BS EN ISO 8560:2019 pdf – Technical drawings – Construction drawings – Representation of modular sizes, lines and grids.
1 Scope This document lays down rules for the representation of modular sizes, lines and grids on construction drawings. The basic module M is 100 mm (see ISO 1006). Generally, modular sizes are for use on design drawings, but can also be added to production drawings for manufacturing, orientation and location. 2 Normative references The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their content constitutes requirements of this document.

If necessary, the drawings should have a note indicating that modular sizes are being used. 5 Designations of modular sizes Drawings with sizes indicated in modules (instead of in millimetres or metres) should have a clear note explaining that this is the case.
6 Representation of modular lines and sizes 6.1 General Modular lines and sizes shall be represented in accordance with the following figures. 6.2 Modular and multimodular lines Modular and multimodular lines shall be drawn using a continuous line (see Figure 1). The lowest level shall be drawn using a continuous thin line. Figure 1 — Modular and multimodular lines 6.3 Modular line in an axial position Where necessary for reasons of clarity, a modular line in an axial position may be indicated by a chain line (see Figure 2).
