Study on Visual Assembly Process Planning System Based on 3DVIA Composer
Errors often occur in the assembling process because traditional two-dimensional process cards are lack of three-dimensional realistic in assembling site. Aimed at this problem, a visual assembly process planning system is proposed, which turns assembly process into assembly animation on the basis of three-dimensional model on the platform of 3DVIA Composer. This System combines assembly process planning with assembly simulation, and then realizes the assembly process related to three-dimensional process model and assembly animation and assembly process visualization in assembling site by the application programming interface provided by 3DVIA Composer. The system has been applied to some aircraft parts manufacturing enterprise, and then obviously shortens assembling time and guarantees assembling quality.
