Parametric design begins with a variable sketch, which you put together using various dependencies and parameters. On the basis of this V-Sketch, you can then create an extrusion or rotation feature, for example. You can change the shape by modifying the individual parameters. In doing so, you are creating the model gradually. hyperCAD®-S calculates all changes are instantly visible. The model does not need to be recalculated.
Direct and Parametric Modeling within the same Environment
You can use the same dataset for direct modeling and parametric designing. You can include your static solid models in the parametric design and add parameterized features to them. Similarly, you can convert a parametric model into a static solid, for example, should you wish to perform further direct modeling. Using these two design methods side by side is therefore very straightforward.
