Geometric Modeling
Geometric modelling refers to a set of
techniques concerned mainly with
developing efficient representations of
geometric aspects of a design. Therefore,
geometric modelling is a fundamental part

Geometric modeling is the basic of many
applications such as:
•
Mass property calculations.
•
Mechanism analysis.
•
Finite-element modelling.
•
NC programming.
Requirements of geometric modelling include:
•
Completeness of the part representation.
•
The modelling method should be easy to use by designers.
•
Rendering capabilities (which means how fast the entities
can be accessed and displayed by the computer).

Wire-frame Modeling
Wire-frame modelling uses points and curves
(i.e. lines, circles, arcs), and so forth to
define objects.
The user uses edges and vertices of the part
to form a 3-D object
