The CAD Interface and Graphical Output

  • Ian Anthony Stroud
  • Hildegarde Nagy


This chapter describes some basic graphics techniques used to communicate modelling results in terms of images. The chapter also describes techniques for creating engineering drawings. Dimensions are described as well as implicit shapes, like screw threads. The chapter also deals with model interaction.
