DIMENSIONING. ‘maybe placedwithinthe view, unlessthe drawingbecomes very clear by doing so, for example, the dimension line which indicates 35mm as shown in Fig.5,2. The dimension lines should be placed atleast 10mm away from the outline and all other parallel dimension lines should be placed atleast amm part, or more ifthe space permits: For example, in Fig.5.2 the distance between the outline and the frst dimension line is 10mm, and the distance between the first dimension line and the second dimension line is &mm. Projection or Extension Line ‘A projection or anextension line, isa thin continuous line ‘of Type, Table 3.2, Page 14, drawn without leavinga gap from the outline to be dimensioned as shown in Fig.5.1, 5.2, and 5.3, Itisdrawn perpendiculartothe outline which stobedimensioned as shown in Fig.5.1 and 5.2, where necessary, however, it may bbe drawn obliquely, but parallel to each other as shown in Fig.5.3. The projection lines should extend slightly beyond the dimension line. Construction Line ‘A construction line isa thin continuous line of Type B, Table 3.2, Page 14, drawn to indicate the dimension line. The Construction lines are extended slightly beyond the point of intersection as shown in Fig. 54 Arrowheads ‘Arrowheads are used to terminate a dimension line. Its recommended that the barbs ofthe arrowhead form an included angle of minimum of 15° or more to produce an. arrowhead of length at least three times the width as shown in Fig.5.5 A. The arrowheads may be open as shown in Fig.5.5B, or closed as shown in Fig.5.5C, or closed and illed in as shown in Fig. 5.50. (Open type of arrowheads are suitable for pencil drawings while closed and filled in ones are suitable for ink drawings. ory oF ssw sir0 9" noha Bf} ale aaeg Dimension tine Ves?
