In this series of posts, we discuss the steps needed to take your manufacturing organization digital by enabling 3D engineering data with purpose-built tools for visualization and analysis, such as HCL Glovius. Part 1,The First Small Step- Gain Giant Benefits, discussed how adopting a tool like Glovius allows users in various teams across an organization to access, archive, and retrieve information at a faster pace, without having to spend significant money on 3D modeling tool licenses.
In this series of posts, we discuss the steps needed to take your manufacturing organization digital by enabling 3D engineering data with purpose-built tools for visualization and analysis. A vast number of users who consume 3D engineering data use it primarily for analysis. In fact, the number of non-designers using this data is typically 10 times (or more) the number of CAD designers who need a CAD authoring tool for modeling them.
With Glovius, export 3D CAD parts and assemblies as HTML files and view them in a browser. There is no need to install any application or a plugin.
We are excited to announce a new Glovius PLUS plan that enables you to export all your 3D CAD parts and assemblies to STEP, IGES, Parasolid, STL and 3MF formats. STEP files have become the de–facto standard in CAD data exchange use cases. Companies are setting up processes to use 3D files for collaboration and communication with their suppliers and extended teams.
Glovius has the ability to detect collisions in CAD assemblies. The ability to check for collision in an assembly is mainly useful for three reasons : Check for integrity of CAD assembly : Check if the various components in the assembly have been assembled properly with no overlaps or intersections . Errors or improper mating of assembly constituents result in a flawed design.
“What can’t be measured, can’t be improved” goes the old management adage. However, this adage can be adapted to engineering as well. Designers and Engineers measure their designs for knowing the intent, check/plan manufacturing steps, check for ease of assembly and a variety of other use cases. Measuring the radius of a hole, the length of an edge, the dimensions of a slot,the area of a face or the angle of axis are all essential tools to understand and analyze designs.
Glovius offers a number of tools that are purpose built for analyzing part designs. These tools help you analyze the design of the part and the ease of manufacturing. These tools have a wide variety of applications such as – Calculate the extents of the part design using the Analyze tool. Visualize the internals of a component using advanced Section tool
The ability to determine the material distribution and the corresponding thickness or thinness of a casting part is crucial for its design and manufacturing. Non optimal values of the part leads to issues in its performance during use. Thin wall sections may be structurally weak causing the component to fail during operational use while over compensated thick portions lead to an increase in the weight of the component and hence the subsequent cost to manufacture.
