RE: Sections or Details

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]



My Sections show a condition that extends some distance on the Plan, such as the intersection of a roof and a wall.  My Details show how to construct a structural Assembly. 


Most Sections will refer to Details; for example, the assembly of components for construction a wall anchor that has been drawn schematically in the Section will be shown in the Detail.


A Section is a single view.  A Detail may have several views in order to clarify how the components are to be assembled.

What is the proper title to be used for structural sections and details sheets? I normally refer to my typical as details and my specific cuts tied into the plan as sections. Opinions?
