A. Plan Drawings
Explanation
Plan drawings are objects that are drawn from above or a bird's-eye view and are kept two-dimensional. They provide a visual representation of a space or structure, typically used in architecture, engineering, and design. These drawings show the layout, dimensions, and relationships between different elements in a space, such as walls, doors, and furniture. They are an essential tool for planning and visualizing a project before it is constructed.

• A.

Extrude

• B.

Sweep

• C.

Object Info

• D.

### A selection of standard furniture symbols and icons can be found in the _______ palette

• A.

Symbols

• B.

Resource Browser

• C.

Object Info

• D.

Wireframe

B. Resource Browser
Explanation
The given question is asking where a selection of standard furniture symbols and icons can be found. The correct answer is "Resource Browser" because the Resource Browser is a tool or feature in a software program that allows users to access and manage various resources, such as symbols, icons, images, and other design elements. Therefore, it is likely that the furniture symbols and icons can be found in the Resource Browser palette.

Rate this question:

• 4.

### To combine two or more three(3)-dimensional forms a user must use the __________command

• A.

Resource Browser

• B.

• C.

• D.

Extrude

Explanation
To combine two or more three-dimensional forms, a user must use the "Add Solids" command. This command allows the user to merge multiple solid objects into one cohesive form. By selecting this command, the user can easily combine various three-dimensional shapes and create a unified object. The other options listed, such as Resource Browser, Add Surface, and Extrude, do not specifically cater to the task of combining three-dimensional forms.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### When drawing in plan view all drawings will be simple lines and lack any color. This type of drawing is refereed to as _______________.

• A.

Wall

• B.

Wireframe

• C.

Fast Render

• D.

Weird looking

B. Wireframe
Explanation
When drawing in plan view, all drawings are represented by simple lines without any color or shading. This type of drawing is commonly known as a wireframe. Wireframes provide a simplified representation of objects or structures, focusing on their overall shape and structure rather than their appearance. They are often used in architectural or engineering drawings to convey the basic layout and dimensions of a design.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Images created in this CAD class utilize points. These type of images are called ________

• A.

Gifs

• B.

Vector - Based

• C.

Jpeg

• D.

Raster

B. Vector - Based
Explanation
In a CAD class, images are created using points, lines, curves, and other mathematical equations to define shapes and objects. These images are known as vector-based images because they are based on mathematical formulas rather than individual pixels. Unlike raster images like Jpeg, which are made up of a grid of pixels, vector-based images can be scaled without losing quality. Therefore, the correct answer is Vector-Based.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### When trying to select multiple objects a user must hold the ________ Key.

• A.

Alt

• B.

Shift

• C.

Return

• D.

B. Shift
Explanation
When trying to select multiple objects, a user must hold the Shift key. Holding down the Shift key allows the user to select multiple objects by clicking on each object while keeping the Shift key pressed. This key modifier is commonly used in various software applications to enable the selection of multiple items at once.

Rate this question:

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The attributes palette is a tool that provides options for users to input color and pattern. This allows users to customize the appearance of various elements within a design or document. By selecting different colors and patterns from the attributes palette, users can create visually appealing and unique designs. Therefore, the statement "The attributes palette allows a user to input color and pattern" is true.

Rate this question:

### Vectorworks creates images using point and line segment.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Vectorworks is a computer-aided design (CAD) software that is commonly used for creating architectural and landscape designs. It allows users to create images by using points and line segments to define shapes and objects. This makes the statement "Vectorworks creates images using point and line segment" true.

Rate this question:

• 11.

### Users can create complex three dimensional forms by first selecting the add surface command.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement is false because users cannot create complex three-dimensional forms by simply selecting the add surface command. This command may be a part of the process, but it alone cannot create complex three-dimensional forms. Additional actions and commands would be required to create such forms.

None of the Above

B. Open GL
Explanation
OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a widely-used API (Application Programming Interface) for rendering 2D and 3D graphics. It provides a set of functions that allow developers to create and manipulate three-dimensional objects and view them in full color. By utilizing the hardware acceleration capabilities of modern graphics cards, OpenGL can render complex scenes quickly and efficiently, making it the fastest option for viewing rendered three-dimensional shapes in full color.

### When adding depth to a two dimensional shape in vectorworks a user must take advantage of the _______ command.

• A.

Extrude

• B.

Fly- Over

• C.

Z-Axis

• D.

Upper Torso

A. Extrude
Explanation
When adding depth to a two-dimensional shape in Vectorworks, the user must take advantage of the "Extrude" command.

Cutting away shapes from other shapes

D. Cutting away shapes from other shapes
Explanation
The clip surface command in Vectorworks allows users to cut away shapes from other shapes. This feature is useful when you need to remove or hide certain parts of an object or shape, creating a clean and precise cut. It enables users to easily modify and edit their designs by removing unwanted elements and creating cutouts or voids within shapes.

### When adding depth to a circle the end resulting form will be  a _______________

• A.

Sphere

• B.

Cube

• C.

Cylinder

• D.

Octagon

C. Cylinder
Explanation
When adding depth to a circle, the resulting form will be a cylinder. A cylinder is a three-dimensional shape with two circular bases that are parallel and congruent. The depth added to the circle forms the curved surface of the cylinder, while the original circle becomes the base of the cylinder.

### Three dimensional objects typically will have the following set of axis.

• A.

X,L,B

• B.

A,B,C

• C.

X,Y,Z

• D.

None of the above

C. X,Y,Z
Explanation
Three dimensional objects are represented in a three-dimensional coordinate system. The X, Y, and Z axes are used to determine the position of points in this system. The X-axis represents the horizontal direction, the Y-axis represents the vertical direction, and the Z-axis represents the depth or distance from the viewer. Therefore, the correct answer is X, Y, Z.
