Some test questions and answers

  • OutlineGive a brief account. a situation where 2D visualization would be more appropriate than 3D visualization.
    • For example, a map showing the journey from one point to another;
    • When only the route needs to be shown on a phone or otherwise;
    • As 3D version could take up too much space;
    • If no internet connection would be too slow;

An artist is planning to create a statue, but decides to do some planning before she starts.

  • OutlineGive a brief account. the advantages, to the artist, of using a computer aided designProduce a plan, simulation or model. (CAD) and graphic processing software for 3D modelling, instead of a series of sketches drawn by hand, to experiment with designs.
    • A series of sketches could show the designProduce a plan, simulation or model. from a limited numberA unit of abstract mathematical system subject to the laws of arithmetic. of angles; Whereas the CAD system would allow an initial wire frame to be constructed which could be rotated;
    • Changes could be (easily) made and the effect of the 3D shape from other angles seen immediately;
    • Easy to undo a change to the model, rather than erase part of the sketchRepresent by means of a diagram or graph (labelled as appropriate). The sketch should give a general idea of the required shape or relationship, and should include relevant features.;
    • Easy to scale the designProduce a plan, simulation or model.;
    • CAD files are less likely to get damaged than physical drawings;
    • Note: Do not accept vague statements like “CAD is more precise”.
