Explains how to automate geometric reasoning related to design, product performance evaluation, manufacturability and inspection.
From the Back Cover
This comprehensive new text and reference book makes it easier to find, understand, and use the state-of-the-art techniques of parametric and feature-based CAD/CAM
Parametric and Feature-Based CAD/CAM is the complete introduction and applications guide to this exciting new technology. It gives engineers, designers, software developers, and graduate students a solid understanding of the basic concepts of features and their applications, and provides a broad overview of the whole range of geometric modeling techniques. Written by two of the leading experts in CAD/CAM, this authoritative book: Includes specific techniques, algorithms, data structures, and computer code that enable the reader to immediately implement the material in the book Assists the reader in automating geometric reasoning related to design, product performance evaluation, manufacturability, and inspection Covers feature types such as geometry and deviations from standard geometric forms; technological features; and material and assembly features
Due to the recent commercial availability of parametric and feature-based CAD/CAM, engineers, developers, and designers have access to excitingly powerful new tools. Design changes can now be made with a few high-level commands, and then automatically propagated through the model. Engineering analysis, manufacturing, and inspection can now be automated and integrated with design to a higher degree than ever before.
Parametric and Feature-Based CAD/CAM offers the reader comprehensive coverage of all topics related to features--from fundamental concepts to applications--and includes specific techniques, algorithms, data structures, and program code. For the first time, information that had required time-consuming literature searches has been gathered and organized for easy perusal. Written by recognized experts in CAD/CAM, this invaluable guide: Illustrates the use of features in design and manufacturing applications, and offers systematic methods for identification, formalization, and validation of features in various domains Provides a detailed treatment of various main architectural issues in specifying, designing, and implementing feature-based systems, and describes a wide range of modules in which feature-based modeling systems may be synthesized Discusses the conceptual development of features as modeling entities and describes their properties and their relationship to other modeling entities Offers background material on product modeling and provides a review of geometric modeling principles
For engineers, designers, software developers, and graduate students, Parametric and Feature-Based CAD/CAM offers a complete, comprehensive introduction and applications guide to this exciting new technology.

However, the concepts of parametric, variational and hibrid modeling techniques could be made more elaborate and lucid. The mathematics dealt in this book also could be retouched.
All these limitations aside, this is a class book. Ideal for university students and the guys getting into CAD/CAM development.
