CHAPTER 1 Drawing Instruments and Accessories 1.1 Introduction Engineering drawing is a two dimensional representation of three dimensional objects. In general, it provides necessary information about the shape, size, surface quality, material, manufacturing process, etc., of the object. It is the graphic language from which a trained person can visualise objects. Drawings prepared in one country may be utilised in any other country irrespective of the language spoken. Hence, engineering drawing is called the universal language of engineers. Any language to be communicative, should follow certain rules so that it conveys the same meaning to every one. Similarly, drawing practice must follow certain rules, if it is to serve as a means of communication. For this purpose, Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) adapted the International Standards on code of practice for drawing. The other foreign standards are: DIN of Germany, BS of Britain and ANSI of America. 1.2 Role of Engineering Drawing The ability to read drawing is the most important requirement of all technical people in any profession. As compared to verbal or written description, this method is brief and more clear. Some of the applications are : building drawing for civil engineers, machine drawing for mechanical engineers, circuit diagrams for electrical and electronics engineers, computer graphics for one and all. The subject in general is designed to impart the following skills. 1. Ability to read and prepare engineering drawings. 2. Ability to make free - hand sketching of objects. 3. Power to imagine, analyse and communicate, and 4. Capacity to understand other subjects: 1.3 Drawing Instrument and Aids The Instruments and other aids used in draughting work are listed below: 1. Drawing board 2. Mini draughter 3. Instrument box 4. Set squares 5. Protractor 6. Set of scales 7. French curves 8. Drawing sheets 9. Pencils 10. Templates 1.2 Textbook of Enginnering Drawing 1.3.1 Drawing Board Until recently drawing boards used are made of well seasoned softwood of about 25 mm thick with a working edge for T-square. Nowadays mini-draughters are used instead of T-squares which can be fixed on any board. The standard size of board depends on the size of drawing sheet size required. r- Drawing board Angle Drawing sheet Fig. 1.1 Mini-draughter 1.3.2 Mini-Draughter Mini-draughter consists of an angle formed by two arms with scales marked and rigidly hinged to each other (Fig. I. I ). It combines the functions ofT-square, set-squares, scales and protractor. It is used for drawing horizontal, vertical and inclined lines, parallel and perpendicular lines and for measuring lines and angles. 1.3.3 Instrument Box Instrument box contains 1. Compasses, 2. Dividers and 3. Inking pens. What is important is the position of the pencil lead with respect to the tip of the compass. It should be atleast I mm above as shown in Fig. 1.2 because the tip goes into the board for grip by 1 mm.

These are made of wood, steel or plastic (Fig.I.3). BIS recommends eight set-scales in plastic/cardboard with designations MI, M2 and so on as shown in Table 1.1 Set of scales Fig. 1.3 Set of scales Table 1.1 Set of Scales Ml M2 M3 M4 M5 M6 M7 M8 1:200 1:300 1:400 1: 1000 Scale on one edge 1:1 1:2.5 1:10 1:50 Scale on other edge 1:2 1 :5 1:20 1:100 1:500 1.600 1:800 1:2000 Note: Do not use the scales as a straight edge for drawing straight lines. These are used for drawing irregular curved lines, other than circles or arcs of circles.

First a series of points are plotted along the desired path and then the most suitable curve is made along the edge of the curve. A flexible curve consists of a lead bar inside rubber which bends conveniently to draw a smooth curve of points. through any set (a) French curves (b) Flexible curve Fig. 1.4 1.3.6 Tern plates These are aids used for drawing small features such as circles, arcs, triangular, square and other shapes and symbols used in various science and engineering fields (Fig.l.5). Fig. 1.5 Template 1.3.7 Pencils Pencils with leads of different degrees of hardness or grades are available in the market. The hardness or softness of the lead is indicated by 3H, 2H, H, HB, B, 2B, 3B, etc. The grade HB denotes medium hardness oflead used for general purpose. The hardness increases as the value of __________________ Drawing Instruments and Accessories 1.5 the numeral before the letter H increases. The lead becomes softer, as the value of the numeral before B increases (Fig.l.6). Hard Soft Fig. 1.6 Pencil Leads The selection of the grade depends on the line quality desired for the drawing. Pencils of grades H or 2H may be used for finishing a pencil drawing as these give a sharp black line. Softer grade pencils are used for sketching work. HB grade is recommended for lettering and dimensioning. Nowadays mechanical pencils are widely used in place of wooden pencils. When these are used, much of the sharpening time can be saved. The number 0.5,0.70 of the pen indicates the thickness of the line obtained with the lead and the size of the lead diameter. Micro-tip pencils with 0.5 mm thick leads with the following grades are recommended. Fig. 1.7 Mechanical Pencil HB Soft grade for Border lines, lettering and free sketching H Medium grade for Visible outlines, visible edges and boundary lines 2H Hard grade for construction lines, Dimension lines, Leader lines, Extension lines, Centre lines, Hatching lines and Hidden lines. CHAPTER 2 Lettering and Dimensioning Practices (As per BIS : SP : 46 : 2003) 2.1 Introduction Engineering drawings are prepared on standard size drawing sheets. The correct shape and size of the object can be visualised from the understanding of not only its views but also from the various types of lines used, dimensions, notes, scale etc. For uniformity, the drawings must be drawn as per certain standard practice. This chapter deals with the drawing practices as recommended by Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) SP: 46:2003. These are adapted from what is followed by International Standards Organisation (ISO). 2.2 Drawing Sheet The standard drawing sheet sizes are arrived at on the basic Principal of x: y = 1 : -..12 and xy = 1 where x and yare the sides of the sheet. For example AO, having a surface area of 1 Sq.m; x = 841 rom and y = 1189 mm. The successive sizes are obtained by either by halving along the length or.doubling the width, the area being in the ratio 1 : 2. Designation of sizes is given in Fig.2.l and their sizes are given in Table 2.1. For class work use of A2 size drawing sheet is preferred. Table 2.1 Dimension, mm Designation Trimmed size 841 x 1189 AO A1 594 x 841 A2 420 x 594 A3 297 x 420 A4 210 x 297 Fig. 2.1 Drawing Sheet Formats 2.2 Textbook of Enginnering Drawing 2.2.1 Title Block The title block should lie within the drawing space at the bottom right hand comer of the sheet. The title block can have a maximum length of 170 mm providing the following information. 1. Title of the drawing. 2. Drawing number. 3. Scale. 4. Symbol denoting the method of projection. 5. Name of the firm, and 6. Initials of staff who have designed, checked and approved. The title block used on shop floor and one suggested for students class work are shown in Fig.2.2. 170 ..

Each line has a defmite meaning and sense toconvey. IS 10714 (Pint 20): 2001 (General principles of presentation on technical drawings) and SP 46:2003 specify the following types oflines and their applications: • Visible Outlines, Visible .Edges : Type 01.2 (Continuous wide lines) The lines drawn to represent the visible outlines/ visible edges / surface boundary lines of objects should be outstanding in appearance. • Dimension Lines: Type 01.1 (Continuous narrow Lines) Dimension Lines are drawn to mark dimension. • Extension Lines: Type 01.1 (Continuous narrow Lines) • There are extended slightly beyond the respective dimension lines. __________________ Lettering and Dimensioning Practices 2.5 • Construction Lines: Type 01.1 (Continuous narrow Lines) Construction Lines are drawn for constructing drawings and should not be erased after of the drawing. completion • Hatching / Section Lines: Type 01.1 (Continuous Narrow Lines) Hatching Lines are drawn for the sectioned portion of an object. These are drawn inclined at an angle of 45° to the axis or to the main outline of the section. • Guide Lines: Type 01.1 (Continuous Narrow Lines) Guide Lines are drawn for lettering and should not be erased after lettering. • Break Lines: Type 01.1 (Continuous Narrow Freehand Lines) Wavy continuous narrow line drawn freehand is used to represent bre of an object. • Break Lines : Type 01.1 (Continuous Narrow Lines With Zigzags) Straight continuous arrow line with zigzags is used to represent break of an object. • Dashed Narrow Lines: Type 02.1 (Dashed Narrow Lines) Hidden edges / Hidden outlines of objects are shown by dashed lines of short dashes of equal lengths of about 3 mm, spaced at equal distances of about 1 mm. the points of intersection of these lines with the outlines / another hidden line should be clearly shown. • Center Lines: Type 04.1 (Long-Dashed Dotted Narrow Lines) Center Lines are draWn at the center of the drawings symmetrical about an axis or both the axes. These are extended by a short distance beyond the outline of the drawing. • " Cutting Plane Lines: Type 04.1 and Type 04.2 Cutting Plane Line is drawn to show the location of a cutting plane. It is long-dashed dotted narrow line, made wide at the ends, bends and change of direction. The direction of viewing is shown by means of arrows resting on the cutting plane line. • Border Lines Border Lines are continuous wide lines of minimum thickness 0.7 mm Fig. 2.5 Types of Lines 2.6 Textbook of Enginnering Drawing ..c Fig. 2.6 Understanding the various types oflines used in drawing (i.e.,) their thickness, style of construction and appearance as per BIS and following them meticulously may be considered as the foundation of good drawing skills. Table 2.2 shows various types oflines with the recommended applications. Table 2.2 Types of Lines and their applications (IS 10714 (Part 20): 2001) and BIS: SP46 : 2003.

Line widths (IS 10714 : 2001) Line width means line thickness. Choose line widths according to the size of the drawing from the following range: 0.13,0.18, 0.25, 0.35, 0.5, 0.7 and 1 mm. BIS recommends two line widths on a drawing. Ratio between the thin and thick lines on a drawing shall not be less than 1 : 2. __________________ Lettering and Dimensioning Practices 2.7 Precedence of Lines 1. When a Visible Line coincide with a Hidden Line or Center Line, draw the Visible Line. Also, extend the Center Line beyond the outlines of the view. 2. When a Hidden Line coincides with a Center Line, draw the Hidden Line. 3. When a Visible Line coincides with a Cutting Plane, draw the Visible Line. 4. When a Center line coincides with a Cutting Plane, draw the Center Line and show the Cutting Plane line outside the outlines of the view at the ends of the Center Line by thick dashes. 2.3 LETTERING IS 9609 (PART 0) : 2001 AND SP 46 : 2003 Lettering is defined as writing of titles, sub-titles, dimensions, etc., on a drawing. 2.3.1 Importance of Lettering To undertake production work of an engineering components as per the drawing, the size and other details are indicated on the drawing. This is done in the fonn of notes and dimensions. Main Features of Lettering are legibility, unifonnity and rapidity of execution. Use of drawing instruments for lettering consumes more time. Lettering should be done freehand with speed. Practice accompanied by continuous efforts would improve the lettering skill and style. Poor lettering mars the appearance of an otherwise good drawing. BIS and ISO Conventions IS 9609 (Part 0) : 2001 and SP 46 : 2003 (Lettering for technical drawings) specifY lettering in technical product documentation. This BIS standard is based on ISO 3098-0: 1997. 2.3.2 Single Stroke Letters The word single-stroke should not be taken to mean that the lettering should be made in one stroke without lifting the pencil. It means that the thickness of the letter should be unifonn as if it is obtained in one stroke of the pencil. 2.3.3 Types of Single Stroke Letters 0 1. Lettering Type A: (i) Vertical and (ii) Sloped (t 75 to the horizontal) 0 2. Lettering Type B : (i) Vertical and (ii) Sloped (at 75 to the horizontal) Type B Preferred In Type A, height of the capital letter is divided into 14 equal parts, while in Type B, height of the capital letter is divided into 10 equal parts. Type B is preferred for easy and fast execution, because of the division of height into 10 equal parts. Vertical Letters Preferred Vertical letters are preferred for easy and fast execution, instead of sloped letters. 2.8 Textbook of Enginnering Drawing Note: Lettering in drawing should be in CAPITALS (i.e., Upper-case letters). Lower-case (small) letters are used for abbreviations like mm, cm, etc. 2.3.4 Size of Letters • Size of Letters is measured by the height h of the CAPITAL letters as well as numerals. • Standard heights for CAPITAL letters and numerals recommended by BIS are given below : 1.8, 2.5, 3.5, 5, 6, 10, 14 and 20 mm Note: Size of the letters may be selected based upon the size of drawing. Guide Lines In order to obtain correct and uniform height ofletters and numerals, guide lines are drawn, using 2H pencil with light pressure. HB grade conical end pencil is used for lettering. 2.3.5 Procedure for Lettering 1. Thin horizontal guide lines are drawn first at a distance ' h' apart. 2. Lettering Technique: Horizontal lines of the letters are drawn from left to right. Vertical, inclined and curved lines are drawn from top to bottom. 3. After lettering has been completed, the guidelines are not erased. 2.3.6 Dimensioning of Type B Letters (Figs 2.5 and 2.6) BIS denotes the characteristics of lettering as : h (height of capita) letters), c (height of lower-case letters), i c (tail of lower-case letters), 2 c (stem of lower-case letters), 3 a (spacing between characters), b & b (spacing between baselines), l 2 e (spacing between words) and d (line thickness), Table 2.3 Lettering Proportions Recommended Size (height h) of Letters I Numerals Main Title 5 mm, 7 mm, 10 mm Sub-Titles 3.5 mm, 5 mm Dimensions, Notes, etc. 2.5 mm, 3.5 mm, 5 mm ___________________ Lettering and Dimensioning Practices 2.9 2.3.7 Lettering practice Practice oflettering capital and lower case letters and numerals of type B are shown in Figs.2.7 and 2.8. 0 Base line Base line .D '" £ Base line Base line Fig. 2.7 Lettering Fig. 2.8 Vertical Lettering The following are some of the guide lines for lettering (Fig 2.9 & 2.10) 1. Drawing numbers, title block and letters denoting cutting planes, sections are written in 10 mrn size. 2. Drawing title is written in 7 mm size. 3. Hatching, sub-titles, materials, dimensions, notes, etc., are written in 3.5 mm size. 4. Space between lines = h. 5. Space between words may be equal to the width of alphabet M or 3/5 h. 2.10 Textbook of Enginnering Drawing_____ _ Fig. 2.9 Inclined Lettering 6. Space between letters should be approximately equal to 115 h. Poor spacing will affect the visual effect. 7. The spacing between two characters may be reduced by half if th is gives a better visual effect, as for example LA, TV; over lapped in case of say LT, TA etc, and the space is increased for letters with adjoining stems. CAPITAL Letters • Ratio of height to width for most of the CAPITAL letters is approximately = 10:6 • However, for M and W, the ratio = 10:8 for I the ratio = 10:2 Lower-case Letters • Height of lower-case letters with stem I tail (b, d, f, g, h, j, k, I, p, q, t, y) = C = c = h z 3 • Ratio of height to width for lower-case letters with stem or tail = 10:5 • Height of lower-case letters without stem or tail c is approximately = (7/10) h 1 • Ratio of height to width for most lower-case letters without stem or tail = 7: 5 • However, for m and w, the ratio = 7: 7. For I and I, the ratio = 10:2 _______________ Lettering and Dimensioning Practices 2.11 Numerals • For numerals 0 to 9, the ratio of height to width = 10 : 5. For I, ratio = 10 : 2 Spacing • Spacing between characters = a = (2/10)b • Spacing between words = e = (6/10)b SMALL SPACES SHOULD BE USED FOR GOOD LETTER SPACING Correct POOR LETTER SPACING RES'U L T S FRO M SPA C E S BEING TOO BIG In correct Ca) J.

I. All dimensional information necessary to describe a component clearly and completely shall be written directly on a drawing. 2. Each feature shall be dimensioned once only on a drawing, i.e., dimension marked in one view need not be repeated in another view. 3. Dimension should be placed on the view where the shape is best seen (Fig.2.14) 4. As far as possible, dimensions should be expressed in one unit only preferably in millimeters, without showing the unit symbol (mm). 5. As far as possible dimensions should be placed outside the view (Fig.2.15). 6. Dimensions should be taken from visible outlines rather than from hidden lines (Fig.2.16). 2.14 Textbook of Enginnering Drawing 13 26 INCORRECT CORRECT Fig. 2.14 Placing the Dimensions where the Shape is Best Shown I - r- 50 50 CORRECT INCORRECT Fig. 2.15 Placing Dimensions Outside the View 10 10 26 Correct Incorrect Fig. 2.16 Marking the dimensions from the visible outlines 7. No gap should be left between the feature and the start of the extension line (Fig.2.I7). 8. Crossing of centre lines should be done by a long dash and not a short dash (Fig.2.I8). __________________ Lettering and Dimensioning Practices 2.15 22 52 52 Incorrect Correct Fig. 2.17 Marking of Extension Lines Incorrect Correct Fig. 2.18 Crossing of Centre Lines 2.4.2 Execution of Dimensions 1. Prejection and dimension lines should be drawn as thin continuous lines. projection lines should extend slightly beyond the respective dimension line. Projection lines should be drawn perpendicular to the feature being dimensioned. If the space for dimensioning is insufficient, the arrow heads may be reversed and the adjacent arrow heads may be replaced by a dot (Fig.2.19). However, they may be drawn obliquely, but parallel to each other in special cases, such as on tapered feature (Fig.2.20). 2 .1 °1. 20 1 30 .1 1 4=4= Fig. 2.19 Dimensioning in Narrow Spaces
