A system for recognition and modification of machining features on prismatic components

A recognition process of the features in a part model resorts to the knowledge of an application engineer. The knowledge is encoded as rules of the recognition procedure at the beginning that are applied to the part model during the recognition process. Such a human interaction is difficult to control in extracting the intended features because the intended features by the application engineer may change from one engineer to the other and the external situations. Instead, we treat the result of the recognition process as a rough extraction and allow the user interactively modify the result. In this paper, we present a feature recognition system where the user can inspect the result of the recognition and delete recognized features interactively.
