How to use line thicknesses in engineering

Line thicknesses are used based on the drawing elements. If we are preparing engineering drawing we must have a basic knowledge on the types of lines and thickness of lines in the engineering drawing.

In the drawing lines are different types they are using according the drawing. The model lines should be keeping with maximum thickness along with thick color (Colors are Black, Red etc…)

Thickness of lines from 0.00 mm to 2.11 mm
