Solid Modeling

solid modeling in computer aided design

Solid modeling is a set of principles that apply in a computer-aided design (CAD) context, particularly when it comes to simulating 3D objects.

A solid modeling system tries to forecast how the eventual object would look like and ensures that the design of the object is geometrically correct.

Solid modeling has allowed difficult engineering processes to be automated and supports key processes in manufacturing such as machining and assembly.
