A common CAD system must be provided a CAD data transfer that fulfils the need to satisfy each of these functions even in a different use of CAD data formats. In CAD system, it needs a compatible design tool to share all or part of product data that could be worked together. During the design process, a part of the product may go through with various field of design application such as Computer Aided Manufacturing, Finite Element Analysis, Kinematics or Dynamics Analysis, and Virtual Reality. In industry, manufacturers always look for a new model that having an interoperability CAD system which can improve part or product quality and minimize the rate of the production costs. Unfortunately, there are many problems regarding failure data translation or intelligent CAD data loss. Thus, a case study was carried out to identify the method of direct modeling in a CAD system. This software study (direct modeling technology) is used to solve the interest in interoperability issues which having product transformation of a sheet metal model to a plastic injection model. In this scope of the study, the CAD interoperability issues can be solved and handled through CAD conversion, geometric translation and its feature-based design in a CAD system. Three factors of technical information are carried out such as Ergonomic Review in CATIA software, Injection Mold Design Consideration in SolidWorks software, and Final Design Simulation in KeyShot for hand-dryers’ design considerations. These results of the proof of concept shown direct modeling technology had compatibility with one another and solve the interoperability issues for CAD users. In general, the method of direct modeling can remove bottlenecks in the early design process by making amendments and additions in few of seconds, rather than having to wait for using the method of traditional modeling to rework the design. The direct modeling technology provides a design tool that having a very quickly iteration on design concepts, simply edits the actual CAD part geometry and common intermediate CAD data translation format for multi-disciplinary CAD systems used in manufacturing industries.
