Through a collaboration between Bricsys and Flanders Make, a design for assembly inspection tool has been developed that makes it possible to test a product's suitability for production as early as the design phase, the companies report.

Essentially, Bricsys is fully integrating the Assembly Inspect Tool into its BricsCAD Mechanical software.

The Assembly Inspect Tool provides an in-depth evaluation of assembly capabilities not previously available in Mechanical CAD packages. The tool supports the product design engineer in the design process, avoiding costly assembly design errors that often only come to light in the prototype phase, the companies report. 

The Assembly Inspect Tool also enables small to medium-sized companies in the manufacturing industry to have these insights without the need for specialized software. 

The development of this technology came about through collaboration between Bricsys and Flanders Make, a strategic research center for the manufacturing industry. It results from a project in which Flanders Make and other mutually independent Flemish companies are developing new knowledge that can be practically applied. 

Although researchers have not yet completed the study, they will use the coming year to gather valuable customer feedback to optimize the Assembly Inspect Tool further. 

Watch this video for an in-depth explanation of the technology behind this step in the product design process.
