Part 8

Module 41: Competency Test 8 Open Book

Learning Outcomes

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

  1. Within a two hour time limit, complete a written exam and the 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.

Step 1

 Open drawing: AutoCAD 2D Lab 34-1. (Figure Step 1)

Figure Step 1

Step 2

Using the SAVEAS command, save the drawing with the name: AutoCAD 2D Lab 41-1.

Step 3

In the layout: Module Layout A3, on layer: Viewport, create two viewports as shown in the figure. Set the scale as follows and lock their display. (Figure Step 3)

Left Viewport Scale: 1:1.5

Right Viewport Scale: 2.5:1

Figure Step 3

Step 4

Using Figure Step 4:

  • A In Paper space, on layer: Center Lines, add the center
  • B In Paper space, on layer: Dimensions, add the dimensions in each
  • C In Paper space, on layer: Text, add the title and scale of the views. Use your own text style and text height. (Figure Step 4)
Figure Step 4
AUTHOR’S COMMENTS: All dimensions and text MUST be in Paper space. Ensure that you snap to model space objects when inserting the dimensions.

Step 5

Turn Layer: Viewport off and fill in the titleblock. (Figure Step 5)

Figure Step 5

Step 6

Change to Model space. Your figure should match the figure. (Figure Step 6)

Figure Step 6

 Step 7

Save and close the drawing.
