After the creation of a CAD model there may be required to do an analysis of its applicability to solve specific tasks. The conducting of this analysis is simplified considerably if the full geometry of the components is not seen but only imposed geometric relationships between them, which are the content of the structural scheme of the assembly. This paper proposes an approach for an automatic generation of the structural scheme of a mechanical assembly from its CAD model. It should be noted
more » ... t should be noted that the structural scheme, considered in the conventional sense, does not contain the actual properties of geometric relationships-in the structural scheme the components are of the same type when in the fact they are divided into basing and based. Therefore, there are generated the so-called extended structural scheme that contains all components and their basing patterns.
