Development of CAD/CAM Software System for Large Non-Regular Steel Constructions
Sun-valley of Expo-axis is irregular large-span steel structure building. For the complicacy and specialty of tubular joint conformation, existing domestic and oversea professional software are incapable of solving the detailing work of this structure. Characteristics, difficulties and function requirements of the engineering are analyzed; the framework, data structure kernel and implement algorithm of important functions are designed for a specialized integrated detailing/manufacture CAD/CAM information system. This software comprises the functions from 3D solid modeling to automatic output of shop drawing and NC data, and it has been successfully applied to the actual construction work of sun-valley project.
