Abstract

Automatic feature recognition (AFR) techniques represent an essential tool that links computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided process planning (CAPP) systems. This is by converting low-level geometric entities of part design models created in CAD systems to manufacturing features which are used in CAPP. Whilst different AFR systems have been developed for the purpose of recognising final manufacturing features of a part, most of them do not solve features intersecting issues. The features intersecting is an unavoidable matter that occurs during the rough cutting cycle and forms intermediate manufacturing features. This paper presents a “features subtraction” methodology for solving manufacturing features intersection issues of rotational parts. The system takes the recognised external and internal manufacturing features from a smart interactive AFR (SI-AFR) system as an input. After seven steps of processing, it provides geometrical and topological information of intermediate and final features that can be used to automatically generate CAPP outputs, such as selecting machining process, sequence of operations, cutting tools and cutting conditions, and generating the G-code for machining the part. This has been written using C# coding, and several examples have been processed for this paper to validate the system.
