ANN-Based Feature Recognition to Integrate CAD and CAM
This paper presents an intelligent manufacturing feature extraction method employing artificial neural network techniques. It discuss the subject about how to represent the features as the input expression of the ANN(Artificial Neural Network), how to determine the structure of ANN and the ANN-based feature recognition method. This method is mainly used pre-trained BP neural network to identify the B-rep model representation of the product. Through a lot testing, the validity of the system was verified.
