So I tend to try and structure my work so that I don't repeat mistakes (that I never make) but in this case I have been asked to check over someone's assembly model and want to be thorough. I will be including the internal parts check. I also plan to keep hold of this as a checklist against some of my own bits.
I know that the Design Checker is there to help but can't get it to work on a stand alone Assembly model for some reason, and quite frankly, I'm not sure it covers all the finesse of doing it manually.
I would like some input if you people think there's some real important stuff to add, or input on effective use of the design checker on assemblies.
Here's what I plan to check/report back on:
-Interference Detection (this could take some time, with large assemblies and the fact that fixings are usually modelled as interferences)
-Clearance Detection (not too familiar with this but good to define minimum clearances based on expected positional tolerances)
-Material Check (make sure all parts have materials assigned, this is where the design checker would help if i could work it at the assembly level)
-Fully Defined Sketches (easy visual check in the tree)
-Fully Constrained Parts (easy visual check in the tree - could be a pain with free rotation parts like fasteners)
-Additional Features (general look into functionality and location of features)
-Manufacturability Sense Check
-Standard Sizes (sheet stock / bar sizes, although most of my stuff is machined for geometric tolerancing reasons)
-Round numbers (or 1 decimal place) where possible- in metric measurements for me
What do you guys think? Have you got your own to share? Or do you guys not need lists because you're all super awesome?
