Abstract: The current manufacturing scenario feature technology which supports the integration of various systems of CAD with CAM then CAM with CAPP or any other computer aided systems. The most important function supported by feature technology the transfer of product and process data. Product model data is the standard for exchange of product information from one CAD system to different systems for seamless integration with CAM. Most of the CAD systems are developing the software’s are using STEP AP-214 product model data. AP-214 is a systematic neutral data format for developing a feature-based process planning. In this paper, collection of STEP AP-214 based product model data as stated by ISO 10303 to identify the features of the product for manufacturing of prismatic part and generating a standard process plan. Further, this process planning is used to generate computer numerical control (NC) codes for CAM system to complete the manufacturing of part.
Keywords: CAD, CAPP, CAM, CNC, STEP, AP-214.
