### TITLE: Geometry Created for VR - Drilling Bit

BY: F. de Trogoff - CHAM UK

DATE: 1997

### Details:

- The geometry of a drilling bit was created by discretizing its
shape into coordinates (x, y, z)

- The coordinates were rescaled and repositioned so that:

| x | | x |
min | y | = 0 max | y | = 1
| z | | z |

- The scaled coordinates and information detailing each facet of the
geometry were placed in a data file.

- Using the created geometry, flow was calculated over its surface.
