Section Views

The modus operandi called section views is used to advance the prophecy of innovative designs, elucidate multiple view drawings and smooth the progress of the dimensioning of drawings. For mechanical drawings section views are used to divulge internal description of an object that is not easily represented using concealed lines.
Sectional drawings are multiple view methodological drawings that contain unique views of a part or parts, a view that divulge internal description. Conventional sections views are based on the use of a pretend cutting plane that cuts through the object to divulge internal description.

A full section view is made by passing a pretend cutting plane entirely through an entity. Pretend cutting plane ephemeral entirely through an entity and half of it being isolated. In a multiple view drawing, a full section view is placed in the same position that an unsectioned view would usually dwell in; that is, a front section view would substitute the conventional front view.
Half sections are created by ephemeral an pretend cutting plane intermediate through an entity and one quarter of it is isolated. Concealed lines are omitted on both halves of the section view. Peripheral features of the part are drawn on the unsectioned half of the view. A centre line, not an object line, is used to separate the sectioned half from the unsectioned half of the view. Half section views are most often used on parts that are symmetrical.
A broken-out section is used to show core description of a ingredient by breaking away some of the entity. A broken-out section is used instead of a half or full section view to save time. A break line separates the sectioned from un-sectioned half of the view. A break line is drawn free-hand to represent the jagged edge of the break. No cutting plane line is drawn with a broken-out section view.
A revolved section is made by gyrating to the cross-section view of the part about an axis of rebellion and placing the section view on the ingredient. The cross section created at the position that the cutting plane passed is then revolved 90 degrees and drawn on the view. Visible lines adjacent to the revolved view can either be drawn or broken out using conventional breaks. It is used to depict the section of an elongated entity without the need to illustrate the entire sectional view.
Removed sections are used to show the contours of problematical shapes such as blades for jet engines. Removed sections are made in a manner analogous to revolved sections, by passing an pretend cutting plane perpendicular to a part then revolving the cross section 90 degrees. However, the cross section is then drawn adjacent to the orthographic view, not on it. If a number of removed sections are done on a part, cutting plane lines may be drawn with labels to elucidate the position from which each section is taken. Whenever possible, a removed section should be on the same sheet as the part it represents, and it should be clearly pigeonholed.
An offset section has its cutting plane bent at 90 degree angles to pass through significant characteristics. Offset sections are used for versatile parts that have a number of significant characteristics that cannot be sectioned using a straight cutting plane. The significant internal features of an entity are not lying on a single plane, a full section may not be able to show all the details. Offset section is a technique whereby the cutting plane offsets to pass through various features that would otherwise be missed by a full section. Thick lines should be used at the change of direction of the cutting plane.

Aligned sections are special types of orthographic drawings used to revolve or align special features of parts to clarify or make them easier to represent in section. Normally the alignment is along a horizontal or vertical center line and always less than 90 degrees.
