The use of orthogonal features are widely illustrated in design and manufacturing publications, if not widely used. Features as a method of design and manufacturing integration is dependent upon the communication of information from one context to another. Free-form features are used to represent sculptured aesthetic surfaces, for instance, in the automotive and mould tool industries. The surface creation, manipulation and blending processes are highly labour intensive, with automation a highly desired software characteristic. An outcome of the BriteEuram IMPRESS (BREU 7049) project has been to identify that free-form features have an optional many-to-many mapping relationship between features in a design context and those in a manufacturing context. To identify with this approach, a logical process of mapping is presented. The concept has enabled the partners to investigate this mapping link and to identify the processes and strategies used within the automotive and injection moulding tool industry.
