Fig. 1-31. Coordinates are dimensioned from base lines. Where many coordinates are required to define an outline, the vertical and horizontal coordinate dimensions may be tabulated, as in Fig. 1-32.
126.96.36.199 Grid System. Curved pieces that represent patterns may be defined by a grid system with numbered grid lines.
1.8.8 Symmetrical Outlines. Symmetrical outlines may be dimensioned on one side of the center line of symmetry. Such is the case where, due to the size of the part or space limitations, only part of the outline can be conveniently shown. See Fig. 1-33. One-half the outline of the symmetrical shape is shown and symmetry is indicated by applying symbols for part symmetry to the center line. See ASME Y14.2M.
