How to create contoured standoffs for jigs and fixtures.

Quickly creating fixtures for assembly, machining, and inspection purposes is an everyday use of FDM 3D printing, but complex part geometry can get in the way and make this time-consuming. This tutorial video explains how to create a conformal fixture with contoured standoffs that ensure your part stays in place. After watching, you will know how to:

  • Quickly create a custom fixture for CMM inspection from complex, organic geometry.
  • Create contoured standoffs to accurately and predictably hold a part for inspection purposes.
  • Importing a list of points rapidly defines where a part should be held.

Let’s get started.

And there you go! Now, you can use nTop to create 3D-printed fixtures with contoured standoffs to hold complex geometry accurately.

If you still have questions, our support team will gladly help you.

Thanks for watching!
