A component that is only a few centimeters out of place could create a collision with a neighboring component. It would make the assembly impossible. As a result, the CAD team will have to keep working on the design to find and resolve the issue.
Manufacturing relies on proper clearance between parts.
Modern CAD design tools have replaced hand measurements on drawings and physical mockups. Now, designers are able to digitally identify collision issues more quickly with clearance analysis. This greatly improves their productivity as a result.
These CAD tools are adept at collision testing on individual assemblies, but…
