Cut representation in technical drawings

Cut Sheets are used in this Technical drawings to geometries (workpiece edges) of components and assemblies display, which otherwise are not visible. For example, cuts are inserted in holes, casings, and similar breakthroughs geometries used.
In principle, you can cut the presentation imagine it as if you have a piece with a hacksaw and durchschneidet on one of the divided halves looks.

Draw Cuts

In a presentation, the cutting edges as Volllinien drawn. The cut surfaces of the body or the average will be filled with a hatch. These will hatch at an angle of 45 ° drawn. If in a technical drawing two cut surfaces of two components meet, is one of the opposite surfaces below 45 ° or 135 ° shades. Cavities are not hatched cuts.

Cutting styles

Full cut

When full, the front half of a piece completely cut off. At which point the cut is made freely selectable. Mostly, however, made the cut along the longitudinal or perpendicular to the longitudinal axis.
An example of a full, you can see in the picture right.

Half cut

The Halbschnitt is symmetrical work pieces for simplified representation applied. When Halbschnitt is only one fourth of the piece cut out. Therefore, it is one half of the piece from the outside and the other half from the inside (ie cut) see.
An example of a Halbschnitt you see in the picture right.

Partial cut

With the partial cut is only a certain area of a workpiece cut. The cut may be caused by a limit line (or freehand lines zigzag line) to be labeled - they should not.
An example of einene partial cut you see in the picture right.

Profil cut

The profile you can cut a typical way for profiles as angle iron, pipes, T-makers and similar applications. Here, the average representation in the corresponding view be rotated or even next to be drawn.
