Electronic prototyping, i.e. building a computer model of an object to verify its design, faces a number of obstacles. The Cornell modeling and simulation project, which was created to develop the necessary science base to overcome these barriers, is discussed. In particular, the project's progress in improving robustness of solid modelers and its ongoing research in electronic prototyping are examined. A key component of the project, a model-driven simulator capable of supporting a wide range of multidisciplinary research, is described.<>
