LEARNING GUIDE OVERVIEW
In the broad field of technical drawings, various projection methods are used to
represent objects. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages.
The normal technical drawing is shown in orthogonal projection, in which more than one
view is used to draw and completely define an object.
However, to be able to represent the different views of an object one must be acquainted
with the different forms of lines. The various lines used in drawing form the alphabet of the

n
drafting language.
In this learning material, the students should be able to apply the alphabet of lines in

na
projecting the principal views of an object.
Competencies will be demonstrated by completing the job sheet and the unit test with a
minimum score of 75 percent.

HOW TO USE THIS LEARNING GUIDE
This Learning Guide will lead you through a series of activities which will require you to work at
your own pace. These activities will ask you to complete associated learning and practice
activities in order to gain the knowledge and skills you need to achieve the learning objectives
stated earlier.

Refer to Learning Activity Page to know the sequence of learning tasks to undergo and the
appropriate resources to use in each task. This page will serve as your road map towards the

n
achievement of objectives.

na
Read the information sheets. This will give you an understanding of the work, and why things
are done the way they are.

Complete the activities as directed in the activity/practice sheets. These will test your
knowledge and give you practice of doing the tasks involved. Performance criteria for assessing

da
practical exercise are shown to guide you in undertaking the practical exercises. Always be
aware of safety requirements highlighted in this material. Ask for clearance in using some tools
and equipment. Should you require some assistance and clarification, consult your trainer or
facilitator. They should be available anytime you need them.
an
Answer self-checks found in each section of the learning guide. Do not write anything on this
learning guide; provide separate sheets for your answers. Self-checks will let you know how you
are going. To know how you fared with self checks, review the answer keys found at the end of
the learning guide.
al
When you had completed all the tasks required in this learning guide, an assessment exercise
will be given to evaluate if you are already competent with the specified learning outcomes in
and ready for the next task. .If you feel ready for the assessment, consult the facilitator.
fs

A record of competency is provided on the last page to reflect how much of the required
assessment criteria have been met.
nn

You may already have some or most of the knowledge and skills covered in this learner’s guide.
Talk to your trainer about having them formally recognized. If you have qualification or certificate
of competence from previous training, show it to your trainer. If the skills you acquired are still
current and relevant to the unit of competency they may become part of the evidence you can
e

present for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). If you are not sure about the accuracy of
your skills, discuss it with your trainer.

ALPHABET OF LINES
I. Basic Types of Lines and their Uses

a. Visible lines – Used to show visible edges

n
or contours of an object (NOTE: Visible
lines are sometimes called object lines.)

na
b. Hidden lines – Used to show surfaces or
features on an object that are not visible

c. Center lines – Used to show the centers

da
of holes, round shapes, or the travel of a
center (path or motion)

d. Section lines – Used to show a surface


an
that has been cut in a section view

e. Extension lines – Used for placing


dimensions; these extend (but do not
al
touch) from the lengths and widths of
objects

f. Dimension lines – Used to show the size


fs

(dimensions) of an object; spans from one


extension line to the next, has arrowhead
at both ends, and is broken in the middle
nn

fro the measurement number (dimension)

g. Leader lines – Used to direct descriptive


information, notes, or special dimensions
to features on the drawing
e

h. Cutting-plane lines – Used to show where


gl

a section has been taken; arrows on the


end show the direction in which the
section was taken

i. Break lines – Used to show that part of
the object has been removed or broken
away
1. Short breaks are for freehand, jagged
lines
2. Long breaks are solid with a Z symbol
inserted in several places

j. Phantom lines – Used to show the

n
position of an object that moves (rotated
position)

na
k. Border lines – Used to define the outer
edges or margins on the drafting media;
the drawing and all other information is
inside this border.

ORTHOGRAPHIC PROJECTION
A. Orthographic Projection
An orthographic projection is a representation of separate views of an object on a two-
dimensional surface. It reveals the width, depth and height of the object.

n
Ortho means “straight or at right angle” and graphic means “written or drawn”.
Projection comes from two Latin words: “pro,” meaning “forward,” and “jacere,”

na
meaning “to throw.”

The projection is achieved by viewing the object from a point assumed to be at infinity
(an indefinitely great distance away). The line of sight or projectors are parallel to each other
and perpendicular to the plane of projection.

B. Steps in Selecting Correct Views of an Object

1. Select the number of views necessary to represent the object. This may require only one
view or as many as all six views. Only draw as many views as are necessary.
nn

2. Select the front view which:


a. Best describes contour shape.
b. Contains the least number of hidden lines.
c. Is usually the longest view.
d. Shows object in normal position.
