A removed section is a section or partial section not directly projected from
the view containing the cutting plane and not revolved or turned from its
normal orientation. A removed section does not align with any other view,
but, sometimes appears on centerlines extended from the section cuts. Use
removed sections to show small details and to facilitate dimensioning. For
this reason, they are often drawn in enlarged scale. Label removed sections
alphabetically from left to right on the drawing and corresponding to the
letters at the end of the cutting plane line.
Precede the letters with the
abbreviation SECT or SECTION. To avoid confusion, do not use the letters
I, O, and Q. When you draw the removed section enlarged, indicate the
larger scale beneath the section title.
