Architect’s scale a specialized ruler designed to facilitate the drafting and measuring of architectural drawings, such as floor plans and orthographic projections.
Assembly drawing A drawing view of a part or assembly.
Axis A straight line that can be used to create model geometry, features, or patterns. It can be made in a number of different ways, including using the intersection of two planes.
Center line marks, in phantom font, an axis of symmetry in a sketch or drawing.
Chamfer Bevels a selected edge or vertex.
Coordinates A system of planes used to assign Cartesian coordinates to features, parts, and assemblies.
Detail drawing A 2D representation of a 3D part or assembly.
Dimension line references the dimension text to extension lines indicating the entity being measured.
Drill produce a hole in something
Engineer’s scale a tool for measuring distances and transferring measurements at a fixed ratio of length.
Extension line The line extending from the model indicating the point from which a dimension is measured.
Fillet An internal rounding of a corner or edge in a sketch, or an edge on a surface or solid.
Front view or elevation the part of it that faces you, or that faces forward, or that you normally see or use.
Grid a pattern of horizontal and vertical lines spaced out at regular intervals, forming squares or rectangles.
Hidden line A view mode in which all edges of the model that are not visible from the current view angle are removed from the display.
Isometric drawing a two-dimensional representation for viewing a three-dimensional object with the three primary lines equally tilted away from the viewer.
Layer Objects are organized onto these for organizational purposes and ease of drawing, viewing and editing.
Mating parts A geometric relationship, such as coincident, perpendicular, tangent, and so on, between parts in an assembly.
Object snap allows you to snap onto a specific object location when you are picking a point.
Orthographic projection of a single view of an object (as a view of the front) onto a drawing surface in which the lines of projection are perpendicular to the drawing surface.
Perspective The view normally seen by the eye.
Rapid prototyping a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data.
Schedule A plan for carrying out a process or procedure, giving lists of intended events and times.
Schematic a representation of the elements of a system using abstract, graphic symbols rather than realistic pictures.
Section Another term for profile in sweeps.
Snap A drawing tool which locates points exactly by finding an existing point within the drawing database which is closest to a point selected with the on the screen.
Template A document (part, assembly, or drawing) that forms the basis of a new document. It can include user-defined parameters, annotations, predefined views, geometry, and so on.
Tolerance the permissible range of variation in a dimension of an object.
Trim A drawing editing command which causes one object to end exactly at another.
View The graphical representation of the geometry stored in the drawing database which appears in the drawing window or view port.
Working Drawing Refers to the 2D black-and-white line drawings required by both building departments and builders.
Effector the device at the end of a robotic arm, designed to interact with the environment.
Sensor a mechanical device sensitive to light, temperature, radiation level, or the like, thattransmits a signal to a measuring or control instrument.
Constant A hard-keyed value in the program code which cannot be changed while the program is running.
Variable A symbol which represents a value which can be changed during the running of a computer program.
Statement a single instruction in a computer program
Loop A sequence of instructions in programming where, immediately after the last instruction, control passes back to the first instruction.
Robotics the use of computer-controlled robots to performmanual tasks, especially on an assembly line.
Angular velocity The rate at which an object revolves, rotates, or spins. Measured in revolutions per minute (RPM).
Motor A device which produces mechanical energy.
Rotational dynamics investigates rotational motion of objects and deals with effects that forces have on motion
Gear a part, as a disk, wheel, or section of a shaft, having cut teeth of such form, size, and spacingthat they mesh with teeth in another part to transmit or receive force and motion.
Gear train An assembly of gears between the motor and the moving part controlled by the motor.
Engineering Design Cycle Is a series of steps that engineering teams use to guide them as they solve problems.
Newton’s Laws of Motion Describes the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it, and its motion in response to said forces.
Cycle Time Total time from the beginning to the end of your process, as defined by you and your customer
Efficiency rate A ratio that is typically used to analyze how well a company uses its assets and liabilities internally.
Factory planning A flexible solution designed to meet all planning needs. In a live environment, the application can re-optimize the production plan in response to machine breakdowns or unexpected inventory shortages.
