Parallel Line Pattern Development

# 18 Oblique Tee

Note: This is the only tee which requires a full front elevation view.

- Draw a full front and end .
- Draw on the tee in both views and divide into 6 equal parts (see Divide a Circle Into 12 Equal Parts). Include all labeling.
- Draw in the from the profile divisions.
- Where the element lines hit the pipe in the end view, project them into the front view.
- Following the labeling, draw in the
**line**in the front view. - Draw the tee to the right and divide it into 12 equal parts (see Divide a Line Using a Ruler on an Angle). Label to match the elevation views.
- Using your compass, transfer the corresponding points from the front elevation view to the stretch-out.
**Note: The element lines cannot be projected in this case because the stretch-out is not perpendicular to the tee. In the case of a 90° tee, it is at a right angle to the stretch-out. To be able to project an oblique tee, the stretch-out must be draw at an angle equal to the tee angle. This usually takes too much room to justify doing so.** - Use a flexible curve to join the points and complete the pattern
