A distributed collaborative engineering has been increased in various types of industries. As a consequence, many CAD application developers have improved web-based designing systems. However, the web applications cannot modify and create 3D data but only visualize a 3D model. This paper describes a web-based collaborative frame work for a runner-gate design; it includes aninter active 3Drunner-gate designing module, converting module, real-time communica- tion module, etc. The design process involves numbers of steps such as uploading 3D model data file to the STL- converting server, designing guidelines of runner-gate on the web browser, and an automatically generating runner-gate system through serversideapplication programming interface (API). This paper concludes solutions on issues raised by research and development process of the suggested framework.
