Case Study: Quad Triangle............Next >
Customer: The Grand Entrance Manufacturer Of Custom Doors and Accessories
Goals of Project: To reverse engineer the quad triangle part from a photograph the Grand Entrances customer took during a vacation
Project Time Period : 1 hr on Solidworks 30 hrs on Router
Processes Used: 3D Modeling / 3D Routing
Software Used: Solidworks / Artcam
Material for process: Wood Clear Alder
Process approach: In this case, the Grand Entrance gave NECO a picture depicting what the part was to look like. After establishing the dimensions that the customer thought they would be working with. NECO 3D Modeled the part and then produced a foam prototype to show the customer. After some changes were made to the dimensions of the model. The model was imported into Artcam allowing NECO to array many parts on one larger piece of Alder wood, then tool paths were developed for the 3D router. The Quad Triangle was then routered in clear Alder wood.
Alternate Process approach: This project could have been completely developed in Artcam by drawing the model using artcams extensive number of sketch tool. and then relieving and establishing tool paths in just one software.
