ISO 10303-203:2011

Industrial automation systems and integration -- Product data representation and exchange -- Part 203: Application protocol: Configuration controlled 3D design of mechanical parts and assemblies

ISO 10303-203:2011 specifies the application protocol for Configuration control 3d design ed2.

The following are within the scope of ISO 10303-203:2011:

  • products that are mechanical parts and assemblies;
  • product definition data and configuration control data pertaining to the design phase of a product's development;
  • representation of an instance of a part in an assembly through its usage in a sub-assembly;
  • three dimensional shape representations of a part that includes:
    • geometrically and topologically bounded wireframe models;
    • geometrically bounded surface models;
    • topologically bounded solid models with facetted, elementary and advanced faces;
    • non surface bounded solid models including constructive solid geometry, curve swept and other swept solids, thickened face solid;
    • solids with construction history;
    • topologically bounded manifold surface and subsurface and non manifold surface models;
    • topologically bounded compound models;
  • geometric validation properties to allow the translation of geometric shape representations (advanced boundary representation and faceted boundary representation solids) to be checked for quality;
  • geometric and dimensional tolerances applied to geometric shape representations;
  • materials and their composition of chemical substance;
  • composite material structure and shape;
  • catalogue data characterized by property value pairs;
  • three dimensional presentation of product data:
    • arranging geometric elements in layers and groups and assigning colours;
    • presentation styles for points, curves, surfaces and sections, including hatching and tiling;
    • saved views of particular camera positions and sections;
    • textual annotation and notes applied to geometric elements;
    • presentation of geometric and dimensional tolerances;
  • technical drawings as two dimensional presentation of product data.
