    Correct Answer
    C. Solid modeling
    Explanation
    Solid modeling is a type of computer-aided design (CAD) technique that represents objects as three-dimensional (3D) solid models. It allows for the visualization and representation of the shape, area, and volume of an object. Solid modeling is commonly used in various industries such as architecture, engineering, and manufacturing, where accurate and detailed representations of objects are required. It provides a comprehensive view of an object's physical properties, enabling designers and engineers to analyze and manipulate the object in a virtual environment before it is manufactured.

    Correct Answer
    C. Rapid prototyping
    Explanation
    Rapid prototyping is the process of creating physical models or prototypes using CAD (Computer-Aided Design) data. It involves the use of 3D printing or other additive manufacturing technologies to quickly produce physical objects based on the digital design. This allows designers and engineers to evaluate and test the product's form, fit, and function before mass production. Rapid prototyping helps to reduce development time and costs, as well as enables iterative design improvements.

    _______________ is the surface shading used to give realism and depth to drawings.

    • A.

      S

    • B.

    • C.

      Rendering

    • D.

      S

    • E.

      S

    Correct Answer
    C. Rendering
    Explanation
    Rendering is the process of adding surface shading to drawings in order to create a realistic and three-dimensional appearance. It involves applying different colors, textures, and lighting effects to the objects in the drawing to give them depth and make them look more lifelike. By using rendering techniques, artists can create images that closely resemble the way objects would appear in the real world, adding a sense of realism and visual appeal to their drawings.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    ___________________ is the process of creating drawings needed so that a part or product can be manufactured or built.

    • A.

      S

    • B.

      Drafting

    • C.

      S

    • D.

      S

    • E.

      S

    Correct Answer
    B. Drafting
    Explanation
    Drafting is the process of creating detailed and accurate drawings that provide all the necessary information for the manufacturing or construction of a part or product. These drawings typically include precise measurements, dimensions, and specifications, as well as any necessary annotations or symbols. By creating these drawings, drafters ensure that the final product is produced correctly and meets the required standards and specifications. Drafting is an essential step in the overall design and production process, as it bridges the gap between concept and physical realization.
