One-view drawings are commonly used in the manufacturing industry to represent parts that are uniform in shape. These drawings are often supplemented with notes, symbols, and written information. They are normally used to describe the shape of cylindrical, cone-shaped, rectangular, and other symmetrical parts. Leaders are often used to relate a note to a particular feature, as in Figure 5.8. Thin, flat objects of uniform thickness are typically represented by one-view drawings.
