Describing and verifying of the models for three-dimensional (3D) neutron transport simulation based on Monte Carlo (MC), discrete ordinates (S N ) and MC-S N coupled methods are time-consuming and errorprone. The conversion algorithm and corresponding CAD-based interface programs have been developed to achieve the bi-directional conversion between commercial CAD systems and the neutron transport simulation codes including MCAM program for MC simulation, SNAM program for S N simulation and RCAM
