In order to better integrate downstream applications - like simulation or virtual reality based applications - within design cycles, geometric data extracted from the digital mock-up need to be prepared and adapted to the needs and the constraints of these applications. In this paper, we propose to formalize the preparation process from the digital mock-up to an adapted database (AD). These processes allow not only transforming geometric data, but also creating a link between the initial data and the AD. The current computer implementation shows how this processes can be described and saved, in order to automate and capitalize processes, reduce preparation time, and finally enhance downstream applications integration within design.
