Design guidelines for different manufacturing techniques have already been discussed for decades. Nevertheless, up to date no general framework for the implementation of manufacturing knowledge into 3D-CAD-models can be found. In this article a part of this gap is bridged. After discussing manufacturing restrictions in context of product development, different classification criteria for structuring these restrictions are presented. The resulting design catalogue allows the deduction of methods how to operationalize and model single restrictions in a CAD-system.
