extension lines
used in dimensioning, indicate the points from which the measurements are taken
center lines
locate holes in a part. these lines pass through the center of the hole
dimension lines
have arrows apointing to the extension lines that indicate the range of the dimension. between the extension lines
orthographic projection
top and side views are projected up to the right of the front view
