Abstract

At this moment detail design has been well supported by feature technology, but unfortunately, it has no capabilities to support the intentional aspects of design. Therefore, the conceptual design stage is poorly supported by feature technology, since the intentional aspects of design are not captured. A new modeling paradigm, called nucleus technology is introduced to cover what cannot be covered by feature technology. In this research physically coupled pairs concept is applied, in which relationships between at least two objects are specified. And half spaces or portions of two objects, that are materialized and non-materialized, representing the two objects. Hypothetically, this entity not only can be used to represent part of a component, but also to describe the interactions between components in assembly modeling as well as the changes in products modeling.

Keywords: computer support of conceptual design, conceptul modeling, design concept representation, nucleus, physically coupled pairs
