Points that are located along the X, Y, and Z axes that are relative to a point defined as 0,0,0.
Cartesian Coordinate System
A system of located points along X and Y axes relative to a strating point representing "zero X" and "zero Y."
The commands used to place geometry in an AutoCAD drawing.
The limits of an AutoCAD drawing define its drawing area; this is comparable to selecting the sheet size for the drawing.
The units measurement to be used in the creation of an AutoCAD drawing.
Commands used to display info about AutoCAD entities such as distance between two points, area of a closed figure likea rectangle or circle, or the volume of a 3D object.
In AutoCAD drawings, lines and other entities are drawn on layers.
Commands used to modify the geometry of an AutoCAD drawing.
Object Snap Settings
A technique used in the creation and editing of AutoCAD drawings that allows the user snap to exact points on an object.
Coordinates defined by a length and an angle that are relative to the last point defined.
In an AutoCAD drawing, the properties of an object include its color, line-weight, layer, line-type scale, and so forth.
Points that are located along the X, Y, and Z axes that are relative to the last point defined.
Running Object Snaps
Modes that are activated whenever the user is prompted to select the location of the point.
The characteristics of text used in a drawing such as font name, height, width factor, and oblique angle.
User Coordinate System
The point in an AutoCAD drawing where the X, Y and Z axes intersect (0,0,0).
1. How is the point with coordinates 0,0 represented in the graphics window of an AutoCAD drawing?
By using the UCS icon
2. What is the direction (North, South< East, West) of the default base angle setting in AutoCAD?
0 is east
3. What setting should be defined before the limits of an AutoCAD drawing are set?
The drawing units should be defined
4. Which of the following is not an AutoCAD object snap setting: Node, Tangent, Quadrant, or startpoint?
5. What is the name of the tool on the inquiry toolbar that is used to calculate the distance between two points?
Draw command used to create a multi-sided object
Modify command used to bevel the corners of objects
A type of coordinate defined by a length of an angle (East is 0 angles measured counterclockwise
AutoCAD setting that defines the size of the drawing area
A type of coordinate that is relative to 0,0
Modify command used to change the size of an object
Command that requires you to define two diagonal points
Units settings commonly used in mechanical drawings
Modify command used to round the corners of objects
A type of coordinate that is relative to the last point defined.
With each new software release, computer-aided design tools become more powerful, allowing AutoCAD users to accomplish higher-level design and drafting tasks. However, as CAD software evolves, it also drives changes in how technical drawings are created , viewed, shared, and managed. Persons employed in the CAD field must be committed to the principle of lifelong learning to keep up with the dynamic technology of this field.
