    What is the purpose of drawing section views?

    • A.

      To show the true size and shape of an object.

    • B.

      To show the true size and shape of holes.

    • C.

      To show what an object would look like without hidden lines.

    • D.

      To show the inside details of complicated parts that would be confusing with hidden lines.

    Correct Answer
    D. To show the inside details of complicated parts that would be confusing with hidden lines.
    Explanation
    Section views are used to display the internal details of complex objects that would otherwise be difficult to understand with hidden lines. By cutting through the object and removing the portion in front, section views provide a clear and unobstructed view of the internal features, such as intricate parts, assemblies, or mechanisms. This helps in better visualization, analysis, and comprehension of the object's internal structure, improving communication and facilitating manufacturing processes.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    What parts on a section view are not sectioned (hatched)?

    • A.

      Chamfers

    • B.

      Holes

    • C.

      Rounds

    • D.

      Fillets

    Correct Answer
    B. Holes
    Explanation
    In a section view, the parts that are not sectioned or hatched are the holes. This means that the holes are shown in their true shape and size without any cross-hatching to indicate the cutaway section. The other options, such as chamfers, rounds, and fillets, are typically shown with cross-hatching to indicate that they have been sectioned.

    On a section view, what do we call the lines used to show where the material was “cut through”?

    • A.

      Object lines

    • B.

      Hidden lines

    • C.

      Center lines

    • D.

      Cutting Plane lines

    Correct Answer
    D. Cutting Plane lines
    Explanation
    On a section view, the lines used to show where the material was "cut through" are called Cutting Plane lines. These lines indicate the specific location and direction of the cut made on the object, allowing for a clear representation of the internal features and structure of the object. The Cutting Plane lines help in understanding the design and construction of the object by providing a visual representation of the cross-section.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    At what angle are the section lines usually drawn?

    • A.

      30°

    • B.

      45°

    • C.

      60°

    • D.

      90°

    Correct Answer
    B. 45°
    Explanation
    Section lines are usually drawn at an angle of 45° because this angle provides a good balance between visibility and clarity. Drawing the section lines at a steeper angle may make them too close together and difficult to distinguish, while drawing them at a shallower angle may result in lines that are too far apart and do not effectively indicate the sectioned area. Therefore, a 45° angle is commonly used to ensure that the section lines are clearly visible and accurately represent the intended section.

  • 12. 

    What is the purpose of the cutting plane line?

    • A.

      To show where the material is cut.

    • B.

      To show which way you’re looking at the part.

    • C.

      To show which part you are removing.

    • D.

      To show what the part looks like.

    Correct Answer
    A. To show where the material is cut.
    Explanation
    The purpose of the cutting plane line is to indicate where the material is cut in a technical drawing or diagram. It helps to visually represent the section of the object that is being removed or shown in a different view. By using a cutting plane line, the viewer can easily understand the specific area that is being focused on and visualize how the object would appear after the cut.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    What line type is the cutting plane line?

    • A.

      Section lines

    • B.

      Hidden lines

    • C.

      Center lines

    • D.

      Phantom lines

    Correct Answer
    D. Phantom lines
    Explanation
    Phantom lines are used to represent objects or features that cannot be seen in the current view but are important for understanding the design or construction of the object. They are typically used to show hidden edges, alternate positions, or repeated detail. In this case, the cutting plane line is represented by phantom lines because it indicates the location and direction of the cut in the object, which is not visible in the current view.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    What do the arrowheads on the cutting plane line indicate?

    • A.

      Which part you are removing.

    • B.

      Which way you’re looking at the part.

    • C.

      What the part looks like.

    • D.

      To show where the material is cut.

    Correct Answer
    B. Which way you’re looking at the part.
    Explanation
    The arrowheads on the cutting plane line indicate which way you're looking at the part. This is important because it helps to understand the orientation and perspective of the part being shown in the diagram. The arrowheads provide a clear indication of the direction from which the part is being viewed, allowing for better interpretation and understanding of the diagram.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    What line types are usually omitted from sectional views?

    • A.

      Section lines

    • B.

      Hidden lines

    • C.

      Center lines

    • D.

      Phantom lines

    Correct Answer
    B. Hidden lines
    Explanation
    Hidden lines are usually omitted from sectional views because their purpose is to represent features that are not visible in the current view. Sectional views are used to show the internal structure of an object, so hidden lines, which represent edges or surfaces that are not visible from the current viewing angle, are not necessary in these views. Instead, sectional views focus on showing the visible features and the relationships between them.
