Abstract

This paper describes the functionality of a Feature Recognition system, known as FeatureFinder. The system's algorithm has been developed from a graph-based approach to feature recognition and is now capabl e of identifying a variety of features on a wide range of machi ned components. The system has been desi gned to be used within asolids machining package and identifies features from a specified tool approach direction. The paper details the result of applying the algorithm to the CIE97 test pieces. Features are identified on all of the components and the paper cond udes with a brief description of on-goi ng work designed to extend the range of components FeatureFinder's algorithm can analyse. © 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd.
