  • 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.

15. A 2D drawing of a building model that shows the layout of walls - rooms - and other building components. A floor ______ presents a view of the building as though you are looking down on it from above - with the roof and intervening levels removed. A

16. A file format for fill patterns. A pattern file is a text file that contains definitions for model or drafting patterns in a project.

17. A graphic design that is applied to the surface of a model element. ______ represent the actual appearance of an element - such as brick coursing or ceramic tile on a wall. They are fixed with respect to the model and scale with the model.

18. A column that adds architectural interest to a building. An ______ can be used to model box-outs around structural columns and for decorative applications.

19. In Revit Architecture - a vertical or horizontal strip between panels of a curtain wall or curtain system.

20. Coordinate plotting grids for non-planar surfaces. Plotting locations in a 3D space is based on an XYZ coordinate system - while 2D Space is based on an XY system. Since surfaces are not necessarily planar - the UVW coordinate system is used to plot

21. The graphic design (fill pattern) used to represent a surface when shown in projection.

22. To choose an object in the drawing area. Many of the controls and tools that you use to modify an element in the drawing area are available only when an element is ______. In Revit Architecture - a ______ element displays in the ______ color - and co

23. Categories of elements that are derived from an imported drawing. You can change the visibility and graphic display of ______ through the visibility graphics menu.

24. The beginning of a sketched line.

25. A list of all instances of annotations (Also referred to as an annotation schedule). Note blocks are useful for listing notes that are applied to elements in a project.

26. A design methodology that maintains a single database of information about a building design. All information for a building design - from geometry to construction data - is stored in a project file. This information includes components used to desig

27. A copy of a view. Use ______ when a view of the building model is too large to display on a single sheet - and you need to divide the model into smaller segments that fit on the sheets. The ______ remains synchronous with the primary view and other d

28. A wall that consists of multiple vertical layers. Each layer can use a different material (such as concrete - insulation - and interior finish) and have a different function (such as structure - thermal layer - and substrate).

29. A wall that is inserted into another wall of a different type or construction. ______ are useful - for example - when you need to create a storefront on a building exterior. The following image shows a curtain wall embedded in a host wall.

30. An open file format that is supported by many CAD applications. A ______ file is a text file that describes a 2D drawing. The text is not encoded or compressed - so ______ files are generally large. Revit Architecture can import and export DXF files.
