Instructions:
  • Answer 46 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. Used by architect to design buildings to the client's wants and needs






2. A small angled surface formed between two surfaces.






3. A cylindrical recess around a hole - usually to receive a bolt head or nut






4. User coordinate system - used in the construction of 3D solids in AutoCAD






5. The amount of space occupied by a substance or object or enclosed within a container.






6. The sum of all the areas of all surfaces of a solid.






7. An orthographic drawing of multiple parts that shows relationship of parts to each other in a mechanism






8. Used to represent visible lines on a drawing






9. Used in architecture to show exterior views of buildings






10. A quadrilateral whose opposite sides are both parallel and equal in length






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






12. Exact drawing representation of a given thread type






13. Three dimensional drawing made up of equal angles of 120 degrees - most common 3-D drawing used in industry






14. A straight line from the center to the circumference of a circle or sphere.






15. To flip a shape over a line of symmetry and double the image.






16. Mass divided by volume.






17. A manufacturing process that forces material through a shaped opening.






18. The amount of matter an object contains.






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






20. An estimated cost used by architects to begin schematic design process






21. Pictorial drawing of mechanism to show how parts interrelated to each other






22. Turning around an axis or center point.






23. Simple method of drawing threads on an orthographic drawing






24. A two dimensional drawing of the front - top - and side views of an object






25. For a three-dimensional object - a line that cannot be seen because view of it is obstructed by part of the object or of another object






26. Gradual diminution of width or thickness in an elongated object.






27. To draw a figure around another touching it at points but not cutting it.






28. Counter space requirements on either side of sink






29. A regular oval shape traced by a point moving in a plane so that the sum of its distances from two other points is constant.






30. Three dimensional drawing where the front faces forward - and the depth dimensions go back at angles - usually 15 - 30 - or 45 degrees. Used when most information on drawing is on the front of the object.






31. Constant - non-numerical relationships between the parts of a geometric figure. Examples include parallel - perpendicular - and concentric.






32. To draw a figure inside another touching it at points but not cutting it.






33. To cut internal threads.






34. Actual size of framing member






35. A conical-shaped recess around a hole - often used to receive a tapered screw.






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






37. A straight line passing from side to side through the center of a circle or sphere.






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






39. Horizontal section through building - shows width and depth of building






40. Used to define specific size requirements of openings in the building






41. A drawing that shows an object as it appears to the human eye - includes isometric and perspective drawings






42. Amount of money that clients have to spend on cost of building






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






44. Nominal size of a framing member






45. A document that show the quantity of each type of direct material required to make a product






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