Pro­duct assem­bly in VR — tan­gi­ble insights based on digi­tal data 

Start living the Design for Manu­fac­tu­ring phi­lo­so­phy. Use the advan­ta­ges of the vir­tu­al world: Through the clear ana­ly­sis of geo­me­try and pro­duct struc­tu­re you will quick­ly gain an under­stan­ding of indi­vi­du­al assem­blies and their con­texts. Plan the instal­la­ti­on and remo­val of parts. Test assem­bly sequen­ces with rea­listic col­li­si­ons. With Halo­cli­ne Assem­bly you have the pro­ducts in your vir­tu­al hands even befo­re the first hard­ware pro­to­ty­pes are produced.

Understanding

You do not need any spe­cial know­ledge to check your pro­duct design with Halo­cli­ne Assem­bly. You can easi­ly import exis­ting CAD data. It is irrele­vant whe­ther the data is avail­ab­le as a nati­ve CAD file or in a stan­dar­di­zed exchan­ge for­mat (over­view of the sup­por­ted for­mats). The visua­liz­a­ti­on is done true to sca­le so that you can expe­ri­ence your pro­duct 1:1. Based on the CAD hier­ar­chy of the model sub­as­sem­blies can be taken apart and inspec­ted. This makes even the smal­lest details visi­ble and the con­nec­tions bet­ween indi­vi­du­al parts easier to understand.

At a glance: 

  • Import of CAD data for viewing in VR
  • Visu­al inspec­tion and ana­ly­sis of 3D data
  • Dis­as­sem­bly of assemblies

Trying it out

In a fur­ther step you can check the ease of part instal­la­ti­on of your pro­duct. For this pur­po­se, the­re are various ana­ly­sis tools with which you can mea­su­re distan­ces and gene­ra­te sec­tio­n­al views, for examp­le. Exami­ne instal­la­ti­on spaces and check for bot­t­len­ecks to ensu­re the acces­si­bi­li­ty of each indi­vi­du­al parts. For a clear over­view you can hide and show indi­vi­du­al parts and assem­blies at any time. To check assem­bly sequen­ces, you can run through your instal­la­ti­on sce­n­a­ri­os and test for col­li­si­ons in real time.

At a glance

  • Distance mea­su­re­ment and genera­ti­on of sec­tio­n­al views
  • Inves­ti­ga­ti­on of buil­ding spaces and bottlenecks
  • Real-time col­li­si­on tests (BETA)

Further use

Halo­cli­ne Assem­bly also offers you the pos­si­bi­li­ty of defi­ning sub­as­sem­blies rele­vant for the assemb­ling pro­cess inde­pendent­ly of the func­tio­n­al CAD hier­ar­chy. Thus, dif­fe­rent assem­bly sta­tes of a pro­duct can be map­ped. Based on this indi­vi­du­al struc­tu­re, you can crea­te the opti­mal works­pace design for the assem­bly pro­cess in Halo­cli­ne Lay­out. Use the oppor­tu­ni­ty to test assem­bly con­texts with all par­ti­ci­pants in the vir­tu­al fac­to­ry and gene­ra­te the appro­pria­te manu­fac­tu­ring bill of mate­ri­als (MBOM). By car­ry­ing out this pro­cess step ear­ly on in the cour­se of pro­duc­tion plan­ning, you can detect design errors more quick­ly and can reli­ab­ly esti­ma­te assem­bly feasibility.

At a glance:

  • Defi­ning subassemblies
  • Export of indi­vi­du­al definab­le assem­blies from CAD models
  • Inte­gra­ti­on of the data in Halo­cli­ne Lay­out for work­place design
