Engineering Drawing

Engineering drawing is a language by which labourers in a factory communicates with engineers. Labourers don’t understand the design works behind a layout drawing. They can read the drawings well and thus can come to know what they have to do.

Civil engineers co ordinate with other departments like mechanical and electrical engineers for knowing the loads of the building and the for making the layout drawing.

Engineers thus make the layout drawing. Then, they make manufacturing drawing. Seeing the manufacturing drawing, labourers can manufacture the building.

There are some rules and procedures which are to be followed while making an engineering drawing.

Differences between Artistic Drawing and Engineering Drawing

Lines and Dimensioning

Different Types of Lines

Each line has different purpose. Primarily, there are 7 types of lines. These are:

  • Continuous Thick

For visible outlines and visible edges, we use this line.

  • Continuous Thin

For projection lines, dimension lines, leader, extension lines, etc., we use continuous thick line.

  • Chained Thin

For center lines and line of symmetry, we use chained thin line.

  • Dashed Thin

For indicating hidden lines and hidden edges, we use dashed thin line.

  • Thick-Thin-Thick

For indicating the cutting planes, we use thick-thin-thick line.

  • Continuous thin (Curved)

        Limits of partial or interrupted views and sections,   

        if the limit is not a chain thin line

  • Continuous thin zigzags (straight)

For indicating long break lines, continuous thin zigzag is used.

Dimensioning Procedure

We can indicate dimensioning in two different ways:

Unidirectional System

In this system:

Students should write the dimension text in the middle of the dimension line.

They should erase the middle portion of the dimension line for writing the dimension text.

Aligned System

In this system:

Students should write the dimension text above the dimension line.

They should not erase the dimension line.

Dimensions may be read from bottom or right hand edges.

Rules in Dimensioning

  • Students should use closed and filled arrows.
  • The ratio of length and width of an arrowhead should be 3:1.
  • The extension line should be a little away from the outline of the object.
  • Dimension lines should not cut or overlap each other.
  • Dimension text should not touch the dimension line.
  • It should not touch the outline of the object and should be placed in the middle of the dimension line.
  • Hatch lines make 450 angle to the reference line.
  • If in any dimension, unit is not mentioned; it means that unit is in milimeter.

The multiple-choice questions mentioned here are the basic questions on the Lines and Dimensioning Procedure. This will help you in clearing the viva during semester examination. Thank you. Best wishes.

I love to educate myself. When I educate the little ones, I can educate myself in a better way. So I choose to educate all students with the help of advanced technology and that is by opening a site. Though by profession I am working in an MNC as a Mechanical Engineer, I love to educate from the beginning to build a career as a student.
