Identification of machinable volume for finish cut is a complex task as it involves the details not only of the final product but also the intermediate part obtained from rough machining of the blank. A feature recognition technique that adopts a rule-based methodology is required for calculating this small, complex shaped finish cut volume. This paper presents the feature recognition module in a CAPP system that calculates the intermediate finish cut volume by adopting a rule based syntactic pattern recognition approach. In this module, the interfacer uses STEP AP203/214, a CAD neutral format, to trace the coordinate point information and to calculate the machinable volume. Two illustrative examples are given to explain the proposed syntactic pattern approach for prismatic parts.
