Modeling Compliant Parts: Dealing with Flexible Assemblies
Dimensional Control Systems is pleased to present a webinar on solving flexible assembly issues in 3DCS.
The webinar features CAD simulation and analysis, using 3DCS, both the CATIA V5 integrated and the Multi-CAD version. DCS’
Most assemblies deal only with rigid body parts, those that do not flex or bend during assembly and manufacturing. However, when compliant parts are present in an assembly, as is often the case in automotive and aerospace manufacturing, it is important to take into account the flexibility of these parts during production.
3DCS Compliant Modeler, an Add-On to 3DCS, allows the analysis of flexible and compliant parts, utilizing FEA Mesh data, as well as modeling clamping, welding, over-constrained assemblies and other assembly routines.
This webinar will examine two use cases in Compliant Modeler. Both of these cases are based on real life examples, but are not using actual customer data.
The first case involves an aircraft wing with applied gravity and point force engine weight. The problem to be investigated:
Taking into account both gravity and the force from the engine’
The second case focuses on the final body assembly of a car in an automotive plant. When the hood is fastened to the vehicle body it is connected in three places: the rear corners and the front, center latch. The front latch is used to control the hood to fascia flush, while bumpers are set to control the hood to fender flush. Using 3DCS Compliant Modeler, our team will demonstrate how a bumper process can be simulated and tested in order to determine the optimal location to fit the hood in place.
If you use 3D CAD for simulation or design, this is an excellent opportunity to see how 3D variation analysis can help drive and optimize your designs. For those involved in dimensional engineering, this is a perfect opportunity to see how 3D variation analysis can solve complex issues and do more than simple tolerance analysis.
