    What are the properties of a Layer?

    • A.

      Name, Green, .05 mm

    • B.

      Name, Line weight (color as bylayer), Line Type (thickness as bylayer)

    Correct Answer
    B. Name, Line weight (color as bylayer), Line Type (thickness as bylayer)
    Explanation
    The properties of a layer in this context refer to the attributes that can be assigned to a layer in a computer-aided design (CAD) software. These properties include the name of the layer, the line weight (color as bylayer), and the line type (thickness as bylayer). These properties allow users to organize and differentiate various elements within a CAD drawing, making it easier to manage and manipulate the design.

  • 4. 

    Is it possible to turn a layer On/Off and  Freeze/Thaw?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    It is possible to turn a layer On/Off and Freeze/Thaw in most design software or applications. Turning a layer On/Off allows you to show or hide the content on that layer, while Freezing a layer makes it invisible and unselectable, but still retains its properties. Thawing a layer makes it visible and selectable again. These functions are commonly used to control the visibility and editing options of different layers within a design project.

    What is the structure of a Layer name? (office standards)

    • A.

      Discipline, Existing/New, Item(3 or 4 letters ONLY)

    • B.

      Discipline, Existing/New, Item(more than 4 letters))

    Correct Answer
    A. Discipline, Existing/New, Item(3 or 4 letters ONLY)
    Explanation
    The structure of a Layer name according to office standards is Discipline, Existing/New, Item(3 or 4 letters ONLY). This means that the layer name should start with the discipline, followed by whether it is an existing or new item, and finally, the item name which should be limited to 3 or 4 letters only.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Why ONLY create 3 or 4 letters on the item name in a Layer?

    • A.

      When setting a current layer via typing, 3 or 4 letters are faster to type with one hand.

    • B.

      Because I am lazy.

    Correct Answer
    A. When setting a current layer via typing, 3 or 4 letters are faster to type with one hand.
    Explanation
    The reason for creating only 3 or 4 letters on the item name in a layer is that when setting a current layer via typing, it is faster to type with one hand. This allows for quicker and more efficient navigation within the layers, especially for individuals who prefer to use only one hand while typing. The statement "Because I am lazy" is not a valid explanation and does not provide a logical reason for the given answer.
