Title

Visual representations as an aid to concept generation

Abstract

"This research presents an initial effort towards the development of a 3D visualization tool that is part of an overall effort to create an automated conceptual design tool to aid a designer during the early stages of the design process. CAD software finds use in diverse disciplines that have made use of simulation and software modeling tools for a variety of reasons involving some form of visualization. Described in this document is the use of low-memory three dimensional VRML models to represent component geometry, created to achieve several goals that complement the overall objectives of the automated concept generation algorithm"--Abstract, leaf iii.
