STEP-BASED MODELING & SIMULATION FOR VIRTUAL PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Li Li, Tianyuan Xiao, Wenhui Fan, Hongbo Sun, Cheng Ma

Abstract

A novel STEP-based modeling and simulation method is proposed to improve the data consistency and the model reusability in Virtual Product Development (VPD). Based on the proposed method, a STEP-based product model is automatically generated from STEP files and CAD/CAE models. In the method, besides product shape data other effective data can be extracted from STEP files and CAD/CAE models for HLA-based simulation. An applicable prototype system is designed to support this method. A case study is performed to demonstrate the feasibility of the method.
