Our Breakline Symbol quickly cuts a line in your detail or drawing with a specialized block symbol. A common symbol in the construction industry, a breakline marks a break of undefined length in a linear object within a detail or drawing. Sections inside this break are typically identical on either side, such as a length of wall or fencing.
You can also place breakline symbols using our Discipline Graphics tool.
