Cutting Plane and Viewing Plane Lines

These are very prominent broken lines (usually two dots and a dash) that are used to show the location of cutting planes for sectional views. Arrows on their ends indicate the direction in which the section is observed (Figure 3.9A). Lines or circular symbols are sometimes used at their ends to relate the cutting planes to their section views. Like property lines, these lines are normally heavier than any other lines on a drawing.
