Design And Modeling Vocab

Subject : engineering
  • 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. Placed directly on a feature to identify a specific size or may be connected to a feature in the form of a note.

2. Used to describe the size and location of individual geometric shapes.

3. To move in a circle about a central axis.

4. The amount by which something is out of line.

5. Also called line width. The thickness of a line - characterized as thick or thin.

6. Parallel to the Y axis.

7. Cut off irregular or unwanted parts.

8. A method of realistic drawing in which the part of an object closest to the viewer is a planar face - and all the lines describing sides perpendicular to that face can be extended back to converge at one point - the vanishing point

9. To add explanatory notes to.

10. A form of pictorial drawing in which all three drawing axes form equal angles of 120 degrees with the plane of projection.

11. An iterative decision - making process that produces plans by which resources are converted into products or systems that meet human needs and wants or solve problems.

12. An outline of something as seen from one side.

13. A sequential record of the construction steps in a 3D modeling program

14. Turning around an axis or center point.

15. Restrictions applied to geometric entities; for example - horizontal - parallel - perpendicular - and tangent.

16. A model devised to expose its parts for study - training or testing.

17. Explanatory notes added to a drawing.

18. Views is shorthand for multiview projection - which is a system used to view an object. The six mutually perpendicular directions any object may be viewed are top - front - right- side - rear - left- side - and bottom. Top - front - and right- side v

19. At an angle of 90

20. A limit to a design process. Constraints may be such things as appearance - funding - space - materials - and human capabilities. A limitation or restriction.

21. A triangle that has a 90 degree angle.

22. The distance from front to back.

23. The surface that 2D profiles can be sketched on.

24. A visual - mathematical - or three- dimensional representation in detail of an object or design - often smaller than the original. A model is often used to test ideas - make changes to a design - and to learn more about what would happen to a similar

25. A rounded interior blend between two surfaces. Some uses are to strengthen joining surfaces or to allow a part to be removed from a mold.

26. Lines that are thin and used to connect a specific note to a feature.

27. A method of representing three- dimensional objects on a plane having only length and breadth.

28. A measurable extent - such as the three principal dimensions of an object of width - height - and depth.

29. Lines - planes - or surfaces side by side and having the same distance continuously between them.

30. Having the dimensions of height and width - height and depth - or width and depth only.

31. Parallel to the X axis.

32. A proportion between two sets of dimensions used in developing accurate - larger or smaller prototypes - or models of design ideas.

33. A rough drawing representing the main features of an object or scene and often made as a preliminary study.

34. A realistic way of drawing objects in three dimensions using a horizon line - a key edge - and two vanishing points.

35. A straight line or plane that touches a curve or curved surface at one point.

36. To imagine the visual form of an object or situation that one cannot see.

37. Designed to be practical and useful.

38. Thin lines that serve as guides while sketching or drawing.

39. Lying in the same straight line.

40. Circles or arcs that share the same center.

41. The documents that are required for something or that give evidence or proof of something. A drawing or printed information that contains instructions for assembling - installing - operating - and servicing.

42. Construct or manufacture an industrial product.

43. Dimensions that show the exact location of parts of an object.

44. A flat surface on which a straight line joining any two points would wholly lie.

45. A conical- shaped recess around a hole that is often used to receive a tapered screw.

46. Having the dimensions of height - width - and depth.

47. A point in space - usually located on the horizon - where parallel edges of an object appear to converge.

48. The measurement of someone or something from head to foot or from base to top.

49. Standardization of lines used on technical drawings by line weight and style.

50. The use of a computer to assist in the process of designing a part - circuit - building - etc.
