Closing the Loop On Digital Manufacturing
Workflow, While Moving Toward a
Model-Based Definition EnvironmentConmputer Aided Inspection (CAI) software helps CAD, GD&T
(Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing datums),
and measuring devices work together to ensure design
intent, and eliminate the need for 2D inspection drawings,
while closing the loop on digital workflow. These are
all important considerations when moving towards a ModelBased
Definition (MBD) environment.
CAD-Based inspection is a good first step toward achieving
a complete MBD environment. The central concept of
MBD is that a 3D CAD model provides all product information
needed for all a...
