    What does the escape key do in AutoCAD?

    • A.

      Returns to your previous zoomed view

    • B.

      Cancels out of the current command

    • C.

    B. Cancels out of the current command
    Explanation
    The escape key in AutoCAD is used to cancel out of the current command. This means that if you are in the middle of a command and decide you want to stop or undo it, you can simply press the escape key to exit the command without making any changes. This can be helpful in situations where you make a mistake or change your mind about a specific action and want to revert back to the previous state.

    When drawing in AutoCAD, what layer does your new geometry land on?

    • A.

      0

    • B.

      A-Wall

    • C.

      Object Layer

    • D.

      The newest layer created

    • E.

      The current layer

    Correct Answer
    E. The current layer
    Explanation
    When drawing in AutoCAD, the new geometry will land on the current layer. This means that whatever layer is currently selected or active will be the layer on which the new geometry is created. This allows users to easily control and organize their drawings by assigning different objects to different layers.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    In AutoCAD, where do you create and manage layers? 

    • A.

      Layer Settings Manager

    • B.

      Layer Options Manager

      Layer Status Manager

    • D.

      Layer Properties Manager

    • E.

      Command Prompt

    Correct Answer
    D. Layer Properties Manager
    Explanation
    In AutoCAD, the Layer Properties Manager is where you create and manage layers. This tool allows you to control various properties of layers such as their name, color, linetype, and visibility. You can also use the Layer Properties Manager to organize layers into groups and set layer properties for multiple layers at once. It provides a comprehensive interface for efficiently managing layers in your AutoCAD drawings.

    In AutoCAD, what does Ortho mode do?

    • A.

      Keeps the cursor at 5 degree increments

    • B.

      It is a type of line

    • C.

      Keeps the cursor moving either vertical or horizontal

    • D.

      It is a workspace

    • E.

      It turns on all available snaps

    Correct Answer
    C. Keeps the cursor moving either vertical or horizontal
    Explanation
    Ortho mode in AutoCAD restricts the cursor movement to either vertical or horizontal directions. This means that when Ortho mode is enabled, the cursor can only move in straight lines along the vertical or horizontal axes. This can be useful when drawing or editing objects that require precise alignment or straight lines.

    Where would you find the settings for your dimensions in an AutoCAD drawing?

    • A.

      Dimension Styles

    • B.

      Dimension Options

    • C.

      Dimension Types

    • D.

      Dimension Units

    • E.

      Dimension Characteristics

    Correct Answer
    A. Dimension Styles
    Explanation
    In AutoCAD, the settings for dimensions in a drawing can be found in Dimension Styles. Dimension Styles allow users to define various properties of dimensions such as text height, arrowhead style, and dimension line style. By creating and modifying Dimension Styles, users can easily apply consistent and customized dimension settings throughout their drawings.

    Which is not a valid zoom command in AutoCAD?

    • A.

      Window

    • B.

      Realtime

    • C.

      Down

      Previous

    • F.

      Dynamic

    • G.

      Scale

    Correct Answer
    C. Down
    Explanation
    The "Down" command is not a valid zoom command in AutoCAD. AutoCAD offers various zoom commands such as "Window" to zoom in on a specific area, "Realtime" to continuously zoom in or out, "Extents" to zoom to the extents of the drawing, "Previous" to return to the previous view, "Dynamic" to dynamically zoom in or out based on the cursor movement, and "Scale" to zoom in or out by a specified scale factor. However, there is no "Down" command specifically for zooming in AutoCAD.

    There are two methods for placing a Hatch in an AutoCAD drawing. One is selecting boundary objects and the other is: 

    • A.

      Remove boundary objects

    • B.

      Pick points

    • C.

      Island detection

    • D.

      Draw hatch lines

    • E.

      Identify boundary hatch

    Correct Answer
    B. Pick points
    Explanation
    The other method for placing a Hatch in an AutoCAD drawing is by picking points. This means that instead of selecting boundary objects, the user can manually specify the points where they want the hatch to be placed. This method allows for more flexibility and precision in placing the hatch, as the user can choose specific points on the drawing to define the hatch boundaries.

    Correct Answer
    D. Computer-aided design
    Explanation
    The CAD in AutoCAD stands for computer-aided design. AutoCAD is a software program used for creating 2D and 3D computer-aided design (CAD) drawings. It allows users to create precise and detailed drawings for various industries such as architecture, engineering, and manufacturing. The term "computer-aided design" refers to the use of computer technology to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design.

    The Offset command allow you to make copies that are either:

    • A.

      Parallel or perpendicular

    • B.

      Parallel or concentric

    • C.

      Parallel or tangent

    • D.

      Concentric or tangent

    Correct Answer
    B. Parallel or concentric
    Explanation
    The Offset command in CAD software allows users to create copies of objects that are either parallel or concentric. This means that the copies can be created at a consistent distance from the original object, forming parallel lines, or they can be created with the same center point as the original object, forming concentric shapes. This command is useful for creating symmetrical designs or for creating objects with consistent spacing.

    The Fillet command can be used to:

    • A.

      Trim a line

    • B.

      Create a radius or round between two non-parallel line segments

    • C.

      Cut a corner off a rectangle

      Change the current layer

    Correct Answer
    B. Create a radius or round between two non-parallel line segments
    Explanation
    The Fillet command in CAD software is used to create a radius or round between two non-parallel line segments. It is a handy tool for adding curves or smoothing out sharp corners in a design. This command helps to enhance the aesthetics and functionality of the design by creating a smooth transition between two lines.
