## Additional Engineering Flashcards

Term
 Aligned Dimensions
Definition
 Linear dimensions that are parallel to the surface being dimensioned.
Term
 Angular dimensions
Definition
 Dimensions that are used to describe angles.
Term
 Area Dimensions
Definition
 Calculates the area and perimeter of the object defined.
Term
 Baseline Dimensions
Definition
 Continues a linear, angular, or ordinate dimension from the second extension line of the previous or selected dimension.
Term
 Break
Definition
 Erases part of an object or splits an object in two.
Term
 Continuous Dimensions
Definition
 Continues a linear, angular, or ordinate dimension from the second extension line of the previous or a selected dimension.
Term
 Distance
Definition
 Space between two entities.
Term
 Explode
Definition
 Breaks a Block, Polyline, or other compound object into its component parts.
Term
 Linear Dimension
Definition
 Creates linear (Vertical or Horizontal) dimensions.
Term
 Locate Point
Definition
 Locates objects in reference to the Cartesian Coordinate system.
Term
 Ordinate Dimension
Definition
 Creates ordinate point dimensions.
Term
 Polygon
Definition
 Creates an equalateral closed polyline.
Term
 Polyline
Definition
 creates two-dimensional polylines.
Term
 Scale
Definition
 Enlarges or reduces objects equally in the X,Y, and Z directions.
Term
 Sketching
Definition
 In the part ing, sketching entails using lines, polylines, circles, arcs, and rectangles. The sketch is the basic design element that defines the approximate size and shape of features in your part. Part precision is obtained by profiling, applying geometric constraints, and dimensioning.
Term
 Tolerance
Definition
 An allowance, given with a premissable range of the minimum and maximum, for the dimension of a manufactured object.
Term
 Trim
Definition
 Trims objects at a cutting edge defined by other objects.
