The engineering drawing is the specification for the component or assembly and is an important contractual document with many legal implications, every line and every comment is important.

Attention to Detail

Part and Assembly Drawings
Part Drawings: • Detail drawings completely describe a single part with multiview orthographic projections. • Should provide all the information necessary to economically manufacture a high quality part.
Assembly Drawings: • Assembly drawings are used to show the position and functional relationship of parts in an assembly, also via multiview orthographic projections. • Generally they have no dimensions on them. • Parts are 'balloon' identified and referenced to either detail drawing numbers or catalog numbers, via a Bill of Materials (BOM)

depicting lines that would not be visible from the given perspective).• The glass box concept theorizes that an object is suspended inside a sixsided glass cube (notice the use of hidden lines on the glass box. .

• As the object is viewed from a specific orientation (perpendicular to one of the sides of the cube) visual rays project from the object to the projection plane. . These projectors are always parallel to each other.

• The object’s image is formed on the projection plane by the pierce points of the visual rays. .

• The process is repeated to construct the right side view on the profile plane .

• Similarly. the top view is projected to the horizontal plane .

. two to three orthographic views are sufficient to describe their geometry.• For many three-dimensional objects.

Cross Hatch Standards • The general purpose cross hatch is used in most individual detail component drawings and in assembly applications where no confusion will result. . • Each of the assembled components are depicted with a different crosshatch angle to assist in part differentiation. • Specific crosshatch symbols are sometimes used to represent each different material type.

Half Sections Shown without section: • Difficult to dimension without using hidden lines • Internal features – not as clear .

Offset Sections • Offset sections allow us to provide greater breadth of detail with fewer section views. All of the features are aligned with the cutting plane.D . D D SECTION D .

Tolerance Calculation - 'Worst Case Method'
for correct fit in all cases, if manufactured to specification
Allowance The minimum allowable difference between mating parts: Allowance = Smallest Hole Size - Largest Shaft Size Clearance The maximum allowable difference between mating parts: Clearance = Largest Hole Size - Smallest Shaft Size The 'Tolerance Build-up Problem' Where the combined dimension of several mating parts results in an unacceptable condition: generally non-functional (e.g. rotating or sliding action impaired), or parts will not assemble, or aesthetically unacceptable (e.g. inconsistent gaps around car doors)
