D3D 3d Printer Infographic. By Jean-Baptiste Vervaeck.

Introduction

Conditions of satisfaction for complete CAD for a given project means that we have a complete part library:

  • Parts - for building Modules, for producing Fabrication Drawings
  • Modules - Made of multiple parts, these are sub-assemblies of the Final Assemlby. These are used for Exploded Part Animations, Language Agnostic Instructionals (LAIs), and other work.
  • Final Assembly - The completed build. for Exploded Part Animations, LAIs. Note that the Final Assembly may have to use Simplified Assets in some cases to remain workable
  • Simplified Assets: Parts, Modules, Assemblies - these are versions with details removed. Some may be grouped to facilitate handling. In some cases they are drawn from scratch as only abstract, blocky models - to save significantly on file size.
  • File Size Requirements - all assets meet File Size Requirements for that particular asset type. Files can't be so large that FreeCAD can't open them or work with them effectively.
  • File Organization - Spreadsheet of all Assets (both Simlified and Complete assets) is available
  • Construction Best Practices - procedures for effective part building in FreeCAD are followed for each file.
  • File Build Documentation - Each file is documented for how to create that file, so novices can get up to speed in making modifications. A short video with voiceover is the best way to document a part build. This is important because this creates design literacy in the general populace.
