Blocks and Paper Space

• 1.

A BLOCK is a grouped set of vector lines when inserted in a drawing.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
A block is indeed a grouped set of vector lines that can be inserted into a drawing. It allows for easy reuse of commonly used elements in a drawing, such as symbols or logos. By creating a block, the user can insert it multiple times in the drawing without having to redraw or copy-paste the lines each time. This helps in improving productivity and maintaining consistency in the drawing.

Rate this question:

• 2.

To convert a drawing into a BLOCK, i.e. a toilet, you use the command B.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The correct answer is true because in AutoCAD, the command "B" is used to convert a drawing into a block. A block is a collection of objects that are combined into a single named object. By creating a block, you can reuse the same object multiple times in a drawing, which can be useful for creating repetitive elements such as a toilet in architectural drawings.

Rate this question:

• 3.

If you create a BLOCK in an already existing drawing, you must WRITE BLOCK the object, meaning you will create a separate .dwg file for it. For example, when you WRITE BLOCK a drawing of a toilet, you will be creating a TOIL.dwg file.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When you create a block in an already existing drawing, you must write block the object, which means you will create a separate .dwg file for it. This allows you to reuse the block in other drawings without having to recreate it each time. In the given example, if you write block a drawing of a toilet, you will create a TOIL.dwg file specifically for that block. Therefore, the statement "If you create a BLOCK in an already existing drawing, you must WRITE BLOCK the object, meaning you will create a separate .dwg file for it" is true.

Rate this question:

• 4.

You can draw a block on its own in a NEW drawing file. In doing so, it will not be required to create a WRITE BLOCK, since you are already in the file with the drawn object. For example, you are only drawing a toilet in a NEW .dwg file and nothing else.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When drawing a block on its own in a new drawing file, there is no need to create a write block because the drawn object already exists in the file. In this example, if you are only drawing a toilet in a new .dwg file and nothing else, you can simply save the drawing without the need for any additional steps. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

Rate this question:

• 5.

The series for a BLOCK command is: B, Pick Point, Select Object(s), Convert to Block/Retain/Delete, OK.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The given series for a BLOCK command is B, Pick Point, Select Object(s), Convert to Block/Retain/Delete, OK. This means that when using the BLOCK command, the user is required to first type "B" to initiate the command, then pick a point on the screen, select the object(s) they want to convert into a block, specify whether they want to retain or delete the original objects, and finally press OK to complete the process. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct.

Rate this question:

• 6.

The pick point selection in a BLOCK command will become its insertion point.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When using the BLOCK command in a CAD software, the pick point selection determines the location where the block will be inserted. This means that the pick point selection becomes the insertion point for the block. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

• 7.

The pick point selection of a BLOCK command will eventually become 0,0.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The pick point selection of a BLOCK command refers to the initial point selected to place the block in a drawing. This means that when using the BLOCK command, regardless of where the user initially selects the pick point, the block will be placed at coordinates 0,0 in the drawing. Therefore, the statement is true.

Rate this question:

• 8.

You can streamline your process by creating a SEARCH PATH directory for your blocks folder in Autocad, so you do not have to BROWSE for your blocks.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Creating a SEARCH PATH directory for the blocks folder in Autocad allows users to streamline their process by eliminating the need to manually browse for blocks. By setting a search path, Autocad will automatically search for blocks in the specified directory, making it quicker and more efficient to access and use blocks in drawings. Therefore, the given answer, True, is correct.

Rate this question:

• 9.

A block is created on Layer 0 most of the time.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement suggests that a block is created on Layer 0 most of the time, however, this is not true. In most cases, a block is created on higher layers, such as Layer 1 or Layer 2, depending on the specific context or system being referred to. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

Rate this question:

• 10.

When you insert a block drawing(.dwg) into an existing file, such as a floor plan, you must specifically insert the block file on a layer other than 0.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When inserting a block drawing (.dwg) into an existing file, it is necessary to insert the block file on a layer other than 0. This is because layer 0 is typically reserved for the base drawing elements and should not be used for inserted blocks. By placing the block on a separate layer, it allows for easier management and organization of the different elements within the file.

Rate this question:

• 11.

The shortcut for BLOCK is B.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The given statement suggests that the shortcut for the word "BLOCK" is "B." Since the statement is true, it implies that when referring to the word "BLOCK," the shortcut or abbreviated form that can be used is "B."

Rate this question:

• 12.

The shortcut for WRITEBLOCK is W.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because the shortcut for the WRITEBLOCK command is indeed "W". This means that instead of typing out the full command, users can simply press the "W" key to access the WRITEBLOCK feature. This shortcut can save time and make it more efficient for users to perform the WRITEBLOCK command in whatever software or program they are using.
