52. Ruler: Perspective Array Ruler

From the Perspective Array Ruler in the Ruler tool you can render accurately drawngs from a single-point perspective, two-point perspective, and three-point perspective. You can slo combine with the Straight Ruler, Circular Ruler, and Radial Ruler to render backgrounds. Here I have tired to create an apartment block.

From the ①Ruler function select the ②Perspective Array Ruler. The initial number of fractals is set to 3 for each Division, but, apart from the Phase slider, set all ③Divisions to 1.

Since the cube we are drawing is facing left, selecting the ①Face Selection button under the ruler functions and setting to facing right allows us to cleanly trace the cube we have created.

Return to the Canvas screen and drag the ①Vertex Thumb and ②Face Thumb to determine the size, position and orientation of your cube. When you have arranged your cube to your satisfaction, tap the ③Lock button.

Open the ①Ruler tooland select the②Radial Ruler.

Drag the ①Center Thumb to match the vanishing point.

Since it is a two-point perspective, we need to match it to two vanishing points. When we want to add a Radial Ruler, from the ①Ruler Tool we select the ②Radial Ruler. By tapping ③Add Radial Ruler we are able to match to the second vanishing point.

Drag the ①Center Thumb to match the second vanishing point.

When you have positioned the radial mesh correctly, from the ①Ruler tool select the ②Straight Ruler.

Drag the ①Rotation Thumb and position it vertically.

Along the line of the Perspective Array Ruler we now draw a line using the the ①Radial Ruler.

From the ①Ruler tool select the ②Radial Ruler, and choose ③Select Radial Ruler.

When you choose the Select Radial Ruler option it will look something like this and so by selecting ①arrow you can switch between the two.

When we have drawn a cube, from the①Ruler tool we select the ②Perspective Array Ruler and drag the ③Division Y, Division Z sliders right to determine the number of rooms. This time, we have set Y:5, Z:5.

We will now use the Radial Ruler and Straight Ruler to draw a window in the orange work cell.

This window is duplicated in the grid array, so it is easy to draw many windows.

Next we will draw a veranda. Leaving the work surface as it is, from the ①Ruler toll select the ②Perspective Array Ruler and drag the ③Phase slider right to -9.0% .

In the orange work cell use the Radial and Straight Ruler to draw a fence.

We will now draw the veranda’s fence. Set ①Face Selection button to front face.

From the ①Ruler tool select the ②Perspective Array Ruler and set ③Phase to -1.0%. Now draw a horizontal fence in the orange work cell.

The Radial Ruler and the Straight Ruler were used to draw the fence.

This is useful when drawing a building using perspective.
