When you are preparing drawings, you will use different types of lines to convey information. Center lines are composed of long and short dashes, alternately and evenly spaced, with a long dash at each end. To prevent confusion in the interpretation of hidden edge lines, you must apply certain standard techniques in drawing these lines. Extension lines are used to extend dimensions beyond the outline of a view so that they can be read easily.
A dimension line, terminating at either end in a long, pointed arrowhead, is inserted between each pair of extension lines. The size of the arrowhead used on a drawing may vary with the size of the drawing, but all arrowheads on a single drawing should be the same size, except  occasionally when space is very restricted. With a little practice, you can learn to make good arrowheads freehand, Referring to figure 3-32, first define the length of the arrowhead with a short stroke as shown at A.
Leaders are used to connect numbers, references, or notes to the appropriate surfaces or lines on the drawing. The part in one position is drawn in full lines, while in the alternate position it is drawn in phantomlines.Phantom lines are also used to indicate a breakwhen the nature of the object makes the use of the conventional type of break unfeasible.
Sometimes the technical information conveyed by a drawing can best be shown by a view thatrepresents the object as it would look if part of it were cut away. The lower view is a section, showing the pipe sleeve as it would look, viewed from one side, if it were cut exactly in half vertically. The cross-hatching shown in figure 3-37 could be used on any drawing of parts made of only one material (like machine parts, for example, which are generally made of metal).
A section like the one shown in figure 3-37, which goes all the way through and divides the object into halves, is called a full section. VIEWING PLANE LINES are used to indicate the plane or planes from which a surface or several surfaces are viewed.
CUTTING PLANE LINES are used to indicate a plane or planes in which a sectional view  is taken. Section views are used to give a clearer view of the interior or hidden feature of an object that normally cannot be clearly observed in conventional outside views.
Figure 3-38, view C, is a front view showing how the object would look if it were cut in half.
The orthographic section view of section A-A, figure 3-38, view D, instead of the confusing front view in figure 3-38, view A, is placed on the drawing. Cutting plane lines, together with arrows and letters, make up the cutting plane indications. All cutting plane indications should be identified by use of reference letters placed at the point of the arrowheads. The letters that are part of the cutting plane indication should always appear as part of the title; for example, SECTION A-A, SECTION B-B, If the single alphabet is exhausted, multiples of letters maybe used.
Match lines are used when an object is too large to fit on a single drawing sheet and must be continued on another sheet.
Is that really Weird Al's body doing the dancing and those contortions or is it some kind of computer trickery?
He's saying that all great ideas come from copying, transforming and combining the ideas of others. There was a story out a few weeks ago that Gaga's people had refused permission, but that Gaga herself over ruled them, claiming that the idea had never been bought to her, and with her claiming that she loves the parody.
There seems to be some minor minor blurring around the head area that suggests this is the case. Line characteristics, such as widths, breaks in the line, and zigzags, all have definite meanings.
These include not only the outlines of the view, but lines defining edges that are visible within the view. A hidden edge line that is supposed to join a visible or another hidden line must actually contact the line, as shown in the upper views of figure 3-27; The incorrect procedure is shown in the lower views.
These thin, unbroken lines are started about one sixteenth of an inch from the outline of the object and extend about one eighth of an inch beyond the outermost  dimension line.


Occasionally, when the radius of an arc is to be indicated, there is an arrow at only the end of the line that touches the arc. If these arrowheads are sloppily drawn and vary in size, the drawing will not look finished and professional. The arrowheads used on Navy drawings are usually solid, or filled in, and are between one eighth and one fourth of an inch long, with the length about three times the spread. From any suitable  portion of the reference, note, or number, a short line is drawn parallel to the lettering.
The cross-hatching is the symbol for metals and may be used for a section drawing of any type of material. If the section showed the sleeve as it would look if cut vertically into unequal parts, or cut only part way through, it would be a partial section.
A section view is obtained by cutting away part of an object to show the shape and construction at the cutting plane. These lines are omitted by general custom, the custom being based on the fact that the elimination of hidden lines is the basic reason for making a sectional view. The arrows at the end of the cutting plane lines are used to indicate the direction in which the sections are viewed. Where a change in direction of the cutting plane is not clear, reference letters may also be placed at each change of direction. They consist of a series of very short dashes (medium thickness), approximately half the length of the dash of hidden lines, evenly spaced.
The points where the object stops on one sheet and continues on the next sheet must be identified with corresponding match lines. Soft knit cut in a relaxed muscle tee silhouette features a banded crewneck and deep cut arm holes. Purple font, be aware this tee runs small ( for example if you wear a small order medium, if you wear medium order a large, if you wear a large order xlarge, and if you wear xlarge order xxlarge so order up from your true size for that perfect fit,. The majority being in roman capitals although one upper and lower case font is available for epitaphs.   Hand carved lettering Traditionally lettering has been cut by hand for centuries using a hammer and chisel. Supposedly someone she talked to asked her why she had refused, and she went to her people asking what the deal was, and they gave her a copy of the bit.
They are drawn parallel to each other and perpendicular to the distance to be shown.  (See fig.
When it is necessary for extension lines to cross each other, they should be broken (exceptions to this rule have been adopted since the development of CAD software). The other end, without an arrow, terminates at the point used as the center in drawing the arc. From this line the remainder of the leader is drawn at an angle (dog leg) to an arrowhead or dot. However, the break tells you that a considerable amount of the central part of the figure is presumed to be removed.
According to DoD-STD-100C, “section lining shall be composed of uniformly spaced lines at an angle of 45 degrees to the baseline of the section. If the cut followed one vertical line part of the way down and then was offset to a different line, it would be an offset section. However, lines that would be visible behind the plane projection must be included in the section view.
The cutting plane may be a single continuous plane, or it may be offset if the detail can be shown to better advantage. Where more than one sectional view appears on a drawing, the cutting plane indications should be lettered alphabetically. Long lines of stitching may be indicated by a series of stitch lines connected by phantom lines.
They are medium weight lines indicated with the words MATCH LINE and referenced to the sheet that has the corresponding match line. For our curvy, sexy, cool ladies if you feel you need a more relaxed fit tee, we can also provide a beautiful bright unisex tee as well. Line weight for construction lines is not important since they will not appear on your finished drawing.


Examples of construction drawings that may require match lines are maps and road plans where the length is much greater than the width and it is impractical to reduce the size of the drawing to fit a single sheet.
Our carvers are so talented other memorial masons bring hand lettering to us for our craftsmen to carve. A very short center line may be drawn as a single dash if there is no possibility of confusing it with other lines. If the reference is to a line, the leader is always terminated at this line with an arrowhead, as shown in figure 3-33. A short break is indicated by solid, freehand lines, and is generally used for rectangular sections.
On large, complex views or when the cutting planes are offset, they should be shown as in figure 3-39.
Center lines may also be used to indicate the travel of a moving center, as shown in figure 3-24. However, a reference to a surface terminates with a dot within the outline of that surface. By using a break, you can reduce the length of the figure to a feasible length, as shown in figure 3-34. For wooden rectangular sections, the breaks are made sharper (serrated appearance) rather than wavy. It will take our mason three days to carve an average inscription, it is carved with much love and great care. With the exception of light lettering guidelines, all construction lines must be erased or darkened before a drawing is reproduced.
For long breaks, full, ruled lines with freehand zigzags are used, as shown in view (B), figure 3-34. For drawings made to a large scale, special conventions are used that apply to drawing breaks in such things as metal rods, tubes, or bars. It’s good news, but ultimately the success of TypeKit will hinge on its ability to broker deals with the foundries and distributors. Insanely talented (& perhaps insane) and very funny to boot, you perhaps know him by his illustrations for A List Apart, or through his Web site Bear Skin Rug. He and Randy Jones, designer of Olduvai (see below), have turned some of his lovely Victorian flavoured lettering into a font.
Meet Phaeton:Comes with a pretty extensive character set for this style of font, and numerous ornaments and dingbats, or miniature illustrations.
Let me introduce you to the ultimate male (or gay girl) type nerd fantasy, Ladies of Letterpress:There are a number of Ladies who print on Twitter too.
A site dedicated to wood type (something Nick knows a thing or two about):There are business cards, and then there are business cards.
Love the tapered joins in the lowercase:It’s available in numerous weights and styles (50 fonts!). Among other things, I think it would make a great logotype choice; or used to set an Architectural journal or magazine. So the give-away will celebrate ILT’s second birthday, and is ultimately a way of saying thank you to ILT readers.I won’t list all the prizes here (there are more than 40). Most of the prizes will be given away via Twitter, with a couple of the larger prizes going to the winner of a competition (yet to be arranged). I will begin the give-away on August 8, and will publish more details then.But why wait for next month! Today I’d like to give away three letterpress prints by Kevin Cornell, and available exclusively through Coudal:Just include the hashtag #ilovetypography in a Tweet, and you’re automatically entered into the draw.
