Research and Implementation on Variant Design Based on Product Assembly Model
Firstly, realizes module partition and simplification of product level CAD model using modularization and hierarchy design flow. Then, identifies the correlative relations of the same rank subassemblies through their individual main control part; identifies the correlative relations between all parts in one subassembly or between all features in one part through main control parameters of each part. Finally, builds an assembly tree based on all association rules for variant design of conveyor, and confirms the feasibility of this method.
