Integration of real machine behavior into the material removal simulation
Project start: June 2017
Project end: May 2020
The aim of the “AdaptCAD” project is to identify the real manufactured workpiece geometry by continuously recording the positions of the machining axes, without measurement, and adapting the CAD-model accordingly. This procedure improves process chain planning, reduces waste and costs and optimizes the use of resources. ModuleWorks is developing the simulation component for this project. The simulation component enables users to trace the measured position data back to the desired workpiece geometry and to use the adapted geometry to adjust the next manufacturing steps.
