Certified Drafting Exam

Subject : certifications
  • Answer 50 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. Lines that are not parallel to the axes.

2. Lines added to the spline to help illustrate and analyze the spline curvature.

3. Horizontal section through building shows width and depth of building

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

10. Fillets and rounds that have a curve radius that does not change.

11. A figure or character used in place of a word.

12. Constraints that establish geometric relationships and positions between one component face edge or axis and another component face edge or axis.

13. Title Identifies the project.

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

15. The heaviest line used in drafting acts as a "frame" for the drawing.

16. The individual parts and subassemblies used to create an assembly.

17. The figure formed by two lines coming together.

18. Collection of different lines which vary in line weight and type.

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

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

21. The initial model feature on which all others are based.

22. 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

23. Heavy dashed line used to show section views.

24. A 2D representation of an assembly.

25. 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.

26. Relief typically added to a sheet metal part to relieve stress or the tear that occurs when a portion of a piece of material is bent.

27. A geometric figure with a uniform circular cross-section through its entire length.

28. A line connecting opposite corners of a figure.

29. A line that defines an axis of symmetry or the center of a circular feature.

30. A dimensioning method that provides coordinates from established datums that are usually located at the corner of the part or the axis of a feature.

31. A line that normally runs between two extension lines has arrows or ticks at its ends and has a value at its center.

32. The distance from any point on a circle to the circles center.

33. A dimension used to define the angle between two lines.

34. A spiral or helix feature used primarily to create springs detailed threads and similar items.

35. A drawing that uses more than one orthographic view to depict a single object.

36. The part of the computer that processes input information.

37. Used in architecture to show exterior views of buildings

38. A dashed medium-weight line used to identify features that cannot be seen in a given view.

39. Restrictions applied to sketches to define sketch geometry in reference to other sketch geometry.

40. Depth of an object is drawn at any angle.

41. Parameters that control the size location and position of model elements including sketches and features.

42. The distance from one side of a circle to the other running directly through the circle's center

43. The center of model mass where balance occurs.

44. Code numbers assigned to a project.

45. Describes a polygon in which the flats are tangent to an imaginary circle; circumscribed polygons are measured across the polygon flats.

46. Heavy line used to outline visible edges of an object.

47. A curved surface connecting two surfaces which form an angle.

48. Information on the revisions including (at minimum) the date and initials of the person making the revision.

49. A shape usually circular that is connected to an assembly component by a leader. It contains an identification number or letter that refers to an item in the parts list.

50. A dimensioning method in which the size and location of features are given in reference to a datum.
