1. Define CAD.

Computer Aided Design (CAD) may be defined as the use of computer system to help in the creation, modification, analysis, and optimization of a design.

2.  List out the steps involved in Shiley’s design process.

4) Analysis and optimization

5) Evaluation

6) Presentation

3. List out the various activities of CAD.

1) Geometric modelling

2) Engineering analysis

3) Design review and evaluation

4) Automated drafting

4. What are the benefits of CAD?

1) Productivity improvement in design.

2) Shorter lead time.

3) More flexibility in design.

4) Fever design errors.

5) Improved design analysis.

6) Standardization of design, drafting and documentation.

7) Easier creation and modification of design.

8) Easier visualization of drawings

5. Mention the important CAD software packages.

 AutoCAD, Pro/E, IDEAS, UniGrpahics, CADian, SolidWorks, CADKey, CATIA, ArchiCAD, Autodesk Inventor, etc.

6. What is point plotting?

Point plotting is a process of converting a single pixel position into appropriate operations for the output device.

7. Mention any two algorithms used to plot lines.

1) Digital Differential Analyser (DDA) algorithm 2) Bresenham’s algorithm

8. What are the drawbacks in DDA algorithm?

1) Floating-point operations and rounding off are time consuming.

2) Due to the accumulation of round-off error, the calculated pixel positions may drift away from the true line path for long line.

9. What is transformation?

In computer graphics, the drawings can be modified by performing some mathematical operations on the coordinates of geometric elements. These operations are called transformations. Translation, scaling, and rotation are the basic transformations.

10. Define translation.

Translation involves moving the geometric elements from one location to another. In matrix notation, it can be represented as (x’, y’) = (x, y) + T


 x’, y’ = Coordinates of the translated points

 x, y = Coordinates of the original point m,

n = Movement in the X and Y direction respectively.

T = Translation matrix = (m, n)

11. What is scaling?

Enlarging or reducing the size of a graphic element is known as scaling. The points of an element can be scaled by the scaling matrix as follows: (x’, y’) = (x, y) S

12. What is rotation?

 It involves the rotation of an object about its origin by an angle θ. The object is moved while rotating. In matrix notations, the procedure will be as follows: (x’, y’) = (x, y) R

13. Write down the rotation matrix for rotating an object about X-axis.

The rotation about X-axis by an angle θ in three-dimensional space is represented in matrix notation as follows: (x’, y’, z’) = (x, y, z) Rx

14. Define concatenation.

Concatenation is the process of combining the single transformations as a sequence of transformations. The combined transformations are called concatenated transformations. Concatenated transformations are generally performed during the editing process in a graphic model.

15. What are the techniques of geometric modelling?

 1) Wireframe modelling 2) Surface modelling 3) Solid modeling

16. List out advantages of wireframe modelling.

In CSG, solid model is built from solid graphic primitives.  In B-rep, solid model is obtained by creating the outline or boundary of the object.

23. What is hybrid scheme?

Hybrid scheme is the combination of both constructive solid geometry and boundary representation approach. It makes use of the relative benefits of both approaches overcoming their relative weaknesses.
