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

20. 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.
