Abstract: Features are claimed to be the carriers of Designer's Intents (DI's) which are seldom defined, identified and represented in Design-by-Features (DbF) systems. This paper presents an interpretation of Designer's Intents for the Feature-based Modelling (FBM) context and emphasis will be given to the Morphological Functional and Volumetrical Geometrical DI’s which express the basic behaviour of a DbF system. DI's are also an important part of a validation system capable of reasoning about the semantics of using features in a particular design. If features' characterisations via DI's are well established and measurable the representation could be assessed as to its conformity with feature's meaning and their semantics could be validated. It is considered that the better Designer's Intents are understood and specified, the more useful Feature-based Modelling will become.
