Stone is a common natural building material with characteristics such as hardness, durability, and aesthetics, making it widely used in fields such as architecture, decoration, and carving. Stone processing refers to the cutting, polishing, carving, and other processing of natural stone to make it a product that meets design requirements. The interpretation of stone processing drawings is a crucial step in the stone processing process. In this article, I will introduce how to quickly understand stone processing drawings in order to complete the work more efficiently during the stone processing process.
1、 Basic elements of stone processing drawings
The stone processing diagram is composed of many basic elements, including lines, text, symbols, etc. Among them, lines are the most basic elements, which can be divided into solid lines, dashed lines, dotted lines, and so on. Solid lines represent continuous lines, dashed lines represent broken lines, and dotted lines represent auxiliary lines. Text and symbols can be used to supplement the meaning of lines, such as dimensions, elevations, symbols, etc.
2、 Reading sequence of stone processing drawings
When reading the stone processing diagram, it is necessary to follow a certain order. Generally speaking, the order of reading stone processing drawings is: first look at the sheet, scale, and title bar, then look at the drawing description, then look at different angles of graphics such as floor plans, elevations, and sections, and finally look at details and annotations.
3、 Details and annotations of stone processing drawings
The details and annotations of stone processing drawings are the key to interpreting them. In details and annotations, attention should be paid to the following points:
1. Types and materials of stone: Different types of stone have different materials and characteristics, so different methods and techniques need to be used during processing.
2. Size and shape of stone: The size and shape of stone are important parameters for stone processing and need to be accurately marked on the drawing.
3. Surface treatment methods of stone: The surface treatment methods of stone include polishing, cutting, carving, etc., which need to be clearly marked on the drawing.
4. Installation method of stone: The installation method of stone includes pasting, fixing, hanging, etc., which needs to be clearly marked on the drawing.
4、 How to quickly understand stone processing drawings
The following skills need to be mastered:
1. Familiar with commonly used symbols and annotations: Commonly used symbols and annotations in stone processing drawings include line types, dimension annotations, symbol annotations, etc. Familiarity with these symbols and annotations can quickly understand the meaning of the drawing.
2. Pay attention to details and annotations: When reading the stone processing drawing, it is necessary to pay attention to details and annotations in order to better understand the meaning of the drawing.
3. Multi-angle reading of graphics: When reading stone processing drawings, it is necessary to read the graphics from different angles in order to better understand the meaning of the drawings.
4. Reference to relevant materials: When reading stone processing drawings, you can refer to relevant materials, such as stone types, materials, processing methods, etc., in order to better understand the meaning of the drawings.
5、 Generally, there are elevation, section, node, and detail drawings on the stone processing drawings.
What are the differences between these drawings?
Elevation: The facade of a building, which is a surface viewed from the outside;
Section: Draw the elevation of the section where it is cut, such as the section where an apple is cut;
Node diagram: A detailed structural drawing of something;
Detail drawing: Similar to node drawing, it is a detailed structural drawing, but the difference is that the detail drawing needs to indicate different materials used.
What is an elevation view?
The orthographic projection of the house on a projection plane parallel to the building facade is called the building elevation, abbreviated as the elevation.
What is a cross-sectional view?
1. A cross-sectional view, also known as a cross-sectional view, is an internal structural legend displayed in a certain cutting direction based on relevant graphics;
2. A cross-sectional view is an orthographic projection made by imagining an object being cut open using a cutting plane, removing the part between the observer and the cutting plane, and projecting the remaining part towards the projection plane.
What is a node diagram?
A node diagram is the intersection point of two or more decorative surfaces, which represents a specific structure of a part that cannot be clearly represented in the entire diagram. It is a type of diagram that shows the details of building construction.
What is a detailed drawing?
1. The detailed drawing is more detailed compared to the node diagram, which means that the content that cannot be expressed in the node diagram is enlarged to express it more clearly;
2. A large sample image is an enlarged annotation of a specific area with a pointer, which provides a more detailed representation.
The interpretation of stone processing drawings is a crucial step in the stone processing process. In order to quickly understand stone processing drawings, it is necessary to be familiar with commonly used symbols and annotations, pay attention to details and annotations, read the graphics from multiple angles, and refer to relevant materials. Through these techniques, stone processing work can be completed more efficiently. Understanding stone processing drawings is a basic skill in the stone processing process. Only by mastering this skill can we better understand and achieve design requirements, and ensure the quality and efficiency of stone processing. At the same time, it is necessary to constantly learn and explore, continuously improve one’s skills and abilities, in order to adapt to the constantly changing market demands and industry development trends.
