Abstract

This paper describes the theoretical considerations and implementation of a support tool to predict manufacturability of deep-drawing parts. The approach is faster than detailed simulation of the process and is based solely on geometrical criteria, so it can be used in very early stages of development process, when detailed process information is not available yet. The process first divides the faces into subfaces which subsequently are rated in terms of manufacturability. The proceeding was implemented using the free geometric modeling kernel OpenCASCADE to provide a good user experience.

Keywords: process analysis, deep drawing, geometric modeling kernel, feasibility analysis
