1. The main characteristic of parametric modeling involves the use of constraints. What are the

two types of constraints used in AutoCAD?

The two types of constraints used in AutoCAD are dimensional constraints and geometric

constraints.

2. What is the main difference between the traditional geometric method versus the use of

parametric drawing tools?

With the traditional method, geometric definitions such as dimensions are applied at the time

that the objects are created, and are set. With the parametric drawing method, dimensions can be

applied after the object is created and can be repeatedly changed as needed.

3. List and describe three geometric constraint commands you have used in the tutorial.

1) perpendicular - This constraint makes sure that two lines are always perpendicular to one

another.

2) parallel - This constraint makes sure that two lines are always parallel to one another.

3) tangent - This constraint makes sure that any object such as a line or another circle is always

tangent to a circle.

4. What do the dimensional constraint methods allow us to do?

The dimensional constraint methods allow us to dimension an object after it has been created.

5. Will the geometric constraint symbols be printed when we print the drawing?

No, these symbols won't be printed when we print the drawing.

6. How do we turn off the display of the applied constraints?

To turn off the display we click on the hide all command in the toolbar.

7. Besides using a co-linear constraint to align two lines, what other options can we use to align

two lines?

We can also use a parallel constraint or a perpendicular constraint to align two lines.

8. When will AutoCAD automatically remove some of the applied constraints?

AutoCAD will automatically remove some of the applied constraints if you attempt to overconstrain the drawing.

9. Besides applying geometric constraints individually, what other option is available to constrain

precisely constructed geometry in AutoCAD?

We can also use the Auto constrain method, which will automatically apply necessary

constraints to an existing object.

10. Can the applied constraints be manually removed? How is this done?

Yes the applied constraints can be manually removed. This is done by highlighting the

constraint and using the erase command or the right click delete command.

11. When a design is created or changed, a drawing will be in one of three states. What are the three

states? What are the differences between the three states?

The three states are:

Unconstrained No constraints are applied to the constructed geometry.

Under constrained Some constraints, but not all, are applied to the constructed geometry.

Fully constrained All relevant geometric and dimensional constraints have been applied to

the constructed geometry.

Ch 9

1. What is an auxiliary view and why would it be important?

An auxiliary view shows a line of sight view that is perpendicular to an inclined surface, and is

used to show the correct dimensions of such a surface. These views are important because they

ensure that we use the correct dimensions for inclined surfaces.

2. When is a line viewed as a point? How can a line be shown in true length?

A line is viewed as a point and the view of the line is changed. A line can be shown in true

length when it is projected in an auxiliary view.

3. What is a GRIP? What are the advantages of using grips?

GRIPS are key control locations such as endpoints or midpoints of lines and arcs. Using GRIPS,

we can can stretch, move, mirror, scale, rotate, and copy objects without having to enter

commands.

4. List three GRIPS editing commands you have used in the tutorial.

In this tutorial we used the rotate, copy, and stretch GRIP commands.

Polar tracking helps us to create objects at precise positions and angles relative to other objects.

6. Find the area A defined by the two arcs, as described in the figure below.

Answer

7. Find the area A defined by the three arcs, as described in the figure below.
