popupid: model](Engine) An object that is not constructed of brushes, but modelled triangles loaded from an .mdl file (a format that is proprietry to Half-Life). Scientists and Apache Helicopters are examples of engine models. In general, the Half-Life engine can handle the render of models much better than it can of brush surfaces. (Note: in r_speeds readouts, the wpoly figure is a measure of brush surfaces, and epoly a measure of model triangles.) (Compile Tools) A Brush Based Entity. Not to be confused with the engine definition of a model, which is in all respects, totally different.
a special construct used in a map, sort of a 3D painting. It makes epolys but not wpolys. Examples- weapons on the ground, player's bodies in HL mods, sometimes non-player characters, like monsters or hostages. Milkshape is the only shareware tool for making custom models. It is considered good manners to thank the author of any custom model you used in your map for the model.
quake-engine construction of polygons. aka MDL. the player, monsters, and weapons are all models. 3d modeling software such as meddle is used to create custom models. to texture the models, a custom skin is drawn and placed on the model. note: the correct term for making models is "modeling" not "modelling". Paul Steed says "modeling", so I'd accept that as canon. see also, Supermodels, Bubbah's monster page, Kray-Zee's modeling guide, or the free models page.

Explanatory & Analytical Models
An analytical tool used by transportation planners to assist in making forecasts of land use, economic and travel activity.
A type of analytic workspace object that contains a set of interrelated equations, which are used to calculate data and assign it to a variable or dimension value. Models are used frequently when working with financial data. See also dimension member, object, variable.
A theoretical system that represents scientific processes using a set of variables and the quantitative relationships between them.
A formal set of relationships that attempt to represent some processes of the real world. Some models are intended to explain causes and effects of processes, others are tools to estimate or project the results of those processes, even if the processes themselves are not fully understood.
Specific application of a general theoretical view.
A multidimensional structure including calculation rules and data.
A logical model (star schema) that you create from tables and columns in a relational database. You can use the OLAP model to create a metaoutline that generates the structure of a multidimensional database. The DB2 OLAP Integration Server desktop includes a tool called OLAP Metaoutline that you can use to design and create an OLAP model based on a relational data source.

(das) Modell A model resembles in shape and dimensions exactly the object you would like to cast in metal. Depending on the moulding process you will either create a lost model or a permanent pattern (for sand casting). Models for the lost-wax process are obviously made from bee's wax, or nowadays from microccrystalline wax.

The Simple Model calculates the present value of the future dividends that a company is expected to pay to its shareholders by assuming the current dividend increases at the same growth rate that earnings are projected to increase. The Advanced Model calculates the present value of the dividends that are expected in the next five years plus the present value of the estimated share price at the end of the fifth year determined by applying an estimated PE ratio to projected earnings per share in the sixth year.
