dc.description.abstractIn any design process a detailed description and communication of design ideas or specifications is essential. As part of the final design description are the engineering drawings that represent a detailed characterization of the design geometry. In some cases, the final design may be corrupted with additional geometry, which is not part of the problem, and lack of dimensions. In such a case, we will have to remove any unwanted items manually before being able to apply dimensions and constraints to characterize the geometry. Here we develop a software tool, which integrates UGS-NX5 and C++, to improve the characterization process for bidimensional geometry. The tool was successfully applied to several different bidimensional cross-sections; it is effective in the removal of unwanted objects from the geometry and the application of dimensions and constraints to the selected parts within the geometry. This makes the characterization process faster and user-friendly.en_US
