what is a parameter in cad?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
A cad parameter is a programming function. Example, assume a drawing is already constructed; the cad drawing will display the dimensions of the drawing. The cad programming allows the user to change a dimension or parameter & then cad drawing can be refreshed with the drawing shape or gemetry reflecting the changed.
example a 1/2" circle, the parameter for 1/2 is changed to 1". The refreshed drawing will now show a bigger hole at 1".
Companies such as PTC of Mass, is one of the first pioneers to market the functionality in thier PRO Engineer cad program.
