JIS Standard Paper Sizes: JIS  (Japanese Industrial Standard ) defines two series of paper sizes: the JIS A-series and the JIS B-series. the JIS A-series is identical to the ISO216 standard A-series, only with slightly different tolerances. However, the JIS B-series is completely different to the ISO216 standard B-series. the area of Japanese B-series paper is 1.5 times that of the corresponding A-series paper, so the lenghd ratio is approximately 1.22 times the lenghd of the corresponding A-series paper. the aspect ratio remains the same for JIS B-series paper as it is for A-series paper. Both JIS A and B-series paper is widely used throughout Japan and Taiwan.

Technical Drawing Style

There are some technical drawing styles to follow to make technical drawing either freehand or by using CAD applications. These are Isometric, Orthographic, Oblique, and Perspective.

Oblique Drawing: Oblique Drawing/projection is a method of drawing objects in 3 dimensions. Oblique projections focus on the front of the object, but also show the top and one side, and are drawn at 45 Degree angle. As shown below;

Isometric Drawing: Isometric drawing/projection is a method of visually representing three-dimensional objects in two dimensions in engineering technical drawings. Isometric is an easy method of drawing 3D image. All lines in isometric drawings are drawn to scale. In isometric drawing all the vertical lines are drawn vertically but all horizontal lines are drawn at 30 degrees to the base line. As shown below;

Orthographic Drawing: Orthographic drawing/projection is a means of representing a three-dimensional object in two dimensions. Orthographic projection show the top, sides, and the bottom of and object. Also orthographic projection is called multi view drawings. The views are always drawing to scale. Orthographic projection may have six views or three views. Three view drawn is most common.

ISO and ANSI Projection Symbols used to define First Angle Projection and Third Angle Projection.

First-angle projection is the ISO standard and is primarily used in Europe. When the 3D object is projected into 2D "paper" After projected Front view, the top view is under the front view, the right view is at the left of the front view. The symbol for first angle projection shown as follow;
