Extraction and Synthesis of Disassembly Information from CAD Assembly

Project status: Current

Thrust area: Design Optimization

Research team: Jeremy Rickli

Design for sustainability and circular economy can be facilitated through new CAD applications. This project address this need by extracting basic disassembly information from existing CAD assembly data that is required for disassembly analysis and optimization. This enables the development of a CAD disassembly package for designers and engineers to analyze, brainstorm, and experiment will alternative designs for disassembly.
