Creating a Conceptual Model

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












A conceptual model is defined as a collection of geometry and other data that can be used as source material for the creation of 3D SVOFFICE models. This collection is referred to as a scene. SVDESIGNER contains features and tools used to create or import information into the scene, and to manipulate existing data for eventual use in model creation.




Please refer to the numerical model creation section for details on the specific requirements of an SVOFFICE model.


When SVDESIGNER is first opened, the display is empty and the scene only contains default entries. To get started, some data will be required. The following sections describe how this data is organized and stored in the conceptual model.
