3DCS Best Fit and Optics Analysis Webinar On-Demand

3DCS Best Fit and Optics Analysis - Beam Direction, Optical Sensors, Autonomous Controls Applications


The team at DCS will be presenting a detailed walkthrough of analyses focused on Best Fit scenarios for Locators, as well as controlling variation for sensor and beam projection in addition to a series of advanced functions for modelers

Recorded on February 23rd, at 11 am EST, DCS presented a free webinar on advanced modeling techniques that included a number of use cases that clearly showed how tolerance analysis plays a role in far more than gaps and flushes. 

A simple agenda belies a packed event:

  1. Best Fitting Complex Assemblies
  2. Light Projection and Optic Analysis
  3. Advanced 3DCS functionality

The Best Fit Move Gives You Solutions to Complex Assembly Issues


The Best-Fit_icon Best-Fit move is similar to the Six-Plane move except that it can have more than six pairs of locators defined. Like the Six-Plane move, each pair of locators needs a direction defined. Then, each object feature is best-fit to each target plane. Each target plane is defined by the target feature and the direction. If 4-way hole-pin pairs are locators, they need to be selected twice with two normal directions, just as in the Six-Plane move.

Optical Alignment Analysis for Beam Direction, Sensors, and Controls


Similar in scope to Valeo's presentation at the DCS User Conference (you can find a summary here) which controlled for dimensional variation that influenced the projection of user interface on the windshield of a car, this model focuses on how dimensional variation affects the beam direction of a headlight, providing methods to control the variation and ensure proper beam projection.

In addition, you'll learn:

  • Dynamic MidPoint - Basic function is creating a midpoint between two points
  • Avg pt  Move - Moves a point to the average center created by multiple points (DLL)
  • Iteration Move - Rotate or translate a part to converge onto a desired measurement value
  • MTM groups - Group MTMs to organize and simplify your navigation tree
  • Combination Measure - Add, Subtract, or find the Minimum or Maximum value of a group of Measurements
  • Non-Output Measurements - Maintain a measurement as active but not output it in the final results
  • Model Variants - Used to quickly change the model to a different scenario.  Different Moves, Tolerances, or Measurements
  • Hide/show feature - Clean up your graphics for easier understanding
  • Mesh color control - Offset part mesh colors in you graphics for easier understanding.
