Development of Parametric CAD System Based on Pro / Toolkit and Database Technology
With Pro/Toolkit of Pro/E and ADO(ActiveX Data Object) database technology, part parametric CAD system is developed and an successful instance is introduced in the paper. In the CAD system, interface between Pro/E and VC++6.0 is created correctly using Pro / Toolkit and user interface for part parametric designing can be achieved by means of dll( dll dynamic link) library built in VC++6.0 .Meanwhile ADO database is applied in the CAD system to manage all part parameters and thus part revising and updating can be realized quickly. The developing method in the CAD system not only is applicable to typical mechanical part designing but also be helpful to establishing standard part library.
