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.
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:
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:
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!
