Abstract

The ability to interactively and collaboratively configure and re-configure 3D products on the Internet is an important facilitator for e-commerce. We describe the design of such a system, Co-assembler, that enables Casual Customers to perform limited Configurations of 3D products over the Internet. We discuss the technical challenges and outline our solution. We also describe the application of artificial intelligence to assist the customer in configuring the desired product, The system aims to Capture customers' needs and convert them into technical specifications, helping to facilitate e-Commerce for manufacturing enterprises.
