In the last few years, several schools are introducing feature-based, parametric solid modeling as a part of the Engineering Graphics course in the freshmen year. This new technology made the traditional methods of teaching engineering graphics obsolete. In most cases, the traditional methods assume that there is one correct representation for a given part. On the other hand, in solid modeling, a part can be created using several approaches with the same- or different-set of primitives. Some of these approaches are superior to the others as they capture the real design intent accurately. Due to the strong relationship between the part modeling approach and the design intent, this technology provides an excellent opportunity for introducing design
