The aim of this paper is to develop a collaborative design system that can facilitate remote modification and control of a 3D solid model through the Internet. It enables the users to resolve conflicting viewpoints about an issue and collaborate to design a tangible object within a given set of constraints. In order to optimize the collaborative design system, we focus on the results obtained by using the collaborative design method for the real-time modification of a 3D solid model in a distributed environment. It also provides the method of managing the consistency between design entities. The efficiency of the system is verified by implementing it in a distributed environment.
