A Quiz On Sketching! Trivia - Quiz

Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the purpose of a rough sketch?

    • A.

      To show good proportion and excellent line values

    • B.

      To convince a client or management to accept and approve the ideas presented

    • C.

      To express thoughts quickly

    Correct Answer
    C. To express thoughts quickly
    Explanation
    A rough sketch is used to quickly express thoughts or ideas. It allows the artist to quickly capture their ideas on paper without worrying about perfect proportions or line values. The purpose of a rough sketch is not to show good proportion or excellent line values, as those can be refined in a more detailed drawing. Additionally, a rough sketch is not typically used to convince a client or management to accept and approve ideas, as it is more of a preliminary step in the creative process.

    What is the main advantage of using an overlay?

    • A.

      To speed up the design process

    • B.

      So you can create a sketch anywhere

    • C.

      To show good proportion and excellent line values

    Correct Answer
    A. To speed up the design process
    Explanation
    The main advantage of using an overlay is to speed up the design process. By using an overlay, designers can quickly test different design elements and make changes without having to redraw the entire sketch. This saves time and allows for more efficient iteration and refinement of the design.

    Which is NOT a major advantage of sketches over formal drawings?

    • A.

      To persuade people who make decisions about a product that an idea is good.

    • B.

      To clarify a complicated detail.

    • C.

      To show that there are many ways to look at or solve a problem.

    • D.

      It can be created just about anywhere.

    • E.

      To produce accurate technical drawings to guide workers in the production process.

    Correct Answer
    E. To produce accurate technical drawings to guide workers in the production process.
    Explanation
    Sketches are not intended to produce accurate technical drawings to guide workers in the production process. Sketches are quick, rough, and informal drawings that are used to communicate ideas, explore different possibilities, and convey the overall concept or essence of a design. They are not typically precise or detailed enough to be used as technical drawings for production purposes.

  • 4. 

    Which of the following is NOT one of the four ways to sketch straight lines?

    • A.

      Draw one long, continuous line.

    • B.

      Use a straight edge to draw the line.

    • C.

      Draw short dashes where the line should start and end and place the pencil point on one dash and draw toward the other.

    • D.

      Draw a series of strokes that touch each other or are separated by very small spaces.

    Correct Answer
    B. Use a straight edge to draw the line.
    Explanation
    The given answer is "Use a straight edge to draw the line." This is because using a straight edge to draw a line is actually one of the four ways to sketch straight lines. The other three ways mentioned in the options are valid methods of sketching straight lines.

    Which of the following is NOT true about construction lines?

    • A.

      Lines drawn with the softest lead possible to produce heavy visible lines.

    • B.

      Lines that are drawn with very little pressure on the point.

    • C.

      Lines drawn before the object lines to guide size and space.

    • D.

      Lines drawn to help estimate.

    Correct Answer
    A. Lines drawn with the softest lead possible to produce heavy visible lines.
    Explanation
    Construction lines are used as guidelines in the early stages of a drawing to help establish the size, proportions, and positioning of objects. They are typically drawn lightly and with very little pressure on the point of the pencil. The purpose of construction lines is to aid in the estimation and planning of the final drawing. Therefore, the statement "Lines drawn with the softest lead possible to produce heavy visible lines" is not true, as construction lines are meant to be light and easily erasable.

    Radius is defined as the distance from the center of a circle to its edge.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement accurately defines the concept of radius, which is indeed the distance from the center of a circle to its edge. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

    It is best to sharpen the end of your drawing pencil that has the grade marking.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because it is not necessary to sharpen the end of the drawing pencil that has the grade marking. The grade marking on a drawing pencil indicates the hardness or softness of the lead, and sharpening the end with the grade marking does not affect its performance or accuracy. The important factor in sharpening a drawing pencil is to have a sharp point for precise and controlled drawing, regardless of where the grade marking is located.

    The concurrent engineering design process uses a linear approach to solving problems in which each step builds upon the previous step.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The concurrent engineering design process does not use a linear approach to solving problems. Instead, it involves multiple teams working simultaneously on different aspects of a project, with constant communication and collaboration. This allows for faster problem-solving and decision-making, as well as the ability to address issues early on in the design process.

    A product's life cycle is its total life, from the conception of the idea of recycling of the materials from which it is made.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because a product's life cycle refers to the entire lifespan of a product, from its conception or design stage, through its production, distribution, use, and ultimately its disposal or recycling. This includes the recycling of the materials from which the product is made, as part of the overall life cycle process.

    An isometric sketch is based on three axes spaced equally at 120 degrees apart to show width, height, and depth of objects. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    An isometric sketch is a type of 3D representation that uses three axes spaced equally at 120 degrees apart. These axes represent the width, height, and depth of objects in the sketch. By using this technique, objects can be accurately and proportionally represented in three dimensions. Therefore, the given statement that an isometric sketch is based on three axes spaced equally at 120 degrees apart to show width, height, and depth of objects is true.
