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

2. A change or correction made as a result of editing.

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

4. Make larger in area.

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

6. A preliminary visual of a possible idea for a design. Most thumbnail sketches are not full- size and have little detail. They are intended to quickly explore possible alternative designs.

7. A thin solid line perpendicular to a dimension line - indicating which feature is associated with the dimension.

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

9. At an angle of 90

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

11. A distinctive attribute or aspect.

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

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

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

15. 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

16. A triangle that has a 90 degree angle.

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

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

19. A full- scale working model used to test a design concept by making actual observations and necessary adjustments.

20. A closed geometric figure in a plane formed by connecting line segements endpoint to endpoint with each segment intersecting exactly two others. Polygons are classified by the number of sides they have - such as a triangle has three sides - a quadril

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

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

23. A line type that is used to indicate the axis of symmetry for a part or feature.

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

25. Parallel to the Y axis.

26. 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.

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

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

29. To add explanatory notes to.

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

31. A heavy solid line used on a drawing to represent the outline of an object.

32. A detailed description of the design and materials used to make something

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

34. Construct or manufacture an industrial product.

35. Placed directly on a feature to identify a specific size or may be connected to a feature in the form of a note.

36. 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

37. The distance from front to back.

38. Parallel to the X axis.

39. Lying in the same straight line.

40. 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.

41. Attach or position securely.

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

43. 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.

44. 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

45. Designed to be practical and useful.

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

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

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

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

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