CAD also has a number of other advantages over manual drawing. Let’s consider some of these advantages: Accuracy Points and dimensions can be fixed very accurately and do not depend on the draftsperson . Radii Radii can be made to blend with straight lines automatically. Repetitive features For example holes round a pitch circle do not have to be individually drawn but can be easily produced automatically by ‘mirror imaging’. Again, some repeated, complex feature need only be drawn once and saved as a matrix.
The same letters are used to identify the corresponding section or sectional view. 4 Engineering drawing techniques You will have noticed that the shading of sections and sectional views consists of sloping, thin (type B) lines. This is called hatching. The lines are equally spaced, slope at 45º and are not usually less than 4 mm apart. However when hatching very small areas the hatching can be reduced, but never less than 1 mm. The drawings in this book may look as though they do not obey these rules.
