A Geometric Constraint Solver for Parametric Modeling
Jae Yeol Lee ; Kwangsoo Kim ;
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 4, 1998, Pages 211~222
Parametric design is an important modeling paradigm in CAD/CAM applications, enabling efficient design modifications and variations. One of the major issues in parametric design is to develop a geometric constraint solver that can handle a large set of geometric configurations efficiently and robustly. In this appear, we propose a new approach to geometric constraint solving that employs a graph-based method to solve the ruler-and-compass constructible configurations and a numerical method to solve the ruler-and-compass non-constructible configurations, in a way that combines the advantages of both methods. The geometric constraint solving process consists of two phases: 1) planning phase and 2) execution phase. In the planning phase, a sequence of construction steps is generated by clustering the constrained geometric entities and reducing the constraint graph in sequence. in the execution phase, each construction step is evaluated to determine the geometric entities, using both approaches. By combining the advantages of the graph-based constructive approach with the universality of the numerical approach, the proposed approach can maximize the efficiency, robustness, and extensibility of geometric constraint solver.
Development of a Dedicated CAM System for Styrofoam-pattern Machining
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 4, 1998, Pages 223~235
A dedicated CAM(Computer-Aided Manufacturing) system has been developed, which generated tool-path to machine Styrofoam stamping die-patterns in Chrysler Corporation. A previous process to build die-patterns was to "stick build" the pattern, in which stock is cut & glued together, and then the NC machining of part-surface shape completes building a Styrofoam die-pattern. The current process utilizes the developed CAM system, and almost removes the manual work, consequently reduces the overall lead time. The paper presents the overall system structures, tool-path generation, and some features of Styrofoam pattern machining.
A Study on Cutting Tool Selection Techniques for Rough and Finish Turning Operations
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 4, 1998, Pages 236~242
This paper presents a development of computer aided cutting tool selection techniques for rough and finish turning operations. The developed system,. which is one of important activities for computer aided operation planning, firstly implements operation sequencing. Then, from relations of the size of machined area, recommended finishing allowance and maximum depth of cut, a main machining method is selected, a number of cut is calculated, cutting tools including toolholders and inserts are selected, and values for cutting parameters are determined. A cutting tool selection procedure is proposed for toolholders and inserts of ISO code in rough cutting, and some important parameters such as holder style, tool approach angle, tool function and its direction are described in detail. In order to demonstrate the validity of the system a case study is performed.
A New Method of the Global Interpolation in NURBS Surface: II
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 4, 1998, Pages 243~250
In parametric surface interpolation, the choice of the parameter values to the set of scattered points makes a great deal of difference in the resulting surface. A new method is developed and tested for the parametrization in NURBS surface global interpolation. This method uses the parameter value at the maximal value of relevant rational basis function, to assign the parameter values to the arbitrary set of design data. This method gives us several important advantages in geometric modeling, the freedom of the selection of knot values, the feasible transformation of the data set to the matrix, the possibility of affinite transformation between the design data and generated surface, etc.
A Development of ROPP Information Modeler for Mid-Sized CIM
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 4, 1998, Pages 251~259
Currently a hot potato in industries is to reduce the lifecycle of product and maximize the time-to-market benefits. A lot of methodologies and the concrete systems are in use for performing this function. One of these systems is that process are reconstructed by BPR and systems are implemented by PDM. First of all, th analyses of existing product, process and resource data must be preceded. New process is established on the basis of the analyzed information of a company and PDM implements the new process in the company. The consecutive activities like this provide the basic environment for CIM. However, the current system have been developed on the favor of a big company. There are many problems in applying it too a mid-sized company. A lot of function in a PDM tool is not necessary for the mid-sized CIM characteristic. The purpose of this study is to define the ROPP information model that is an appropriate information integration for a design process. The model shows an associated complicated information of a company effectively. Also the modeler makes it possible to manage consistently the constraints of design process on the basis of the analysis of dependency among each resource.
Study on Standard Product Data Translation Method
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 4, 1998, Pages 260~273
Standardization for product data has not been well established and many different presentation methods are being used in CAD/CAM industry. In order to accomplish system integration or concurrent engineering in such situation, product data exchanges among heterogeneous system are needed. This paper presents a data exchange system between IGES and STEP (AP 202 and 203). The schemata of those standard data formats are represented in EXPRESS and the relationship between corresponding entities are written in EXPRESS-X. Relationships among Non-geometric entities (such as color and annotations) as well as geometric entities are examined. Because the system implemented in this research uses high-level schema language and mappign language, it can be easily extended to support new data formats.
Generative Process Planning through Feature Recognition
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 4, 1998, Pages 274~282
A feature is a local shape of a product directly related to the manufacturing process. The feature plays a role of the bridge connecting CAD and CAM. In the process planning for he CAM, information on manufacturing is required. To get the a manufacturing information from CAD dat, we need to recognize features. Once features are recognized, they are used as an input for the process planning. In this paper, we thoroughly investigate the composite features, which are generated by interacting simple features. The simple features in the composite feature usually have precedence relation in terms of process sequence. Based on the reason for the precedence relation, we classify the composite features for the process planning. In addition to the precedence relation, approach direction is used as an input for the process planning. In the process planning, the number of set-up orientations are minimized whole process sequence for the features are generated. We propose a process planning algorithm based on the topological sort and breadth-first search of graphs. The algorithn is verified using sample products.
The Web-Based Engineering Process Framework for Concurrent Engineering
Korean Journal of Computational Design and Engineering, volume 3, issue 4, 1998, Pages 283~292
The engineering process including design, analysis/evaluation and manufacturing activities is becoming one of the key issues to embody a concurrent engineering concept. This paper proposes a framework to integrated the complicated engineering design and manufacturing processes under the concurrent engineering environment. The framework offers the following facilities: (1) to represent the complicated engineering process (2) to coordinate design activities and execute the process in a distributed environment (3) to support a communication among the related engineers. The engineering processes is depicted using process flow graphs that consist in tasks and the corresponding input and output data. The engineering activities in the defined processes can be executed in a distributed environment through process controller of the framework. Engineers can communicate to suggest their opinions and to exchange product information in the framework. We have conformed the CORBA standard to integrate various distributed engineering the and communicate among them, and used a Java to support the platform independent environment on the Internet. Since the proposed framework an be a formal approach to integrate the engineering processes by providing formalism, parallelism, reusability, and flexibility, it can be effectively applied to embody the concurrent engineering concept in a distributed environment.

The objective of this study is to develop a PC level freeform surface modeling system which explicitly represents information of part geometry. Surface modeler uses nonuniform rational B-spline (NURBS) function with nonuniform knot vector for the flexible modeling work. The results of this study are as follows. 1) By implementation surface modeler through applying representation scheme proposed to represent free-form surface explicity, the technical foundation to develop free-from surface modeling system using parametric method. 2) Besides the role to model geometric shape of a surface, geometric modeler is developed to model arbitrary geometric shape. By doing this, the availability of the modeling system is improved. Geometric modeler can be utilized application fields such as collision test of tool and fixture, and tool path generation for NC machine tool.
