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

2. A rectangle or polygon near the edge of the drawing sheet that defines the usable drawing area of the drawing sheet. Borders may also include zone numbers and center marks.

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

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

5. The center of model mass where balance occurs.

6. The figure formed by two lines coming together.

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

8. Piece of tracing paper that is placed on top of a sketch or drawing.

9. Method of projection showing a three-dimensional object in two dimensions by displaying various views.

10. A secondary menu that contains options related to the chosen menu item.

11. 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.

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

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

25. Code numbers assigned to a project.

26. Each part is approximately the right size in relation .to the other parts of the drawing.

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

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

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

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

31. Counter space requirements on either side of sink

32. Establishing assembly constraints including mate flush tangent and insert constraints by dragging one component to another component.

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

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

35. A CADD drawing aid formed by a network of uniformly spaced points or lines on the screen.

36. A dimension used to define an object or feature that is not vertical or horizontal.

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

38. A fine line composed of long and short dashes with spaces in between used to indicate the center of a symmetrical object.

39. The ratio of the size of the object as drwan to the object's actual size.

40. 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.

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

42. Circles that have the same center but different diameters.

43. The positions or locations of points on the X Y and Z planes.

44. A drawing of an object as it appears to the eye.

45. A circular curve in which all of the points are an equal distance from the center point.

46. An eight-sided figure with each side forming a 45

47. At right angles to a horizontal line.

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

49. Title Identifies the project.
