Comprehensively Digital Descriptions Based on the Features of CAD and CAPP for the Typical Shaft-Like Component
Based on the body element and topological features, studied and built up the fundamental system of feature-description of digital design and manufacturing for the typical shaft-like components, systematically researched and set up content tree of the feature description， two core sub-systems of spatial relationships of geometric elements orientated to the digital design and presentation of processing operation features faced to the digital manufacturing, followed by comprehensive-parameter method for the description of surface characteristics of the component. An example, supporting axis, from Quanhai Machinery Development Co. Ltd., was given for considerations taken in utilization of the feature-description system for the digital design and manufacturing. It is hoped that the current study and the construction of the system may lay the foundation for the unification of CAD/CAPP/CAM.
