Anchor bracket design approach.
Hi Grabcad users,
I want to design anchor bracket in catia. I have attached the design. Please refer it.
Please help me with best starting approach and the following steps.
Waiting for positive reply.
From the sketch you can get all dimensions required to model part. What you need to decide is if you want to copy as is, a cast anchor bracket, or is it better to re-design to make version profile cut from plate and welded together. This is a decision based on quantity to make, tools available in workshop / factory and analysis of costs involved. The CAD system does not matter, this approach applies to Solid Works, Inventor, any other CAD package, or even a quick hand drawn sketch
The attached images are of a possible version laser cut from 6mm plate and pressed to shape. If the bracket needed to be stronger you may need to weld in a rib between the flanges, but if this as is is strong enough this would be a cheap way to make this part, a few off to hundreds or even thousands off.
