A web-based application has been developed for shape-based searching for industrial components. The application is based on Flex, which is excellent at providing highly interactive user interfaces, and O3D, which can display 3D models in a web browser efficiently. By combining the two technologies, the shaped-based industrial components searching system provides an effective way for users to search for industrial components and obtains other related information. This highly interactive 3D shape retrieval system is based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) that relies on the REST based web-service model to create efficient web application.
