The development of an extensive series of computer generated graphics packages for large-scale finite element analyses is described. Suitable examples illustrating the means by which such graphics are used for eliminating input errors, output data reduction, report preparation, and radically reducing overall task time spans are presented. Programs for which such computer generated graphics have been developed include two-dimensional geometries, general structures and arbitrary three dimensional solids while special purpose versions have been used for such applications as movie generation and interference studies. Finally, Lockheed's recent activities in the development of interactive computer graphics for large scale production finite element analysis are discussed and illustrated.
