How good is your eyeball?

Hot on the topic of sketching – ‘eyeballing’ is one of the essential traits needed to product good sketches. It’s the ability to accurately place where a point or a line should be by imaginarily-visualizing them: finding a midpoint; the bisecting angle; drawing parallel lines, etc. Without good ‘eyeballs’ it is horribly difficult to get an accurate sketch out.

So, test yourself right here with a series of exercises to determine how good your visualization skills really are (the lower the better).

I got a 3.82 (quite a few bad judgments on my second round 😦 – don’t lose concentration!):

    Cool app. I was able to get a 3.06. I found the angle bisection to be the easiest and the triangle center to be the hardest.

    Wow. Haha, got a 2.92, had a hard time with the bisection and the equidistant-to-edges one!

    So much for all that daily AutoCAD at work….
