Polygon Modeling with Constraint Management
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 3, 1998, Pages 145~153
An approach has been developed to generate parametric models with Boolean operations. The approach combines Boolean operations and graph manipulation on the constraints imposed on primitives. A Boolean operation is first performed on two primitives and new geometric elements such as vertices and edges are computed. Then to generate the constraint graph of the polygon the each constraints graph of two primitives are merged by adding the new geometric elements with its corresponding constraints. In the merging process, some of the geometric elements belonging to the primitives may be eliminated based on its contribution to the polygon. A computer implementation in a 2D space is described to illustrate the approach with examples.
Non-manifold Modeling Data Structure Based on Open Inventor
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 3, 1998, Pages 154~160
In this study, we implement the prototype modeler with non-manifold data structure using Open Inventor. In these days, Open Inventor is a popular tool for computer graphics applications, even though Open Inventor could not store topological information including a non-manifold data structure which can represent an incomplete three dimensional shape such as a wireframe and a dangling surface during designing. Using Open Inventor, our modeler can handle a non-manifold model whose data structure is based on the radial edge data structure. A model editor is also implemented as an application which can construct a non-manifold model from two dimensional editing.
Cutting Force Prediction of Slanted Surface Ball-End Milling Using Cutter Contact Area
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 3, 1998, Pages 161~167
Cutting forces in ball-end milling of slanted surfaces are calculated. The cutting area is determined from the Z-map of the surface geometry and current cutter location. The obtained cutting area is projected onto the cutter plane normal to the Z-axis and compared with cutting edge element location. Cutting force is calculated by integration of elemental cutting forces of engaged cutting edge elements. Experiments with various slanted angles were performed to verify the proposed cutting force estimation model. It is shown that the proposed method predicts cutting force effectively for any geometry including sculptured surfaces with cusp marks and surfaces with pockets and holes.

Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 3, 1998, Pages 168~176
This paper deals with an application on the mould machining of air intake hose product by using 3-dimensional parametric modeling techniques. The detailed domain is the 3-dimensional product with similar shapes and different sizes which needs too much working time for preparation of modeling or machining due to making a trial and errors repeatedly. Decision making rules for selection of modeling order and technique, and for calculation of cutting conditions, and for determination of sequence and method concerning machining operations are required by interview of expert engineers in the field. The developed expert system of modeling and machining is programmed by using a user programming language under the CAD/CAM software of the Personal Designer. The developed system that aids a mould engineer who is working in the modeling and machining section which deal with air intake hose product provides strong and useful capabilities.
Development of Automatic Cutting Tool Selection Program
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 3, 1998, Pages 177~182
The computer related techniques have been developed rapidly in the field of metal removal industry. The electronic catalog for mechanical elements is one of such developments realized in recent years. As the emergence of the electronic catalogs in the 90s, it breaks the restriction of the traditional catalog and becomes a helpful and efficient tool in the field. In this paper, we develop an electronic catalog for the cutting tools of the Korea Tungsten Co. Ltd. The catalog consists of three parts: a preprocessor for tool selection, a database for tool, and a postprocessor for search result. A preprocessor for tool selection is developed under a user-friendly consideration. A database for tool consists of milling, drilling, and reaming tools with a list of cutters, inserts, and components. A postprocessor for search result consists of weight, dimension. drawing, product order number etc. of the tools. It also suggests the optimized cutting condition of the selected tool using a neural network technique which is done by an independent research group.
A Planar Curve Intersection Algorithm : The Mix-and-Match of Curve Characterization, Subdivision , Approximation, Implicitization, and Newton iteration
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 3, 1998, Pages 183~191
There are many available algorithms based on the different approaches to solve the intersection problems between two curves. Among them, the implicitization method is frequently used since it computes precise solutions fast and is robust in lower degrees. However, once the degrees of curves to be intersected are higher than cubics, its computation time increases rapidly and the numerical stability gets worse. From this observation, it is natural to transform the original problem into a set of easier ones. Therefore, curves are subdivided appropriately depending on their geometric behavior and approximated by a set of rational quadratic Bezier cures. Then, the implicitization method is applied to compute the intersections between approximated ones. Since the solutions of the implicitization method are intersections between approximated curves, a numerical process such as Newton-Raphson iteration should be employed to find true intersection points. As the seeds of numerical process are close to a true solution through the mix-and-match process, the experimental results illustrates that the proposed algorithm is superior to other algorithms.
Structured Modeling of Sculptured Surface Machining Process
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 3, 1998, Pages 192~200
Even though most die-maker are using CAD/CAM systems rout NC tool-path generation, “front-end”CAD/CAM technologies have not been fully adapted to sculptured surface machining(SSM) nor are sufficiently utilized in die shops. This gap between die-making industry and CAD/CAM community persists mainly because of the lack of a SSM-process model through which the two groups communicate with each other. Proposed in this paper is a model of SSM-processes which is built around the concepts of machining stages, unit machining operations, and each machining stage is decomposed into a sequence of unit machining operations(UMOs). Identified in the paper are five machining stages and 17 types of UMO. Based on the framework of the proposed model, an example of inner-panel stamping-die machining processes is described in detail.
Integrated Process for Development of an Optimal Axial Flow Fan (Design, RP, Measurement, Injection Molding, Assembly)
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 3, 1998, Pages 201~209
To develop timely an optimal fan, a design system and a new manufacturing process used step by step have to be integrated. A small sized optimal fan for refrigerators, that was the goal on this project, was developed by the following principal processes. All processes are technologically linked in many directions: The existing fan was measured through reverse engineering. The measured data was used for the basic source of 3D design. The performance tests were carried and used as the data for the evaluation of the existing fan. Flow analysis by FANS-3D/sup / was performed at the given information (pressure drop and flow rate) to find out the configuration of optimal fan design. The flow patterns were investigated to measure the performance of fan through numerical experiment. The grid point data obtained by the above analysis turned into 3D high efficiency fan model by using CATIA. The product was manufactured by RP process (SLS, SLA) and tested the characteristic curves of the developed fan to compare with the existing fan. The modification of fan design were all examined to see any change in performance and checked to find any deficiency in assembling the fan into a duct. After the plastics flow analysis of the injection molding cycle to ensure acceptable quality fan, an optimal mold was processed by using tool-path for the newly designed fan.
