An Interactive 3D Assembly Process Model
To enable interaction between part models in the 3D assembly process and real manufacturing resources, an extended assembly step model is proposed. Information about manufacturing resources is classified as static information, check item and check result, which endows assembly steps with dynamic interaction ability. The automatic match mechanism between virtual models and real manufacturing resources is put forward to make the interactive assembly step model practical. An implementation framework is also discussed to turn the interactive assembly process into reality.
