Current CAD systems provide exhaustive capabilities for specifying detailed component geometry in support of the product-design process. However, before detailed geometric designs are finally produced, the designer must first map the product requirements into functional specifications, and realize the functional specifications in the form of conceptual designs. While it may not be possible to automate these more creative steps fully in the design process, CAD systems can support the design… CONTINUE READING
