I don't know if this is the answer Pradip is looking for but BODY IN WHITE is an automotive term for the design "skin" of a vehicle before production. Usually after the clay but before the stamping stage. I'm sure that there are auto guys who can expound on that!

Rui,
Thank you! I was thinking the same thing regarding that question. And you touched on something that has been bothering me. It seems the individuals from some select countries generally will ask questions, but then do not think enough to share what they have learned through summaries. It is pretty much common courtesy as far as I am concerned. It seems like pretty much all take and no give for some groups of people. It would be nice if individuals that are involved in the outsourcing of engineering work would atleast be a little more linguistically clear in what they are trying to find out. I am sure I will start a firestorm with this one, and I expect some backlash, but at times this is something that has bothered me.

From my International Harvestor days, "body in white" referred to the cab assembly as welded and primed.
The G tags refer to surface smoothness as follows:
G1 tangent
G2 curvature continuous
G3 super curvature continuous

I think is was Richard Black that already sent a "BODY IN WHITE" answer that
was as detailed as the question... Nice job Richard, you beat me to the
punch!

Not to add fuel to the fire or take this too far off topic but this
exact thing crossed my mind this morning when I read the posts. There
are almost never any summaries posted by some and the balance of
give/take seems heavily weighted toward take.

I may be off the mark here but I am wondering if the lack of summaries
is related to the poor linguistic skills of said offenders? Not that
mine is all that great mind you. It seems some people (not all) overseas
have a hard enough time cobbling the words together to ask their
question, let alone edit and format a summary for all of us. (when I say
poor linguistic skills I am referring to written English as applied to
this email exploder, some may speak wonderfully in their native
language)

It would be very nice as you said if they would post a summary, even if
it was only a "copy & paste" summary.

No backlash from me and I have no ill feelings toward foreigners in
general. If you're going to participate in this system though you should
be willing to share any knowledge you gain with the rest. That is, after
all, the whole point of this, isn't it?

I'll quit while I'm ahead.

That's great..still that doesn't tell us What exactly his question is...
