It is important to understand the stroke patterns for creating letters and numbers. True
The first step in drawing an isometric circle is to draw an isometric square. True
An object placed within orthographic view typically has 6 views. True
The United States uses first angle projection for placing views on a drawing. False
Pictorial drawings (oblique and isometric) are used to help interpret and visualize an object. True
When a hole passes through an inclined surface, it appears as elipses in an adjacent view. True
The radial axis where the metal changes from compression to tension is called the "normal" axis. False
When working with an isometric view, measurements can only be made on or parallel to the isometric axis. True
A typical isometric projected line is 60 percent smaller than the true size. False (50 percent)
Fillets are external edges. False
The top view shows the length and height of the object. False
An isometric view can only show two sides of an object. False (3)
Each orthographic view shows two dimensions of an object. True
Views are called planes of projections. True
Alignment pins are used to align the cope and drag together in the casting. True

Solid lines used to represent the edges and outlines of geometric features. Visible Object Lines
Thin dashed lines used to represent the edges or outlines of objects that are behind or within an object. Hidden Lines
Thin long-dash-long lines used to locate the center of a geometric feature or to represent the central axis of symmetrical objects. Center Lines
Thick long-dash-dash-long lines used to show the alternate position of an object. Phantom
Thin angled lines used to indicate the solid material that would touch a cutting blade when cutting through an object. Section Lines
Thick hidden line or a thick phantom line terminating with large arrowheads at 90 degrees. Cutting or Viewing Plane Lines
Used to show a portion of the object has been left out. Break Lines
Thin lines terminating in arrowheads with a dimension placed between the straight lines. Dimension Lines
Pair of thin solid lines extending from the dimension lines. Extension Lines
Thin solid lines beginning with a short horizontal line then extending on an angle until it touches the object. Leaders
Secondary auxiliary view is a projection off of the... Primary Auxiliary View
In this type of auxiliary view, a break line is used to indicate the imaginary break in the views. Partial

This type of auxiliary view is projected onto a plane that is perpendicular to one of the principal planes of projection: Primary
