All assemblies made of parts in CAD models should be free of collisions, a form of unwanted design error.
With our Collision Detector, your CAD and BIM applications check assemblies for collisions, even at early stages, to ensure designs are free of errors. Collisions are identified as areas of contact and volumes of overlap. Early detection of collisions reduces costs during later design phases and especially when it comes to constructing physical products.
Collision Detector’s distance measurement function checks user-specified gaps between parts and subassemblies.
Our Collision Detector supports both B-rep (exact geometry) representations and inexact polygonal meshes.
With B-reps, Collision Detector delivers the exact results. If accuracy requirements are not high, you can use geometric objects in polygonal representation.
