Autocad Test 2

question

Explain how a miter line can assist us in creating orthographic views.
answer

It helps transfer measurements between the top view and side view.
question

Describe the Autocad autosnap and auto track options.
answer

Symbols-Automatically displays object snap type at the object snap location. ToolTip- Automatically displays the object snap type below cursor. Magnet-Locks cursor on a snap point when cursor is near point.
question

List and describe two autocad commands that can be use to get geometric information about constructed objects.
answer

List command- shows detailed information about geometric objects. Properties command- provides detail information about geometric objects, and modifications can also be done quickly
question

What does the running object snaps option allow us to do?
answer

Object snaps that are \”running\” in the background, allowing you to hover over the object in order to snap to preselected parts
question

Explain what an orthographic view is and why it is important to engineering graphics.
answer

Orthographic views are two-dimensional drawings used to represent or describe a three-dimensional object. It is important to engineers so that you can see the object in different perspectives.
question

Why are dimensions and notes important to a technical drawing?
answer

Gives details about object drawn
question

List and describe some of the general-dimensioning practices.
answer

Detail drawings should only contain dimensions that are necessary to make the design. Dimensions for the same feature of design should be given only once in the same drawing.
question

Describe the procedure in setting up a new Dimension Style.
answer

in the dimension toolbar,pick dimension style.Click on the new button.Then enter a new dimension style name and pick continue.
question

What is the special way to create a diameter symbol when entering a dimension text?
answer

In the dimension tool bar, click on diameter dimension icon.Pick the cirlce and position the dimension.
question

answer

question

What is the difference between the autocad model space and the paper space?
answer

In modelspace you draw things at their true size,In paperspace you also draw things at their true size but this literally represents your plot onto a piece of paper
question

Why should we use the autocad paper space?
answer

So that the ployyed hardcopy is exactly what you want.
question

What does the ortho option allow us to do?
answer

draw lines which are either vertical or horizontal.
question

Which autocad command allows us to view and change properties of constructed geometric objects?
answer

question

What is the difference between an autocad drawing file(.dwg) and an autocad template file(.dwt)?
answer

The filename extension
question

What does the divide command allow us to do?
answer

places objects evenly along a path, dividing the path in the number of segments that you assign
