  • 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 cylindrical recess around a hole - usually to receive a bolt head or nut

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

3. Mass divided by volume.

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

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

6. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

14. A straight line passing from side to side through the center of a circle or sphere.

15. Turning around an axis or center point.

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

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

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

19. Actual size of framing member

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

21. Counter space requirements on either side of sink

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

23. Used in architecture to show exterior views of buildings

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

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

26. To cut internal threads.

27. Exact drawing representation of a given thread type

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

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

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

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

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

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

35. 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

36. 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.

37. Simple method of drawing threads on an orthographic drawing

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