Key Software Capabilities
- Design automation
Designing fixtures to support the assembly of products is a task that often takes longer than it should. As part complexity increases, the time needed to manually design and fabricate these fixtures also multiplies.
In this nTop Live, John Graham, Director of Application Engineering, shows you how to rapidly design complete fixtures with configurable mounting features in nTop. He presents a reusable design workflow that makes the creation of fixtures quick, easy, and robust.
Watch and learn how to:
- Create mounting features on an fixture to properly hold it in place
- Control the size, position, and type of the mounting fixture
- Automatically design a complete fixture with mounting features & custom standoffs
