  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.

20. Controlled by parameters. In a Revit project - parameters define the relationships between elements of the building model. These relationships are created automatically by Revit Architecture and by you as you create the design. As you work in drawing

21. A divided surface on which geometric shapes have been applied. These patterns become part of the surface and (depending on their shape) will require a specific number of grid cells when applied.

22. Open Database Connectivity. ______ is a general export tool that works in conjunction with many software drivers. You can export information about model elements in a Revit project to an ______ database.

23. A column that supports a vertical load in addition to its own weight.

24. To explicitly join elements (such as walls or columns) to other modeling components. For example - you can ______ walls to floors - ceilings - and roofs. You can ______ columns to roofs - floors - ceilings - reference planes - structural framing memb

25. A model graphics style in which Revit Architecture shows the image with all surfaces shaded according to their material color settings and project light locations - and with all non-occluded edges drawn. A default light source provides illumination f

26. A defined set of elements that can be placed as a unit in a building design. ______ elements is useful when you need to create entities that represent repeating units or are common to many building projects (for example - hotel rooms - apartments - o

28. A mechanism for determining which elements are selected (for modification or manipulation) based on their family types or element parameters.

29. One or more masses in a Revit project. ______ allow you to explore design ideas by using shapes to conceptualize a building model. When your conceptual design is complete - you can add building elements directly to these shapes.
