Project Context - Design Repository

Design Repository Scenario

The GICL lab at Drexel is mainly involved in the creation of a vast repository of free and public engineering CAD designs. Sub-projects include the development of search algorithms to use in queries to the repository, a mechanism for storing the collaboration in collaborative design, and, the project this website is concerned with, the implementation of a conceptual development tool for mechatronic assemblies. A preliminary version of the repository is currently available at Our tool is intended to be closely integrated with the repository, acting as a query interface.
