On the foundation summing up existing intelligent conceptual design method, this paper puts forward the research content, characters, path, and method of the conceptual design of extension for mechanical products. This paper rounds the core technology of intelligent conceptual design to research the modeling method of extension design in function-principle-layout-configuration. It includes the function expression, function decomposition and synthesis, function illation and decision. The computers are utilized to simulate the human dialectic thought when resolve problems in this method. The given example shows that the extension method has been applied in the field of conceptual design for mechanical products. This method has important significance to resolve the bottleneck problem of theory studying and engineering realizing of intelligent CAD.
