1.2.1 Two series of successive format sizes are

,Jbtained by halving along the length or doubling
along the width. The areas of the two sizes are in the
ratio 1 : 2 (see Fig. 1.I ),



1.3 Designation of Sizes

ferred sizes of the trimmed sheets as selected from
the main ISO-A Series are given in Table 1 .l.

1.3.2 Speciul Elonguted Sizes (Second Choice) -

When a sheet of greater length is needed, one of the
sizes in Table 1.2 should be used. These sizes are
obtained by extending the shorter sides of a format
of the ISO-A series to lengths that are multiples of
the shorter sides of the chosen basic format.

9i2.1.1 Hatching is generally used to show areas

of reproduction that are to be used. The simplest form of hatching is usually

adequate for the purpose, and may be based upon

9.2.4 Notes on Sections The general rules for the arrangement of

views (see 8.2.2) apply equally when drawing
sections. Where the location of a single cutting

plane is obvious, no indication of its position or
identification is required (see Fig. 9.10 and 9.21).

FIG. 9.12 The designations on the referenced

sections shall be placed either immediately below or

the references shall be placed in the same way. No
other indication is necessary. In certain cases, the parts located

Q.5 Views of Symmetrical Parts

9,351 To save time and space, symmetrical

objects may be drawn as a fraction of the whole
(see Fig. 9.35 to 9.38).

FIG.938 The line of symmetry is identified at

its ends by two thin short parallel lines drawn dt right
angles to it (see Fig. 9.35, 9.36 and 9.38).

FIG. 9.35 Another method is to show the lines representing,

the object extending a little beyond the line ofI
symmetry (see Fig. 9.37). In this case, the short L
parallel lines may be omitted.

NOTE - fn the application of this practice, it is essential

that due care is taken to avoid loss of understanding of
the drawing.

9.3.6 Interrupted Views - In order to save space,
it is permissible to show only those portions of a long
object which are sufficient for its definition. The
limits of parts retained are shown,as for partial views
(see 8.2.6), and the portions are drawn close to each
other (see Fig. 9.39 and 9.40).

examples, the rules for representation of ?hreaded
parts, springs, gears and common-features on
technical drawings.

10.2 Conventional Representation of Threaded

Parts - The method of simplified representation of
threaded parts is independent of type of screw thread
applied. The type of screw thread and its dlmerGons FIG. 10.3
are to be indicated by means of standard designations.

10.2.1 Conventional Method of Representation

IQ.2.1.1 Visible screw threads - For visible

screw threads, the crests of threads should be defined
by a continuous thick line (type A), and the roots of
threads by a continuous thin line (type B) (see
Fig. 10.1 to 10.4). It is recommended that the space
between .lines representing the major and minor
diametres of the thread be as close as possible to the
correct depth ofthread, but in all cases this spacing
shall not be less than twice the thickness of the thick
line or 0.7 mm whichever is larger.
FIG. 10.4

On an end view of a hidden screw thread, the

thread roots should be represented by a portion of a
circle, drawn with a dashed line (type E or F, but

11.4.2 Dimensioning From a Common Feature This method of dimensioning is used

where a number. of dimensions of the same direction

relate to a common origin.

FIG. 11.28 Dimensioning from a common feature

may be executed as parallel dimensioning or as
superimposed running dimensioning.

\o s Parallel dimensioning is the placement
of a number of single dimension lines parallel one to
another and spaced out so that the dimensional
vahre can easily be added in (see Fig. 11.33 and
FIG. 11.29 11.41).

simplified parallel dimensioning and may be used no risk of confusion, either :

projection are:

Drafting machines, isometric grid (see Fig. 17.4).

17.2.2 For the preparation of drawings in pipe-

work construction it is also customary to use
computer-controlled curve plotters. When a drafting
machine is used without a grid,it is advisable to work
with the following detent settings: FIG. 17.2
