  • Answer 46 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • 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.
1. A straight line passing from side to side through the center of a circle or sphere.

2. Horizontal section through building - shows width and depth of building

3. A drawing that shows an object as it appears to the human eye - includes isometric and perspective drawings

4. Three dimensional drawing that depth lines disappear to a vanishing point. Used mainly in architectural presentations

5. A two dimensional drawing of the front - top - and side views of an object

6. To cut internal threads.

7. Gradual diminution of width or thickness in an elongated object.

8. A conical-shaped recess around a hole - often used to receive a tapered screw.

9. Simple method of drawing threads on an orthographic drawing

10. Vertical cut through house - used to show construction components of building

11. For a three-dimensional object - a line that cannot be seen because view of it is obstructed by part of the object or of another object

12. To draw a figure around another touching it at points but not cutting it.

13. Mass divided by volume.

14. The amount of space occupied by a substance or object or enclosed within a container.

15. Used in AutoCAD to show various materials in sectional drawings

16. Turning around an axis or center point.

17. To flip a shape over a line of symmetry and double the image.

18. Used by architect to design buildings to the client's wants and needs

19. Used in perspectives for determining the direction of the depth lines

20. An orthographic drawing of multiple parts that shows relationship of parts to each other in a mechanism

21. Amount of money that clients have to spend on cost of building

22. Exact drawing representation of a given thread type

23. A straight line from the center to the circumference of a circle or sphere.

24. Used to represent visible lines on a drawing

25. A quadrilateral whose opposite sides are both parallel and equal in length

26. User coordinate system - used in the construction of 3D solids in AutoCAD

27. Three dimensional drawing made up of equal angles of 120 degrees - most common 3-D drawing used in industry

28. A line used to represent the middle of a circle in engineering drawings

29. The sum of all the areas of all surfaces of a solid.

30. Counter space requirements on either side of sink

31. Actual size of framing member

32. An estimated cost used by architects to begin schematic design process

33. Nominal size of a framing member

34. Constant - non-numerical relationships between the parts of a geometric figure. Examples include parallel - perpendicular - and concentric.

35. To draw a figure inside another touching it at points but not cutting it.

36. A small angled surface formed between two surfaces.

37. A document that show the quantity of each type of direct material required to make a product

38. A regular oval shape traced by a point moving in a plane so that the sum of its distances from two other points is constant.

39. Used to define specific size requirements of openings in the building

40. Pictorial drawing of mechanism to show how parts interrelated to each other

41. A cylindrical recess around a hole - usually to receive a bolt head or nut

42. A manufacturing process that forces material through a shaped opening.

43. Used to make lines of varying colors and widths on CAD drawings

44. Three dimensional drawing where the front faces forward - and the depth dimensions go back at angles - usually 15 - 30 - or 45 degrees. Used when most information on drawing is on the front of the object.

45. The amount of matter an object contains.

46. Used in architecture to show exterior views of buildings
