- 25. WIRE FRAME MODELLING Wire frame models can be consider as networks of interconnected lines to represent the edges of the physical objects 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
- 26. Merits and Demerits of wire frame modelling It is simple and easy to create This is basis for surface model Accurate information about the location of surface Automatic generations of cutter paths to drive NC machine tool CPU time required to edit or update a wire frame model is small compare with surface and solid modelling. Calculation of section properties and mass properties are impossible It has limited use in manufacturing and analysis Presentation of circular holes and curved surfaces are poor Interference checking will be difficult 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
- 27. SURFACE MODELLING A surface model can be built by defining the surface on the wire frame 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
- 28. Surface Entities 1.Plane surface This is a simplest surface. A planer surface is generated through number of coplanar points. 2. Rules surface This is a linear surface A surface is interpolated b/w two guiding curves “rails” 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY

Merits and Demerits of surface modelling Merits To check the aesthetic look of the product Complex surface can be created very easily (shoes, car panels, doors ) It can be used to perform Interference checking Demerits It require more computational time compared with wire frame Mass properties (weight, volume and Moment Inertia) cannot be derived from surface models More skill is required for surface modelling 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
- 34. SOLID MODELLING Solid modeling is based on complete, valid and unambiguous geometric representation of physical object. Complete points in space can be classified.(inside/ outside) Valid vertices, edges, faces are connected properly. Unambiguous there can only be one interpretation of object 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
- 35. Constructive solid geometry (CSG) Objects are represented as a combination of simpler solid objects (primitives) such as cube, cylinder, cone, torus, sphere etc. The physical operations are modelled by combining these primitives by a set of Boolean operations. 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
- 36. Tree structure of model Binary tree scheme is used to store the model in the data structure Any node may have one parent and two child node. The root node (R) has no parent and leaf node (L) has no children. Object = (A∩B)-(CU(DUE) 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
- 37. Advantages of CSG CSG is powerful with high level command. Easy to construct a solid model – minimum step. CSG modeling techniques lead to a concise database less storage. Can be converted to the corresponding boundary representation. Less skill is enough Disadvantages of CSG More computational effort and time are required whenever the model is to be displayed on the screen Getting fillet chamfer and taperness in the model is very difficult 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
- 38. Boundary Representation (B-rep) The solid model created by using B-rep technique may be stored in the graph based on data structure system Vertices are connected to form edges and these edges are connected together to form the face which makes the complete solid B-rep Vs CSG In the CSG the number of basic primitives available are limited The performance of B-rep scheme is very much superior to that of CSG for complex engineering models. Conversion of CSG to B-rep is possible, but B-rep to CSG is not possible 6/25/2015M.MANIMARAN KRCE TRICHY
