engineers and architects) or student that needed to be

able to calculate squares, square roots, logarithms & trig functions.

problem:

1. We would have flipped through the pages to find 5

2. Then we would look for 6 column heading

3. Then in the far left column we would have looked

down to find the row labeled

4. At the intersection of the Square column under 6

and the Row, wed find the square for 5-6

given in decimal form 30.4796

a) c = 30.4796 + 30.4796

b) c = 60.9592

c) c = 60.9592

d) c = 7.8076

TRIG function formulas:

There are three basic trig function formulas that are frequently used in piping:

SIN = SO/HYP

COS = SA/HYP

TAN = SO/SA

When angle A is used, a is the side opposite (SO) and b is the side adjacent (SA).

When angle B is used, a is the side adjacent (SA) and b is the side opposite (SO).

solving angles and lengths in piping

offsets.

Solving Compound Angles:

When piping has to be snaked through equipment, steel, conduit and other pipe,

the pipe may be rolled along with the offset. This type of piping design is called a

rolling offset and forms a compound angle.

SET: Depth of offset

ROLL: Breadth of offset

TRAVEL: True length of pipe through offset

provides in depth detail of solving for lengths of

pipe and angles itll come in handy with some

assignments!

Isometric Dimensioning & Labeling

DIMENSIONING PRACTICES:

centerline at the intersection point

2. Try to keep all dimensions outside the

piping view when possible

3. Dimensions should ALWAYS be shown

between points in the same plane

4. One of the extension lines of the

dimension should be a centerline of the

run of pipe

5. Vertical lines of text should always be

parallel with extension lines

Building Services - www.ipebs.in

Isometric lettering:

drawings:

1. If the pipes vertical, the lettering should

be written vertically and at 30angle

2. If pipe is in horizontal plane, the lettering

will appear as if it is lying down and will be

oriented on both 30angles

3. Dimensions appear to be lying down if the

pipe is horizontal or standing on end if the

pipe is vertical.
