Keywords: parametric modeling, simulation


Parametric modeling is an approach to computer-aided design that gained prominence

in the late 1980s. An assumption commonly held among CAD users is that similar

modeling techniques exist for all CAD systems. To users that follow this assumption, the

key to learning a different CAD system is to adapt to similar CAD commands. This is

not entirely true when a two-dimensional CAD user tries to learn, for the first time, a

parametric modeling application. Within parametric modeling systems, though, you can

find a command that resemble 2D CAD commands. Often, these commands are used in a

parametric modeling system just as they would be used in a 2D CAD package.

Parametric modeling presents a different approach to CAD, especially when

compared to 2D drafting and Boolean based 3D modeling. Oftentimes an experienced

CAD user will have trouble learning a parametric modeling package. This is especially

true when a user tries to approach 3D parametric modeling as he or she would approach

Boolean solid modeling. They use similar concepts, but the approaches are different.

FEATURE-BASED MODELING Parametric modeling systems are often referred to as feature-based modelers. In a

parametric modeling environment, parts are composed of features (Fig. 1-4). Features

may comprise either positive space or negative space. Positive space features are

composed of actual mass. An example of a positive space feature is an extruded boss. A

negative space

feature is where a part has a segment cut away or subtracted. An example of a negative

space feature is a hole.

Parametric modeling systems such as Pro/ENGINEER incorporate an intuitive

way of constructing features. Often, the feature is first sketched in two dimensions and

then either extruded, revolved, or swept to form the three-dimensional object. When

sketching the feature, design intent is developed in the model by adding dimensions and

constraining the sketch.

Features can be predefined or sketched. Examples of predefined features include

holes, rounds, and chamfers. Many parametric modeling packages incorporate advanced

ways of modeling holes. Within a parametric modeling package, predefined holes can be simple, counter bored, countersunk, or drilled. Parametric modeling package hole command allows users the opportunity to sketch unique hole profiles, such as may be required for a counter bore. Sketched features are created by sketching a section that incorporates design intent. Sections may be extruded, revolved, or swept to add positive or negative space features.

or swept to add positive or negative space features. Compared to Boolean modeling, featur e-based modeling

Compared to Boolean modeling, feature-based modeling is a more intuitive approach. In Boolean modeling, a common way to construct a hole is to model a solid cylinder and then subtract it from the parent feature. In a parametric design environment, a user can simply place the hole by using a predefined hole command or by cutting a circle through the part. With most Boolean-based modelers, if the user has to change a parameter of the hole, such as location or size, he or she has to plug the original hole, then subtract a second solid cylinder. To adjust a feature-based hole, the user can change any parameter associated with the hole by modifying a dimension or parameter. Similarly, a feature's sketch can be redefined or modified.


The engineering design process once was linear and decentralized. Modem engineering philosophies are integrating team approaches into the design of products. As shown in Figure

Team members can come from a variety of fields. Teaming stimulates a nonlinear approach to design, with the CAD model the central means of communicating design intent.

Concurrent engineering has many advantages over the traditional design process. Individuals and groups invest significant resources and time into the development of products. Each individual and group has needs that must be met by the final design solution. As an example, a service technician wants a product that is easy to maintain while the marketing department wants a design that is easy to sell. Concurrent engineering allows, everyone with an interest in the design to provide their input. Modem engineering and communication technologies allow designs to be shared easily among team members. CAD three-dimensional models graphically display designs that can be interpreted by individuals who are not trained in blueprint-reading fundamentals. Because of this accessibility, the CAD system has become the heart of many product-data-management systems. Internet capabilities allow designs to be shared over long distances. Most CAD applications have Internet tools that facilitate the sharing of design data. Parametric Technology Corporation's Pro/Web-Publish, for one, allows for the publishing of CAD data over the Internet. Another example is PTC's Pro/Fly-

Through application, which displays Virtual-Reality-Modeling-Language (VRML) models and allows for the markup and animation of these models over an Internet or intranet. Following products will be selected for modeling and simulation
