  • 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.

18. Nested family which is applied to populate buildable architectural components across a large variety of geometric divided and patterned surfaces. It can contain both 2D and 3D geometry which create intelligent and flexible parametric components.

19. A schedule (list) of all drawing sheets in a project. The drawing list functions as a table of contents for the project. It is typically placed on the first sheet of a construction document set.

20. A method of defining 3D geometry for a building model. You begin a solid ______ by sketching 2D shapes on a plane. Revit Architecture then ______ the sketch between a start point and an endpoint. You can also create a void ______ by cutting a shape o

21. A horizontal plane that helps to define the view range in a floor plan or reflected ceiling plan. By default - the ______ is the same as the bottom clip plane. However - you can specify the ______ to show elements (such as foundation footings) below

22. A 2-dimensional plane used when designing families of model elements or placing elements in a building model.

23. A Revit element that contains all objects (such as blocks and xrefs) from an imported drawing. When you move the cursor over the imported objects - Revit Architecture shows information about the ______. You can explode an ______ to convert it into in

24. A wall that supports no additional vertical load except its own weight. ______ can be used to define and divide spaces in Revit Architecture.

25. Arranged along a radius or arc. In Revit Architecture - when you create a ______ array - the elements in the array are arranged along a curve.

26. A drawing file format supported by AutoCAD and other CAD applications. Revit Architecture can import and export ______ files.

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

28. A series of 2-dimensional lines and arcs that form a closed loop. Use ______ to define cross-sections for railings - balusters - soffits - cornices - and other sweep-defined objects.
