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.
Wall Thickness Analysis
Perform Wall Thickness Analysis with Glovius to quickly identify material distribution in a CAD component. Calculate thickness using the Ray method or the Sphere method. Download Glovius.
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.
