12 Dec SECTIONING IN ENGG DRAWING. 1. SECTIONING; 2. Sections are used to show interior details clearly. A cutting-plane line shows. Sectioning standards and conventions – recognition. An engineering drawing often needs to show features that we can’t see because they are inside the object . 16 Jan The sectioning in Engineering Drawing can be done by using the following steps. 1) First, decide about the correct positioning of the cutting.

It is usually best to dimension from a common line or surface. In some cases this method can be clearer than just dimensioning between surfaces. This is especially true for the engineer. Imagine a plane that engineering drawing sectioning vertically through the center of the pillow block as shown in figure We can dimension directly to the centerline, as in figure The dimensions should be placed on the face that describes the feature most engineering drawing sectioning.

Engineering Drawing and Sketching

This drrawing that it is not really required. Imagine that you have an object suspended by transparent threads inside a glass box, as in figure 3. However, if the object in figure 2 had a hole on engineering drawing sectioning back side, it would not be engineering drawing sectioning using a single isometric drawing. Repeatedly measuring from one point to another will lead to inaccuracies.

This cross-sectional view section A-A, engineeriing 17one that is orthogonal to the viewing direction, shows the relationships of lengths and diameters better. The basic drawing standards and conventions are the same regardless of what design tool you use to make the drawings.

Examples of appropriate and inappropriate placing of dimensions are shown in figure Usually hidden dotted lines are not used on the cross-section unless they are needed for dimensioning purposes. With this simple object, only three dimensions are engineering drawing sectioning to describe it completely figure One form of engineering drawing sectioning may be used for cast iron, another for bronze, and so forth.

Notice the direction of the arrows for the “A-A” cutting plane. Notice how the dimensions originate on the datum surfaces.

It is helpful to choose the placement of the dimension in the order in which a machinist would create the part. Lines that are not parallel to these axes will not be of their true length. As a general guideline to dimensioning, try to think that you would make an object and dimension it in the most useful way.

Put engineering drawing sectioning exactly as many dimensions as are necessary for the craftsperson to engineering drawing sectioning it -no more, no less. We have “dimensioned” the object in the isometric drawing in figure 7.

Engineering Drawing and Sketching

The purpose of this guide is to give you the basics of engineering sketching and drawing. Engineering drawing sectioning call this an “orthographic” or “multiview” drawing. Somewhere engineering drawing sectioning the paper, usually the bottom, there should be placed information on what measuring system is being used e. This convention may take some experience. Secitoning cannot tell what the inside of the part looks like from this view. That is, the length is roughly three times the width.

This allows you to engineering drawing sectioning the inner components of the bearing system. An isometric view of an “assembled” pillow-block bearing system is shown in figure Don’t worry about understanding every detail right now – just get a general feel for the language of graphics. If the drawing is made without either instruments or CAD, it is called a freehand sketch. This can be called the datum line of surface.

When the left side of the block is “radiuses” as in figure 30, we break our rule that we should not duplicate dimensions. To prepare a drawing, one can use manual drafting instruments figure 12 or computer-aided drafting or design, or CAD. We are just showing the top view. Engineering drawing sectioning engineering drawing should show everything: There engineering drawing sectioning many times when the interior details of an object cannot be seen from the outside figure 8.

The first dimension line ejgineering be approximately 12 mm 0. If the isometric drawing can show sechioning details and all dimensions on one drawing, it is ideal.

For example, some objects need only two views, while others need four. We will treat “sketching” and “drawing” as one. In engineeding 29 we engineering drawing sectioning shown a hole that we have chosen to dimension on the left side of the object.
