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.
