Using Reference Models

It is important to understand how reference models are used in manufacturing assemblies. Reference models represent the finished machined component. For example, this can be: • A component machined from solid. • A machined mold core. • A machined casting. Creating reference model options: • Same Model • Inherited • Merged by Reference …

Analyzing Missing Part Reference Failures

Missing part reference failures occur when a parent feature is changed, and the child feature can no longer find the parent’s reference. • Missing part reference failure examples include: – Missing axes – Missing references for rounds/chamfers – Editing a sketch ♦ Replace sketched entities ♦ Replace Sketcher dimensions Figure …

Capturing Design Intent in Assemblies

Capture design intent in assemblies by determining which assembly type to use, which component to assemble first, and which constraints to use during the assembly process.  Considerations include: – Assembly type ♦ Static ♦ Dynamic ♦ Mixture – Assembly/Sub-assembly structure – Choice of base model – Assembly references – Fit/Interference issues Figure 1 …
