In this paper we present MUG, a collaborative 3D environment to support knowledge-based conceptual design. This work integrates Computer-Aided and Collaborative Design methods with representation framework being developed for the Semantic Web. In this work, we have created a unique environment that allows a group of users, working together over the(More)
Extended Abstract The National Design Repository Project (http://www.designrepository.org) is creating a digital library of computer-aided design and manufacturing data. A main objective of this effort is to identify techniques to harvest this data and enable improvements in the engineering process. Presently the Repository consists of over 55,000 CAD and(More)
This paper presents MUG, a multiuser environment for collaborative conceptual shape design. The majority of current research prototypes and commercial systems for collabora-tive modeling emphasize data sharing and markup. Collabora-tive 3D environments and virtual worlds usually restrict themselves to models with display representations (e.g., VRML) and(More)

Properly educating computer scientists involves teaching effective means to properly engineer a system. An important part of such engineering work is ensuring that the computing system is both useful and usable. While many systems out there today are difficult to use, performing usability engineering on a system during its development has been shown to be(More)
