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

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

3. 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

12. Used in architecture to show exterior views of buildings

13. The amount of matter an object contains.

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

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

16. Exact drawing representation of a given thread type

17. To cut internal threads.

18. Nominal size of a framing member

19. Used to represent visible lines on a drawing

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

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

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

23. 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.

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

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

26. Turning around an axis or center point.

27. A small angled surface formed between two surfaces.

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

29. Counter space requirements on either side of sink

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

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

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

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

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

35. 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

36. Actual size of framing member

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

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

39. Mass divided by volume.

40. Used by architect to design buildings to the client's wants and needs

41. Simple method of drawing threads on an orthographic drawing

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

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

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

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

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