Class I - Technical Illustrations

3.2.1. Class I subset - technical illustrations. The Technical Illustration subset of ASME Y14.26M addresses entities that support the exchange of figures and illustrations normally found in a technical publication. In this application, emphasis is on visual clarity of figures and illustrations designed for human interpretation. The IGES Technical Illustrations Application Guide provides additional guidance on this usage of IGES.

3.2.1.1. Information requirements and data functionality. Two dimensional geometry and text annotation form the majority of data items although some non-geometric information is required as well. Information requirements for this application subset include (but are not limited to):

  1. Simple two dimensional geometry in the form of lines, circular arcs, conic arcs, and spline curves.
  2. Non-geometric attributes of line weight and line font.
  3. Text annotation.
  4. Data relationships, including the concept of subfigures.
3.2.1.2. ASME Y14.26M entity subset specification. Table I lists the entities of this subset. Only ASME Y14.26M entities which are enumerated in this table shall be used for representing technical publication illustration product definition data. Other valid ASME Y14.26M entity types may be present in the file as described by 3.1.1. Additional requirements are placed on the Global Section of a file, and certain field value restrictions are also placed on the range of parameter values in both the directory entry (DE) and the parameter data (PD) sections of a valid ASME Y14.26M file.

TABLE I. - ASME Y14.26M entity content of technical illustration subset

When the form column in Table I is blank for an entity which has multiple form numbers, all forms of that entity are included in the subset.
