very light lines used as guides for printing/writing
Centre lines
thin dark chain line used to indicate centres, and symmetrical axes
Hidden lines
thin dark short dashed lines used to represent unseen edges
Break line (small objects)
thin dark curvy free hand drawn line to show limits of short broken section
Break lines (large object)
thin dark zig-zag line used to show the limits of a long broken section
Cutting plane line
dark centre chain line thick at both ends with arrows, used to show the location of cutting planes
Phantom lines
slim dark chain line of one long dash and two very short dashes used to indicate connecting part not part of the main design

Bisection of an angle
angle divided into two equal angles
Bisection of a line
line divided into two equal parts
Dimensioning
shows size or location
Dimension lines
fine dark line terminated by arrowheads indicating direction and extension of dimension
Extension lines
fine dark line extended from a point on the drawing perpendicular to the referred dimension line
Dimensions
placed parallel to the referred size of location
Extension lines
placed a little pass but perpendicular the dimension line with a gap before the point on the drawing
Line
a continuous series of points
