Abstract

This paper presents an overview of a 3D CAD/CAM system for electric appliances. The distinctive features of the system are as follows;
  1. 1

    The system supports a wide range of design activities, conceptual design, engineering design and production design.

     
  2. 2

    The system enables a conceptual designer to evaluate design options based on realistic representations of objects.

     
  3. 3

    Various kinematic simulation functions enable engineers to analyze mechanisms.
