Computer-aided design (CAD) technology is essential for modern design and manufacture in the workshop. With software more practical, affordable and accessible than ever, there has never been a better time to learn how to get the most out of CAD. Whether you are new to using CAD or ready to try more advanced software, this practical guide gives a thorough introduction to the technology and how to greatly enhance design and manufacture in the workshop.Topics covered: techniques for designing and making artefacts in the workshop (not restricted to any specific CAD software package); guidance on software selection and general functionality; an overview of the conventions of technical drawing; case studies demonstrating the application of different CAD techniques for a range of projects. A practical guide to using CAD technology and how to enhance design and manufacture in the workshop, this is suitable for home metalworkers and model engineers and covers software selection; technical drawing and case studies using different CAD techniques.Superbly illustrated with 210 colour photographs and clear CAD diagrams.

Formal design methods provide the basis for the non-graphical use of computer-aided design. This volume represents the cutting edge of international research in the area, where artificial intelligence and cognitive science paradigms are providing a renewed impetus for exploration and development. The sixteen chapters are grouped into five parts: formal representations in design; shape grammars in design; design grammars; formalised design processes; and exploration in design. The volume will provide a valuable source of information for all those connected with this field.

This book contains a selection of revised versions of papers presented at the Third Eurographics Workshop on Intelligent CAD Systems, which was held at Hotel Opduin on the island of Texel in The Netherlands, April 3-7, 1989. The workshop theme was Practical Experience and Evaluation. It included five paper presentation sessions, each followed by a discussion. The workshop closed with a general discussion. The book is therefore divided into five parts: design process, system architecture, languages, geometric reasoning, and user interface. A report on the discussion session, written by the session's moderator, concludes each part. These reports are not intended to be exact records of the discussion, but rather the moderators' summary of their contents. The aim of the workshop was to share the experience the participants gained by developing intelligent CAD (Computer Aided Design) systems, and to evaluate the developed systems to determine which features were still lacking. The workshop was organized as the last one in a series of three workshops under the same title. The first workshop focused on theoretical and methodological aspects, resulting in a sound theoretical basis for intelligent CAD systems. Implementational issues were discussed at the second workshop, paying attention to systems developed with reference to this basis. The experience and evaluation showed a dual outcome. Firstly, it resulted in the development of a new generation of intelligent CAD systems. Secondly, it led us to the development of new theories for intelligent CAD.

Designing is one of the most significant of human acts. Surprisingly, given that designing has been occurring for many millenia, our understanding of the processes of designing is remarkably limited. Recently, design methods have been formalised not as humano-centred processes but as processes capable of computer implementation with the goal of augmenting human designers. This volume contains contributions which cover design methods based on evolutionary systems, generative processes, evaluation methods and analysis methods. It presents the state of the art in formal design methods for computer aided design.

CAD (Computer Aided Design) technology is now crucial for every division of modern industry, from a viewpoint of higher productivity and better products. As technologies advance, the amount of information and knowledge that engineers have to deal with is constantly increasing. This results in seeking more advanced computer technology to achieve higher functionalities, flexibility, and efficient performance of the CAD systems. Knowledge engineering, or more broadly artificial intelligence, is considered a primary candidate technology to build a new generation of CAD systems. Since design is a very intellectual human activity, this approach seems to make sense. The ideas of intelligent CAD systems (ICAD) are now increasingly discussed everywhere. We can observe many conferences and workshops reporting a number of research efforts on this particular subject. Researchers are coming from computer science, artificial intelligence, mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, civil engineering, architectural science, control engineering, etc. But, still we cannot see the direction of this concept, or at least, there is no widely accepted concept of ICAD. What can designers expect from these future generation CAD systems? In which direction must developers proceed? The situation is somewhat confusing.

CNC control of milling machines is now available to even the smallest of workshops. This allows designers to be more ambitious and machinists to be more confident of the production of parts, and thereby greatly increase the potential of milling at home.This new accessible guide takes a practical approach to software and techniques, and explains how you can make full use of your CNC mill to produce ambitious work of a high standard. Includes: Authoritative advice on programming and operating a CNC mill; Guide to the major CAD/CAM/CNC software such as Mach3, LinuxCNC and Vectric packages, without being restricted to any particular make of machine; Practical projects throughout and examples of a wide range of finished work; A practical approach to how you can make full use of your CNC mill to produce ambitious work. Aimed at everyone with a workshop - particularly modelmakers and horologists. Superbly illustrated with 280 colour illustrations. Dr Marcus Bowman has been machining metal for forty years and is a lifelong maker of models, clocks and tools.
