This is a style guide for technical drawing, whether on paper or screen.
Standard widths: 0.13mm, 0.18mm, 0.25mm, 0.35mm, 0.50mm, 0.70mm. These are designed to be scaled to different ISO standard paper sizes and still be of a standard width (i.e. there is a multiplier of √2 between each).
Include enough information to enable the drawing to be completely understood. In no particular order:
- Context (of the subject);
- Units (if other than milimeters);
- Copyright (of both the drawing and the design);
- Reference number; and
A title block should not exceed 170mm in width.
Representation of Materials
Brickwork in section is represented by parallel 0.35mm lines, outlining the actual (i.e. scaled) width of the brickwork, with double 0.25mm lines crossing at 45˚, spaced three line-thicknesses apart and such that one pair starts 1/3 of the wall thickness from where the previous pair met the opposite line.
