IMTS 2022 Conference: Accelerating Product Development through Reverse Engineering

How to apply the design process in a way that promotes the transition to a simpler workflow.

About the presentation
This topic is aimed at people with familiarity with some, or all the disciplines involved, but not necessarily hands-on use of the related hardware or software. Examples of specific software will be easily understandable and transferrable to other platforms. The presentation shows how to apply the design process in a way that promotes the transition to a simpler workflow through time, as the as-manufactured condition of legacy parts are incorporated in digital models, reducing the need for prototypes and facilitating a productive approach. Covered topics include:

• The Traditional Approach
• Assembling individual modern capabilities into an effective and risk-reducing approach
• Assessing the range of as-manufactured condition of legacy parts to qualify fit, function, and finish that may deviate from design, but still work
• Digitization of point clouds and geometry to model legacy parts in CAD
• Designing new components in CAD to meet actual legacy parts
• Virtual assembly of the product in CAD and iterative design refinement
• Use of rapid prototypes validated against CAD to close the loop on virtual activities, such as assembly, leading to final design refinement and digitization of modifications to update the digital design
• Examples including hardware and software workflows
• Accelerating product design, or paralysis by analysis? Recognizing and avoiding potential pitfalls
