Hidden Lines

Hidden lines are used to represent surfaces that are not directly visible in the orthographic view. Without hidden lines all information about the features that are not directly visible would be lost. Whenever possible show intersections and corners of hidden lines as touching lines, not gaps. There should be a gap at the transition between line types so that it is clear where one line type starts and the other ends.
