Abstract A computer based Feature-Recognition (FR) process is being developed to extract critical manufacturing features from engineering product CAD models. Feature-recognition technology is used for automating the extraction of data from CAD product models to minimise redundant user interaction with a product model. The feature-recognition process was developed using rule-based methods with wire-frame geometry extracted from an IGES neutral file format. Use of wire-frame models simplifies product geometry and has the potential to support rapid manufacturing shape evaluation at the conceptual design stage. The FR process is demonstrated using a range of typical metallic aerospace components.
