This work presents a CAD prototype, named ClothAssembler, targeted at complex-shaped apparel design for real manufacturing. The intent is to fill a gap in the current CAD technology for garment design as it is mainly conceived for 2D/3D geometric modelling of cloth shapes, but generally does not provide high level operators that allow interactive and easy(More)
CAD systems and related technologies evolution has improved the development of software for automatic configuration of mechanical systems. This happened with the introduction of KAE systems that enable computer to support the designer during the decision making process. This paper presents a knowledge-based application that allows the designer to(More)
This article concerns the design of lower limb prosthesis, both below and above knee. It describes a new computer-based design framework and a digital model of the patient around which the prosthesis is designed and tested in a completely virtual environment. The virtual model of the patient is the backbone of the whole system, and it is based on a(More)
This paper concerns a research project that aims at developing an innovative platform to design lower limb prosthesis. The platform is centered on the virtual model of the amputee and is based on a computer-aided and knowledge-guided approach. In particular, the paper focuses on the module, named Socket Modeling Assistant-SMA, conceived to design the(More)
Nerve growth factor is a therapeutic candidate for Alzheimer's disease. Due to its pain-inducing activity, in current clinical trials nerve growth factor is delivered locally into the brain by neurosurgery, but data on the efficacy of local nerve growth factor delivery in decreasing amyloid-β deposition are not available. To reduce the nerve growth factor(More)
This paper presents a multi-level approach to define a product model. It is based on the concept of what we call “Intelligent” Component. In order to be able to manage contextually the different types of knowledge involved during the design process, the multi-level model reflects the different steps of the process itself. To describe the approach an(More)
