Part 2

Module 11: Competency Test 2 Open Book

Learning Outcomes

When you have completed this module, you will be able to:

  1. Within a one-hour time limit, complete a written exam and a lab exercise without the aid of a key.

The AutoCAD 2D book was written with competency based modules. What that means is that you have not completed each module until you have mastered it. The Competency Test module contains multiple choice questions and a comprehensive lab exercise to test your mastery of the set of modules that you completed. There are no answers or keys supplied in a Competency Test module since it is meant to be checked by your instructor. If there are any parts of this module that you have trouble completing, you should go back and reread the module or modules containing the information that you are having trouble with. If necessary, redo as many lab exercises required until you fully understand the material.

If you are Completing this book:

  • Without the Aid of an Instructor, complete the written test and the lab exercise.
  • In a Classroom with an Instructor, the instructor will give instructions on what to do after this module has been completed.

Lab Exercise 11-1 OPEN BOOK

Drawing Name Template Units
AutoCAD 2D Lab 11-1 2D Metric Millimeters
Layering Scheme
Layer Name Objects on Layer Color
Construction Construction objects 253
Object Line, circle and arcs Red

Step 1

Setup the layers using the Layering Scheme shown above.

Step 2

Draw the object shown in the figure using the layering scheme. (Figure Step 2A and 2B)

Figure Step 2A
AUTHOR’S COMMENTS: Do not delete the construction lines.


Figure Step 2B

Step 3

Draw all construction objects on layer: Construction.

AUTHOR’S COMMENTS: Draw the construction lines (shown as dashed lines in the drawing for clarity) by snapping to the endpoints of the lines, endpoint of the 60 radius arc and the center of the 5 diameter circle. Locate the 10 diameter circles with their center located at the intersections of the construction lines.

Step 4

When complete, freeze layer: Construction.

Step 5

Save and close the drawing.
