Graphic representation


This section concerns the graphic representation of the modeled device.

When referring to the graphic representation of a device, we are interested:

  • on one hand, in the different entities and their appearance: points and their visibility, lines and their color, faces, surface elements….
  • on the other hand, in the type of displayed view: side view, top view, bottom view, global view, … in its position and dimensions in the graphic display zone.

The first aspect of the graphic representation (called visualization of entities) is treated in chapter Data management .

The second aspect (called graphic view) is treated in this chapter.

This section presents the following:

  • concepts of graphic view
  • possibilities to modify the view (displacement, rotation, zoom, etc.)
  • presentation of predefined views (standard view, base plane views, opposite view, etc.)
