Though there are already a variety of models for complex surfaces, they are not so convenient as needed in practice. A hierarchical model and the principle of decomposition and reconstitution for complex surfaces have been proposed, which have the potential to enhance the support of automated design systems on creative work intelligently. Then the progress made is discussed involving the applications of the new principle in the following three areas: conjugation surface calculation, tool path generation in numerically controlled machining, and machining process innovation by re-recognition.
