Standard Views? - Indiustry Guidelines?


New member
I am researching standard views used for solid modeling. Would appreciate input from the various industries (automotive, aerospace, etc.).

Anyone aware of Standards that exist (SAE,ANSI, etc.)?
Here's a few standards that may help your research:

ASME Y14.2M-1992 Line Conventions and Lettering

ASME Y14.3M-1994 Multiview and Sectional View Drawings

ASME Y14.5M-1994 Dimensioning and Tolerancing

All industries use some form of these standards.
