20. The amount of fill (material) required to prepare a site for construction. For example - in the following drawing - the red area indicates the cut volume - and the blue area indicates the ______ required to level the site for a building.

21. For a subcomponent of a family - a property that defines its display (the line weight - line color - and line pattern). For example - you can assign one ______ to the wood trim of a window and another ______ to the glass.

22. The framed hole (opening) in a wall into which a manufactured window or door is installed. In Revit Architecture - you can specify the height and width of the ______ for a window type or door type.

23. To change the size of a model element. For example - in Revit Architecture you can ______ a wall or a foundation to adjust to changing specifications.

24. A component family that either has connectors or has the capability of hosting connectors that become functional when linked in a civil engineering application - such as AutoCAD Civil 3D.

25. An Autodesk product. ______ integrates a physical model for layout - coordination - and documentation with an independently editable analytical model for building design and analysis. Using a single building information model and dynamic linking to t

27. Comments or revision instructions from someone who reviewed a building design. When you publish construction documents as DWF files - the files can be ______ up electronically using a program such as Autodesk Design Review. Then the ______ can be lin

28. A user interface mechanism that defines the slope of a roof - floor - or ceiling plane - using a line in the direction of the slope. Use a ______ when you know the height at the top and bottom of the object's plane rather than the slope. For example

29. Text displayed in a callout tag when a reference callout is created in the plan view - or text displayed in a section head when a reference section is created in the plan view.

30. A tool that displays links to information about product updates and announcements. To access the ______ - click the satilite dish in the InfoCenter toolbar in the upper right corner of the Revit window.
