    Direct modeling is a relatively new process when it comes to computer aided design, but it is one that is revolutionizing how engineers can create products. Direct modeling allows engineers to create complex surfaces and rearrange parts with very little effort. Creating complex flowing designs is a time-consuming process in parametric modeling and this is […]
