FixtureBuilder is a 3D-modeling software package that allows offline creation and documentation of fixturing setups. The software can be used with a CAD model of the part to be inspected, which is imported into FixtureBuilder, so that the fixture can be built around it. The entire setup, along with the part, can then be exported into inspection programming software, using universal file formats such as IGES, SAT, STEP, and so on.
FixtureBuilder offers a range of customer benefits and ease of use thanks to:
- clear and well-organized component libraries
- intelligent drag-and-drop functions
- quick manipulation of parts and easy-to-use constraint mechanism
- user experience is enhanced by the software’s full CAD compatibility and the availability of custom libraries.
The “Build it” function is one of the key benefits available to users. It automates the production of work instructions and bill of materials for every fixture setup, to help ensure compliance with quality standards and assist with product ordering.
