The authors describe how to use geometric boundary models of assembly components to find mating features, thereby permitting simpler task specifications to be used. To mitigate the combinatorics of searching for a feasible correspondence between features of different bodies, boundary models produced by PADL2 (the geometric modeler) are matched against a library of standard compound features. The feasibility of mating compound features is analyzed using the symmetry groups of features.
