Abstract

In modern CAD systems, feature as a fundamental design unit is widely used for solid modeling, especially in single PC-based systems. In the age of Internet, one of the trends of developing and application environment of software is from single PC or LAN based closed environment to a distributed collaborative open environment. So in modern distributed CAD systems, well-defined feature model and interface with collaborative Junction to meet the distributed collaborative solid modeling requirement is an important matter. This paper introduces a feature model for distributed solid modeling environment, the model with the characteristics of open, normative, collaborative and transplantable. Information structure and working mechanism of the model are described in detail. Then the architecture of a distributed collaborative solid modeling platform are given. Feature information wrapping and a XML based data transfer strategy are also explained.
