Data mining from computer-aided design files
Currently, the service provided by Axya links manufacturers and buyers of manufactured goods. In order to find aperfect match between a manufacturer and a buyer, the computer-aided design (CAD) files they share need to beanalyzed. However, manual analysis of large amounts of CAD files is too time-consuming while requiring highengineering expertise. Based on this, it is proposed 1) to investigate ways of automating the analysis of CAD fileswith data mining; 2) to retrieve and analyze crucial features from CAD files; and 3) to identify future venues forCAD data mining system development.
