Sections of Solids ME 111 Engineering Drawing Sectional Views The internal hidden details of the object are shown in orthographic views by dashed lines. The intensity of dashed lines in orthographic views depends on the complexity of internal structure of the object. If there are many hidden lines, it is difficult to visualize the shape of the object unnecessarily complicated and confusing. Therefore, the general practice is to draw sectional views for complex objects in addition to or instead

of simple orthographic views. A sectional view, as the name suggests, is obtained by taking the section of the object along a particular plane. An imaginary cutting plane is used to obtain the section of the object. Theory of Sectioning Whenever a section plane cuts a solid, it intersects (and or coincides with) the edges of the solids. The point at which the section plane intersects an edge of the solid is called the point of intersection (POI). In case of the solids having a curved surface, viz., cylinder, cone and sphere, POIs are located between the cutting True Shape of Sections A section will show its true shape when viewed in normal direction. To find the true shape of a section, it must be projected on a plane parallel to the section plane.

For polyhedra, the true shape of the section depends on the number of POIs. The shape of the section will be a polygon of the sides equal to the number of POIs. The true shape of the section of a sphere is always a circle. The sections of prisms and pyramids are straight line segmented curves. The sections of cylinders and cones will mostly have smooth curves. Types of Cutting Planes and Their Representation A cutting plane is represented by a cutting plane line The cutting plane line indicates the line view of the cutting plane. The two ends of the cutting plane line are made slightly thicker and provided with arrows. The direction of the arrow indicates the direction of viewing of the In the first-angle object. method of projection, the direction of the arrows is toward the POP, i.e., toward XY (or X1Y1). Types of section

planes Vertical Section plane Horizontal Section Plane Profile Section plane Hatching of the Sections The surface created by cutting the object by a section plane is called as section. The section is indicated by drawing the hatching lines (section lines) within the sectioned area. The hatching lines are drawn at 45 to the principal outlines or the lines of symmetry of the section The spacing between hatching lines should be uniform and in proportion to the size of the section. H or HB 2H Section plane parallel to one of the Reference Planes Remember: After launching a section plane either in FV or TV, the part towards

observer is assumed to be removed. As far as possible the smaller part is assumed to be removed. 1. Pentagonal pyramid resting on HP with on of its edge perpendicular to VP 2.
