Abstract

The spatial relations between the individual parts in an assembled product can be critical for the functional and aesthetic quality of a product. These relations are the result of a form division. How well the relations are realized when manufactured is partly settled by the geometrical robustness of the concept. The geometrical robustness is affected by the position of the locating points and the shape of the geometries themselves. This paper presents a tool for form division from a geometrical robustness point of view in the early phases of the PD process, where the geometry is not set. The tool itself combines both industrial design aspects as well as manufacturing aspects and allows design changes in order to increase the robustness.

Keywords: form division, geometrical robustness, tolerance analysis, and split-line
