The Geometry Modeling System User



Steve Clark, Sanford P. Ressler


The Geometry Modeling System (GMS) is an interactive graphics program which allows the definition of the features, functionality and tolerances of a part defined in the AMRF part model report format. The geometry and topology of the part is previously created on a CAD system such as an IBM running CATIA with a conversion postprocessor to convert the data to the AMRF format. This data is subsequently read by the GMS which expects complete geometry and topology data and allows the user to define and modify the features and functionality of the part. Upon completion of a session the user can write out a full AMRF database report containing the modified part data.
