Part 2: Updates to Pattern Move and Worst-Case in 3DCS Version 7.8

September 30th, 2021

The second part of the 7.8 Webinar Series will focus on the updates to the Worst-Case tools in 3DCS as well as the Pattern Move. 

Worst Case Analysis

3DCS has been updated with more options for your worst-case analysis. These tolerance stack-ups set the values at their greatest values, showing the largest range of variation possible. Additionally, there are worst-case scenarios that cause the greatest amount of risk and product failure which may not be from setting all values to their largest amount. 

Learn about the options within 3DCS to perform a Worst Case study including: 

  • GeoFactor and BiModal Analysis
  • Statistical vs. Worst Case Results
  • The impact of Bonus (LMC/MMC) and Datum Shift (MMB/LMB) on a Worst Case study
  • 3D effects for a Worst Case analysis

3DCS Pattern Move

The Pattern Move is an important tool for any engineer using 3DCS. This assembly process allows you to simulate patterns of holes and pins, and see how they align and fit with your given tolerance specifications. This can help you understand whether parts will fit in assembly, or require adjustments to specific holes, or changes to slots in order to assemble correctly without the need to enlarge holes or alter the parts. 

New features in the Rigid Pattern move include the ability to float slots onto pins and tabs. This is what is covered in this presentation:

  • New Features
  • Float-Hole-Slot-Pin Pattern

7 Habits of the Highly Effective Engineer

Based on Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People written in 1989, this work contained seven habits to promote effective behavior and was added to in 2004 with an 8th habit. Many leaders I met over the years took this same class and it shaped them as well. Thinking of my life and work, this was one of the most fundamental impacts and drove the creation of these 8 habits for engineers.

-- Paul Vickers, DCS Sr. Dimensional Engineer

These are the 7 habits of the highly effective engineer. Each of Covey’s has been translated to drive great behavior in the engineering world. Download the eBook the read all 7 plus the 8th habit!

What is the AIAG Quality Summit?

Join us for two content-packed days during National Quality Month this year as we explore, “Charging Up Your QMS: Innovative Quality Tools for a Digital Industry” at the 2021 Virtual Quality Summit!
 
With two parallel tracks – one in English and one in Spanish – the 2021 summit will include both unique regional sessions and concurrent delivery of common content from OEMs and the IAOB.
 
This year’s event comes at a crucial time when major industry stakeholders have announced plans to aggressively transition vehicle powertrains toward an electric future. These changes will have a lasting impact on automotive vehicle manufacturers, and the expectations and requirements for their suppliers of all tiers, for years to come.
 
To support these technological transitions and evolving quality expectations, AIAG’s 2021 Virtual Global Quality Summit will explore innovations in quality tools and methods, including:
 
  • The impact of additive manufacturing and software product development on product development and validation in APQP and PPAP
  • The effect of digital/AI process control technologies on product traceability requirements in Control Plan and Warranty management
  • The impact of virtual auditing methods and technologies on the strategies and requirements for internal, supplier, and 3rd party QMS certification audits
  • And much, much more
