  • visible – are continuous lines used to depict edges directly visible from a particular angle.
  • hidden – are short-dashed lines that may be used to represent edges that are not directly visible.
  • center – are alternately long- and short-dashed lines that may be used to represent the axes of circular features.
  • cutting plane – are thin, medium-dashed lines, or thick alternately long- and double short-dashed that may be used to define sections for section views
  • section – are thin lines in a pattern (pattern determined by the material being "cut" or "sectioned") used to indicate surfaces in section views resulting from "cutting." Section lines are commonly referred to as "cross-hatching."
  • phantom - (not shown) are alternately long- and double short-dashed thin lines used to represent a feature or component that is not part of the specified part or assembly. E.g. billet ends that may be used for testing, or the machined product that is the focus of a tooling drawing.
