What does hidden lines look like?
A hidden line, also known as a hidden object line is a medium weight line, made of short dashes about 1/8” long with 1/16”gaps, to show edges, surfaces and corners which cannot be seen. Sometimes they are used to make a drawing easier to understand. Often they are omitted in an isometric view.
What type of lines are used for hidden details?
Hidden details are shown by a series of dashes making up a broken line. It is normal practice that you place a dash at the beginning of the hidden line and another at the end where it meets an intersecting line.
What is the heaviest line in a drawing?
The heaviest line weight indicates the ground line cut. The next heaviest line weight “profiles the planes closest to the plane of projection” (Ching & Juroszek, 1998, p. 152). Medium line weight indicates distance from picture plane, progressively getting lighter to describe objects further from the picture plane.
What is the basic difference between Centre line and hidden line?
In a scaled drawing, the hidden line can be measured from the start of the first dash, to the end of the last dash. Centre lines are drawn to indicate the exact centre of a component being drawn. They are made from a series of lighter long and short dashes.
How do you hide hidden edges in Solidworks?

Usually only the visible surfaces of an object are drawn in isometric, with hidden lines left out. Although this is considered the preferred practice, there are always times when hidden lines are needed to clarify very complex isometric drawings.
