solid model

Definition

Electronics

  • A three-dimensional geometric model which represents both the external shapes and the internal structures of an object. This contrasts, for instance, with a surface model, which appears externally as a solid, but which does not have internal structure. A solid model has attributes such as thickness and volume, making it more complex and processing-intensive than a surface model.
