JIG AND FIXTURE CAD/CAM SYSTEM

By T. Endrődy, J. Horváth-Völgyi, I. Vér and O. Berkes

Abstract

Development of CAD/CAM systems for workpiece jig and fixture has to rely on a generalpurpose CAD system, such as an AutoCAD system comprising the needed standard interfaces. So it is relatively easy to change types of the underlying CAD system and the computer. The design process is helped by a 3D functional model. This so-called Jig & Fix CAD system is an open system constructed of a modular (unified) set of 3D elements, permitting to change the set of elements, the database and the manipulation set. This CAD system may be of help in factories in the design and manufacture of NC, CNC machine tools and production cells, as well as in concluding contracts, and in tender transactions
