Abstract : There are numerous ways to define steel parts and each yard favors some subset of these. Interactive graphics is just one of these and not necessarily the obvious best choice right now. Those I know of are: Optical negatives, Digitizing, Part Coding, Part Splitting, Direct ESSI, APT Interactive Graphics. The philosophy differences come in on whether interactive coding should be the best approach toward speeding the process or perhaps using AUTOKON NORMS in a digitizing system or even letting the Design office put the parts in numerical form rather than the Mold Loft. We've also heard philosophy differences on whether the source code or the part geometry itself should be kept as the true record of the part. In other words Parts Definition is different things to different people.
