Establishment of Design Method for Transmission by 3D Media

Article of Honda R&D Technical Review Vol.14 No.2


Design trials with 3D media in the product development of transmissions revealed that increased design times became an issue. Consequently, research was performed on measures to resolve this issue, including the building of a 3D design process, development of the necessary 3D CAD functions needed for such a process, establishment of 3D drawing rules, and review of the development process. Design methods were then built that utilize 3D media consistently from layout to product drawing. With use of the newly built 3D design methods, design time was reduced to the level of design using conventional 2D media or even less. This made it possible to build a highly efficient development system for use from design to manufacture.
