In the process of web3D-based collaborative design, it is necessary to completely prevent operation conflicts among designers due to distributed environments and complex 3D models. Therefore, conflict detection and conflict resolution are of great significance to attain an acceptable result. In order to facilitate effective and smooth design work, a symmetry-based collaborative design framework is proposed using the X3D operation models. Combined considerations cover both models and operations, while different operation strategies are utilized for conflict resolution in web-based collaborative design. The strategy can achieve automatic operation, real-time conflict detection based on dynamically adjustable time, and conflict auto-detection and resolution with designers’ customization. A proof-of-concept system is developed for verification. The proposed resolution shows good performance, scalability and interactivity in a case study. View Full-Text
