Paper Abstract

The Internet offers tremendous potential for rapid development of mechanical products to meet global competition. In the past several years, a number of geometric algorithms have been developed to evaluate manufacturing properties such as feedability, fixturability, assemblability, etc. This class of algorithms is sometimes termed `DFX: Design for X'. One problem is that most of these algorithms are tailored to a particular CAD system and format and so have not been widely tested by industry. the World Wide Web may offer a solution: its simple interface language may become a de facto standard for the exchange of geometric data. In this preliminary paper we describe one model for remote analysis of CAD models that we believe holds promise for use in industry (e.g. during the design cycle) and in research (e.g. to encourage verification of results).
