Hiding clutter lines on drawings?

Question asked by Shane Davis on Sep 22, 2017

Often times I have drawing views  where lines are visible "thru" the feature that I am adding dimensions to (such as holes, slots, etc.)

Is it an acceptable practice to hide those lines on the drawing view to increase clarity?

Are there any standard notations used for this (such as: "some lines in this view removed for clarity")?

There is some talk about hidden lines in ASME Y14.5 But I don't see any samples or direction for this situation?

Some of it could be fixed with "section views" but that adds more views to an already crowed print sometimes.


Any input would be appreciated...
