Abstract

As the demand on productivity in the manufacturing industry always increases, it’s important with tools that shorten the time from concept to production phases. Visualization has become a popular tool for fast and easy verification regarding many aspects of a product in the design phase. In this paper three algorithms are developed and investigated to capture and visualize the total volume a part or assembly creates when it is affected by variation or motion. The algorithms are general and work on all kinds of problem where there is variation or motion involved. The data used to create the total volume is collected either from simulation data or from real measurement data.

Keywords: visualization, computer aided tolerancing, variation, convex hull
