Angular dimension line.

### What type of dimension line would you use to create a diameter dimension on a circular object?

Diameter dimension line.

### What is the correct method to place mechanical text within dimensions?

The dimension text is within the line.

### You are drawing a line using CAD and just typed @4<90", the line will be:

Drawn at an angle of 90 degrees.

Portrait mode.

Landscape mode.

Polyline.

### "right justified" text will start at the beginning point and:

Digitizer.

### You are drawing a line using CAD and just typed @5.555<55", the line will be:

5.555 units long.

Polyline.

Spline.

Properties.

Hatch.

Polar.

### On a CAD drawing when you use the "scale" command to double the size of an object:

Specify a scale factor of "2".

Array.

Stretch.

### Why is a BLOCK or SYMBOL usually drawn?

To save time, drawing space (byte file size) and regeneration time of drawing.

### You are moving a CAD object and just typed "@0,4,0", you will move the object:

4 units along the X axis

170', 110'

1:96.

INSERT

### Within a CAD drawing, what type of coordinates do you enter relative to the last point made?

Relative Coordinates.

1=48

### When you "stretch" a CAD object that has already been dimensioned, the dimension:

Number(s) will automatically adjust to the new object size.

1=96.

### In a CAD system, what type of coordinates are entered that always refer to the origin in the lower left corner of the screen?

Absolute coordinates.

### What coordinates in a CAD system are entered as a distance and as an angle from the last entered point?

Polar coordinates.

### What is the correct method used to place architectural text within dimensions?

The dimension text is placed above the line.

Spline.

1=24.

Full- size

### On a CAD drawing, to use the "mirror" command, you must specify the "mirror line":

Which defines the center axis of the object.

Not to scale

### When using a CAD system, the three options for coordinate input are:

Absolute, Relative, Polar.

Hardcopy.

X,Y,Z

One object.

Block/Group.

Mirror/Image

### You are moving an CAD object and just typed "@0,0,2", you will move the object:

2 units up the Z axis.

Library.

Block/Library.

### Which command places a previously defined block into a drawing?

The INSERT command

- 90

### You are moving a CAD object and just typed "@ 0,0,-2", you will move the object:

2 units down the Z axis.

### What type of dimension line would you use to create a horizontal dimension on an object?

Horizontal dimension line

### What type of dimension line would you use to create an aligned dimensioned object?

Aligned dimension line

4 units down.

Polar

3,2.

### The WBLOCK command writes a block file. The purpose of this function is that:

WBLOCK writes a BLOCK as a new drawing file so it may be inserted as a drawing file.

Relative.

Node.

Polar array

### CAD uses a Cartesian coordinate system for locating points. How do you enter specific points into a CAD system?

You may use Absolute Coordinates, Relative Coordinates or Polar Coordinates to locate points.

### When using coordinate angles in a CAD system, the < indicates an angle value of what Coordinate type?

The < indicates an angle value when using Polar coordinates

### In a CAD system, the coordinates at the lower left corner of the screen are:

Located at an Absolute Coordinate value of 0,0,0

### The EXPLODE command serves what type of purpose with both BLOCK and PLINE entities?

Explode splits a BLOCK and/or Pline into individual entities

72',48'

Example:
