Sample text

General modeling theory Modeling allows for both additive and subtractive design practices. The purpose of our model needs to be taken into consideration before we start designing, as we have two distinctly different design methodologies we can utilize. First, we can follow very strict and exact modeling, which is often the case when we are doing any product design or iterative work. This methodology is the most common, and occurs when we add dimensions to our models. This is known as Solid Modeling or Parametric Modeling.
