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.

22. 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

23. 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

24. To display only a certain element or type of element - so that you can work with it in a particular view without being distracted by other elements in the design.

25. Arranged along a radius or arc. In Revit Architecture - when you create a ______ array - the elements in the array are arranged along a curve.

26. A parameter that defines a relationship between elements in a building design. For example - you can specify the top ______ for a wall as Level 2. If Level 2 moves upward - the height of the wall increases to maintain the relationship.

27. To secure a dimension or the location of an element so that it cannot be changed. When you select a ______ dimension or element - a ______ control displays next to it. The following drawing shows a ______ dimension.
