      Typing in the command line

    • B.

      The pull down menus

    • C.

      The Ribbon

    • D.

      The Toobars

    • E.

      All the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All the above
    Explanation
    All the above options mentioned (typing in the command line, using the pull down menus, accessing the Ribbon, and utilizing the Toolbars) are ways to call a command. These methods provide different ways for users to interact with a software or system and execute specific commands or actions.

    Can a shape became a viewport?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A shape can become a viewport if it is used as a container to display content within a specific area of a webpage or application. By setting the dimensions and properties of the shape, it can act as a window through which the content is viewed. This allows for control over what is visible and how it is displayed within the shape, making it function as a viewport.

    Who is AutoCAD's main competitor in the CAD software industry?

    • A.

      TurboCAD

    • B.

      Microstation

    • C.

      DesignCAD

    Correct Answer
    B. Microstation
    Explanation
    Microstation is AutoCAD's main competitor in the CAD software industry. Both AutoCAD and Microstation are popular CAD software programs used for designing and drafting in various industries. They offer similar features and capabilities, making them direct competitors in the market. DesignCAD and TurboCAD are also CAD software programs, but they are not as widely used or as direct competitors to AutoCAD as Microstation is.

    What is Paper Space?

    • A.

      The empty space on plotted paper.

    • B.

      The thickness of the plotted paper.

    • C.

      The area to set a drawing to plot that was created in Model Space using a viewport.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. The area to set a drawing to plot that was created in Model Space using a viewport.
    Explanation
    Paper Space refers to the area in computer-aided design (CAD) software where a drawing can be set up for plotting. It is a virtual space that allows users to create and arrange multiple views of a drawing, such as plans, elevations, and sections, on a single sheet of paper. These views are typically created in Model Space, which is the 3D environment where the actual drawing is created, and then placed in Paper Space using viewports. This allows for better organization and presentation of the drawing before it is printed or plotted. Therefore, the correct answer is "The area to set a drawing to plot that was created in Model Space using a viewport."

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The main space to draw in AutoCAD at full scale is Model Space.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The main space to draw in AutoCAD at full scale is Model Space. In AutoCAD, Model Space is where the actual drawing is created and it represents the real-world size and dimensions of the objects. It is the primary working area where users can create and edit their designs. Model Space allows users to accurately define the size and scale of their drawings, and it is where all the geometry and annotations are placed. On the other hand, Paper Space is used for creating layouts, plotting, and printing purposes.

    What is the Ribbon for?

    • A.

      An object to put in your hair.

    • B.

      An object that you put in a typewriter.

    • C.

      To use commands for drawing, modifying and setting layers.

    • D.

      For typing shoes.

    Correct Answer
    C. To use commands for drawing, modifying and setting layers.
    Explanation
    The ribbon is used to access commands for drawing, modifying, and setting layers. It is a feature commonly found in software programs, such as graphic design or CAD tools, where users can find a variety of tools and options to create and manipulate different elements in their designs. The ribbon provides a convenient and organized way to access these commands, making it easier for users to navigate and utilize the software's features effectively.

    The acronym CAD means Computer-Aided-Design.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The acronym CAD stands for Computer-Aided-Design, which refers to the use of computer software to assist in the creation, modification, analysis, or optimization of a design. This technology is commonly used in various fields such as architecture, engineering, and manufacturing to enhance the design process and improve efficiency. Therefore, the statement "The acronym CAD means Computer-Aided-Design" is true.

    BIM stands for...

    • A.

      Building Information Model.

    • B.

      Being In Mode.

    • C.

      Bought In Missouri.

    • D.

      Bright Incandescent Matter

    Correct Answer
    A. Building Information Model.
    Explanation
    BIM stands for Building Information Model, which refers to a digital representation of a building or infrastructure project. It is a collaborative process that involves creating and managing 3D models with detailed information about various aspects of the construction, including geometry, spatial relationships, quantities, and properties. BIM enables architects, engineers, and construction professionals to visualize and simulate the project before it is built, leading to improved coordination, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness throughout the entire lifecycle of the project.
