    Overmolding - Sample drawing

    Bernie Daraz

      Hello All,

       

      I have a client that has asked for a drawing for a molded part, now they're adding a flat steel insert. I know there are some requirements as to positioning the insert and protecting from zero-thickness areas and some concerns to protect from creating peel points. I will model it as an assembly or possibly using bodies.

       

      Having never seen or done such a drawing, is there any place that may have a drawing that I can see or does anyone have one to share. I'm on SW 2012.

       

      Thanks!

          </span>the method you use is governed by your MRP system – Does the MRP list a

          BOM for your finished component, or just a single part number? We have a BOM

          (Metal component + quantity of moulded plastic) so I use the assembly method.

          If you just have a single part number then the multibody method is probably

          better.<o:p></o:p></font></font></font></p><p><font color="#000000" size="3" face="Times New Roman">

            Thanks guys! I think I found something from an old friend.

             

            I guess I can drop this now.
