  • 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.
1. To draw without the aid of drafting instruments.

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

3. The pivot point around which the selected geometry is copied.

4. A drawing that uses more than one orthographic view to depict a single object.

5. The part of the computer that processes input information.

6. User coordinate system - Used in the construction of 3D solids in AutoCAD
