  • 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.

15. To disassemble an import symbol (which represents imported geometry) into its next highest level of elements.

16. A filter with user-defined rules that determine the visibility/graphics settings for model elements in a particular view. For example - you can create a ______ that displays all fire-rated walls as solid red in a plan view to distinguish them from no

17. A building component consisting of panels - curtain grids - and mullions. In Revit a ______ usually does not have a rectangular shape.

18. The graphic shape used to represent the end of a dimension - such as an arrow or a slash.

19. A view of a floor plan or a reflected ceiling plan for a building model.

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

21. A class of elements in a category. A ______ groups elements with a common set of parameters (properties) - identical use - and similar graphical representation. Different elements in a ______ may have different values for some or all properties - but

22. A mechanism for eliminating or including the display or selection of elements in a view - based on their properties. In Revit Architecture - you can use ______ in the following ways: To select or deselect elements in a view. - To override the graphic

23. A curved line drawn by specifying and positioning a number of points. Revit Architecture uses a mathematical polynomial function to smoothly join the segments at these points - creating the curved line.

24. A graphic design for surfaces that are cut or shown in projection. You can use ______ for model patterns and drafting patterns.

25. Pre-built components - such as cabinets and cupboards for a kitchen or bathroom. Revit Architecture provides family types for ______.

26. A Revit feature that allows you to specify a value for a dimension as you sketch an element in a view. You specify a start point for the element - start sketching in the desired direction - type the exact dimension desired - and press Enter. Revit Ar

27. The view on which one or more dependent views are based. The dependent views remain synchronous with the ______and other dependent views - so that when view-specific changes (such as view scale and annotations) are made in one view - they are reflect

28. A group of view-specific elements that are associated with a model group. For example - an ______ may be comprised of door tags and window tags.

29. A list of keynote numbers and the corresponding keynote text. If you choose to annotate model elements using keynote numbers only - you can use a ______ to provide descriptive text for each keynote number. By using a keynote legend - you avoid clutte

30. To move a component from one host to another. For example - you can use the Rehost tool to move a window from one wall to another wall.

31. A series of dashes or dots alternating with blank spaces. In the building industry - construction documents often use different line style conventions to convey information and to differentiate one line from another. For example - dimensions may use
