title Evaluating the Complexity of CAD Models in Education and Practice

summary When educators or students estimate the complexity of proposed CAD projects, in order to judge feasibility, two conceptions of complexity may be considered. The first, design complexity, based on visible features of the object to be modelled, is the easier to assess beforehand, but is not very reliable. The second, CAD complexity, based on the actual CAD embodiment of the design, is suggested as potentially a more useful guide, in spite of evident difficulties with assessment in advance. Clearer articulation of this under utilised concept is proposed for both educational and more general reasons, and this becomes the focus of the paper.
