  • 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.

17. The characteristic of being visible in one project view only.

18. User-defined fields that you add to families or projects and then share with other families and projects. They are stored in a file independently of a family file or Revit project; this allows you to access the file from different families or project

19. The Z-shaped line used in a drafting view or detail view to obscure parts of the drawing - to focus the drawing on a particular area. The following drafting view uses ______ above and below the section to obscure less intricate parts of the door asse

20. A line that is used to create a detail drawing. A ______ is visible only in the view in which it is drawn. You can use ______ as follows: To detail a view with part of the model visible - such as in a wall section or callout - In a drafting view to d

21. The clip plane that is at the side of the view farthest from the start point of an elevation view - a section view - a 3D view - or a walkthrough view. In the following floor plan - the green dotted line opposite the blue line represents the ______ f

22. A joint at a 45-degree angle - or evenly angled between the joined elements. ______ can apply to walls - wall sweeps - railings - structural floors - roof fascia - curtain wall mullions - and other model elements. When 2 walls join - you can edit the

23. A view-specific element that shows the size of an element or shows distances between elements or points in a building model. As you place an element - Revit Architecture displays temporary ______ so that you can place the element accurately. You can

24. The calculated adjustment in beam geometry that ensures beam ends meet without overlaying one another at a join. This is the visible gap seen in a steel beam connection within the Revit project.

25. The thickness of a line. You can specify the ______ as part of the line style for model lines - perspective lines - and annotation lines used in Revit Architecture. To define line weights - click Manage tab > Settings panel > ______.

26. A vertical plane in a wall that is used for dimensioning. You create a wall by sketching the ______ of the wall in a plan view or a 3D view. You specify what to use for the ______ in the element properties of the wall: the wall centerline - core cent

27. An intersection of 2 or more walls. In Revit Architecture - you can specify the type of join between walls.

28. A series of dashes or dots alternating with blank spaces. In the building industry - construction documents often use different line style conventions to convey information and to differentiate one line from another. For example - dimensions may use

29. A fixed starting point - or the point in a coordinate system where the axes intersect. In Revit Architecture - you use an ______ for many functions - such as positioning a linked project - creating a custom fill pattern - positioning a group - resizi
