Most calipers have a feeler bar for taking depth readings as well, though a gauge specially made for this purpose is more accurate and easier to read.

Unlike a perspective drawing, this type of projection does not distort or foreshorten any of the views. And because all the lines are drawn parallel and to their true-scale dimensions, it is much easier to draw than a perspective. FULL-SCALE DRAWINGS Except when designing the simplest of projects, I go on from these reduced-dimension drawings to produce a full-scale, three-view rendering. Seeing the piece at its actual size, I can, with greater confidence, tell if anything is still amiss with the design.

Note that each component is given a dimension and a part symbol. 33 Z0835 I CHAPTER 3 pg.
