Academic Questions in Basic Technology
Which of the following is not a function of thin continuous line in Technical drawing?
The following are Types of Line in Technical Drawing EXCEPT _____.
We have various type of lines in technical drawings and geometric constructions. Each of these lines will serve a different purpose by providing a specific detail or information to those looking at your construction or drawing.
As a student, an understanding of the various type of lines will prove generally useful, especially to those with great interest in Mathematics and Basic Technology. Also, those who are into buildings (Building Engineers) will need to read and interpret various architectural drawings in order to effectively implement their job.
In Technical Drawings, Lines are used for the interpretation of drawings by the technical people involved.
Type of lines is a form of language communication between technical individuals.Please read on Lines in Mathematics here.
The diagram below shows the various types of line, their description and general application:
A thin continuous line could be a straight or curved line but the main point is that it’s a tiny (thin) line with no dot or dashes within it.
A Thin Continuous Line is used for representing the followings:
It has a stronger outline than the thin continuous line. It could be straight or curved, but with no dot or dashes within it.
Thick Continuous Line is mainly used for:
These lines contain short tiny (thin) dashes within it.
Short Thin Dash Lines are used for:
Below are the uses of Dashed Thin Lines with Dots:
This line is similar to the Dash Thin Lines with Dots EXCEPT that it has double dots within it.
They are lines with pointed edges at one or both ends.
Note: The pointed edges are in the form of an arrow.
Arrowhead Lines are used:
This is a straight line in the zigzag direction. Please see the diagram above.
Below are the uses of Continuous Thin Straight Zigzag Line:
These lines are drawn only with the hands and without a ruler or another similar ruling material.
Note: The Free Hand Line is similar in function to the Continuous Thin Irregular Line.
The Free Hand Line serves the following:
Please see the diagram above
