|As assemblies may be very complex and are made up of a large number of components, you may find it difficult to see possible clashes. This task shows you how to analyze clashes or compute clearance between components.|
|Open the AnalyzingAssembly01.CATProduct document.|
|1.||Select Analyze ->
The Clash Detection dialog box is displayed. It lets you compute possible clashes or clearance. The default option is Clash.
|2.||Multiselect the components
CRIC_FRAME1 and CRIC_BRANCH_3.
The components are displayed in the Compute Clash dialog box.
|3.||Click Apply to compute a possible clash.|
|The icon in the Result frame now flashes red indicating that an interference has been detected.|
|The application detects a clash between the components. This result is shown by two red areas as the arrow shows in the figure opposite:|
|5.||Repeat the operation to compute a
possible clash between CRIC_BRANCH1 and CRIC_BRANCH_3.
The application detects a contact between the components. The icon in the Result frame now shows yellow indicating this.
|6.||Click Cancel to exit.|
the operation to compute a possible clash between CRIC_JOIN1 and
The icon in the Result frame now shows green indicating that no interference has been detected.
