Title: Alphabet Of Lines


1
Alphabet Of Lines
  • The backbone of drafting

2
Introduction to the Alphabet of Lines
  • In order to understand what the drafter is trying
    to get across, you must be able to understand the
    symbols and lines he uses.
  • Each line has a definite form and line weight.

3
5 Main Line Types
  • Visible
  • Hidden
  • Center
  • Dimension
  • Extension

4
Visible Lines
  • Dark, heavy lines.
  • Show the outline and shape of an object. (SHOWS
    SHAPE)
  • Define features you can see in a particular view.

5
Hidden Lines
  • Light, narrow, short, dashed lines.
  • Shows the outline of a feature that can not be
    seen in a particular view.
  • Used to help clarify a feature, but can be
    omitted if they clutter a drawing.

6
Center Lines
  • Thin line consisting of long and short dashes.
  • Shows the center of holes, slots, paths of
    rotation, and symmetrical objects.

7
Dimension Lines
  • Dark, heavy lines.
  • Show the length, width, and height of the
    features of an object. (SHOWS SIZE)
  • Terminated with arrowheads at the end.

8
Extension Lines
  • Used to show the starting and stopping points of
    a dimension. (SHOWS LOCATION)
  • Must have at least a 1/16th space between the
    object and the extension line.

Summary
  • Now that we have discussed the 5 main line types,
    you should be able to do the following
  • 1. Identify the alphabet of lines.
  • 2. Identify where the line types are
    used.
  • 3. Produce the lines with correct spacing and
    line weight.
