Types Of Drawings
  • Detail Drawings - Supplies all the information required to construct a part, include all dimensions, materials and type of finish.
  • Assembly Drawings - An assembly drawing depict the relationship between two or more parts. The drawings reference individual parts by their part number and specify the type and number of fasteners needed to join them.
  • Installation Drawings - All sub-assemblies are brought together in an installation drawing. It how the general arrangement or position of part with respect to the aircraft and provides the information needed to install them.
  • Sectional Drawings - When it is necessary to show the internal construction or shape of a part a sectional drawing is used.
                • Revolved Sections - when only the shape of a part needs to be shown. Often used to illustrate simple items with no interior parts.
                • Removed Section - The object is cut by a cutting plane line and a section is removed to illustrate another angle.
                • Complete Sectional - Complex assemblies use complete sectional views which makes it easy to identify individual part within the assembly.
                • Half-Sectional - Is used when it is helpful to see the outside of a part a well as the inside.
  • Exploded-View Drawing - hows every part in an assembly and are typically in their relative positions and expanded out-ward. Each part is identified by both it's physical appearance and it's reference number.
  • Block Diagrams - Consists of individual block that represent several components such as a printed circuit board or some other type of replaceable module.
  • Logic Flowcharts - Represents the mechanical, electrical, or electronic action of a system without expressing construction or engineering information.
  • Electrical Wiring Diagram - Typically identify each component with in a system by its part number and it serial number.
  • Pictorial Diagram - Pictures or component are used instead of the conventional electrical symbols found in schematic diagrams.
  • Schematic Diagram - Used to illustrate the principal of operation and, therefore, does not how part a the actually appear or function.
