1.What is Geometric Modeling? Classify it.Geometric Modeling is the process of generating three-dimensionalobjects of the real world for the purpose of analysis, design, draftingand manufacture.Geometric Modeling creates a database in the computer, whichrepresents the object generated. This object database is used to displaythe object, to prepare drawings of the object with different views, to prepare data for analysis and design and also to manufacture theobject using CNC machines.Classifications of Geometric Modeling:In general, there are three types of models commonly used torepresent physical objects. They are:1.Wireframe Model2.Surface Model3.Solid Model2.What is the advantage of surface modeling over wireframe modeling?a)Wireframe models are the simplest among the three types of models.They are easy to create and use. They are generally used to createmodels of simple objects.In surface modeling, not only simple but also even complex shapescan be generated by combining Planes, ruled surfaces of revolution, sweep surfaces and fillet surfaces. b)Surface models define part geometry more precisely, as comparedto the wireframe model, and can be used directly to generate path profile data for NC machines.But Wireframe model does not distinguish between inside andoutside of the surfaces of the object and they are inadequate to beused for generating cutter paths to drive NC machines tomanufacture the object.c)In Surface modeling, Techniques like hidden surface removal andhidden line removal makes it possible to display the objects as asolid object and viewed from any point.But these techniques are not available in the wireframe modeling3.What are the different drafting standards?4.List out the various drawing sheet sizes.5.What is the use of Grid Reference System?6.What is Item Reference Number?

CATIA BasicsWorking With A Session:
1.A Session is defined by a set of models and a SESSION MANAGER.2.The SESSION MANAGER configures a CATIA session and managesthe data accessed by the user.3.Working with a session is working in context; this allows you to visualizeyour digital mock-up and to perform various simulations.4.A session is stored in a SESSION-type file. It must be considered as atemporary work environment save.5.No data transfer capability is provided on a session.
Hints & Tips:
When a model has been once active, you can see a
(emptyset symbol)or (
) at the end of the model name in the Window Menu Bar.2Displaying the working plane parallel to the screen on workstation:Select view+current 2D plane or key in
to work in the current 2D plane
Warning about Circles
: Circles are created in CATIA with a break  pointlocated at the 3 O’clock position. i.e while creating limit points on circle,one centre point and another point at 3 O’clock position will be created.
Visualizing different thickness
:If we cannot visualize the different thickness on the screen, display thelocalTransformation window with the STD option and set the thicknessoption to ON.
Forcing colours
: During the design phase, we may want to highlight anareaof our part. The colour forcing option allows us to force the same colour onto the elements.
About the Colour Palette:
Activate the local transformationwindow(PF4 key or Mouse buttons 1 and 3) select COL option. The colour palette has twozones:The first six boxes manage the colour of the CATIA graphics screen.The others manage the palette of available colours in model
Creating Standard Model:
To avoid having to customize modelstandards eachTime while creating a new part, we can create a standard model for which we set the standards we need before saving it for subsequent use.Then each time when we need a new model, we read the standard modelinstead of creating a new one.
while selecting a contour or profile, we can use *SEQ or *PRF insteadOf selecting all the contours or pressing Autosearch.
Applying Filters:
The filter we apply is supposed to let us see thegeometry only, but we can see the axis system even though it is on layer 0. The current layer is always displayed. If we create geometry, we createit in the current layer. We have to be able to see the elements we arecreating. To be sure to display only the geometry we want, ensure thatthe current layer is an empty layer.
An image (or occurance) of the geometric elements of a detail whichis transferred into another workspace is called ditto.A ditto can be used as a single element, but its constituent geometricelements can be used for further creations in the receiving workspace.If the geometric elements of the initial detail are modified, all thedittos are automatically updatedThe ditto mode is useful:1.To keep a subset independent from the rest of the model2.To place several identical subsets in the model, while creating them onlyonce in the model (memory space saving)3.To allow easy modification of a repetitive subset. Such a modification isapplied to each occurrence of the modelApplns.: Mainly used in designing1) Piping and2) Tubing
