The Digital Twin for Virtual Validation of the “As-manufactured” vs. the “As-designed”

Webinar na żądanie | 55 min.

Learn how scan data of real world parts can be used to update “as-designed” CAD and CAE models to match their “as-manufactured” reality.

While modern CAE simulation can predict the behavior of advanced designs with accuracy and precision, parts resulting from the actual, physical manufacturing process rarely exactly match the nominal design and in many cases will even exceed predefined tolerances. Competitive forces apply a constant pressure to get parts to market and firms can ill afford to toss entire batches of parts or reconfigure manufacturing lines on tight deadlines. With Simcenter 3D, scan data of real world parts can be used to update “as-designed” CAD and CAE models to match their “as-manufactured” reality, providing valuable performance predictions that can determine whether parts truly need to be repaired or scrapped, or whether parts can move on to physical test despite defects.

In this session, you will see:

  • Open environment supporting neutral and 3rd party formats for both CAD and CAE
  • Positioning and reverse engineering and repair of faceted scan/point cloud data
  • Advanced morphing of CAD geometry to match form and fit of scan
  • Automatic mid-surfacing of complex geometry
  • Advanced morphing of CAE finite element model to scan shape
  • Results post-processing to compare predicted “as-designed” and “as-manufactured” behavior
