summary The research of applications concerning design, sizing and building of computer models have been, during the last years, undoubtedly of great importance and interest. Therefore, analyzing in detail the graphic packages concerning drafting and solid modelling we can undoubtedly say that these are nowadays an integral part of our daily work. In the near future, we can of course expect from those applications, new studies and research mainly concerning an easier start up and the standardization of the graphic interface; if we analyze, for example the well known package AutoCAD we can consider a new real data-base and the redesign of the interface on a graphic base (graphic choice of drawings and blocks, icons for commands, better capability of text editing, pattern editing and stretching, loading capability and visualization of various drawings in graphic windows, full compatibility with MS WINDOWS, etc. etc.). As above mentioned, these studies work on updating well known existing applications aiming to consolidate their uses; one specific section of design not yet supported by computer application is that related to the management of technical and non-technical information, nowadays still written and stored on paper.
