What will you do in this project?

  • This project starts by first analyzing the styling surface given. The styling surface might have few irregularities in the surface that you will be asked to fix before proceeding with the inner panel design
  • Then the design of the inner panel will begin where you will first develop an effective sealing flange by checking all the boundaries and by following the shape of the inner panel design.
  • By creating multiple flanges and by your surface modeling skills you will learn how to complete the concept design of the inner panel and what are the necessary parameters to consider while designing.
  • After the concept of the inner panel is developed, then you will study about the child components like a hinge, latch, gas-stay, etc. locations and how to prepare reinforcements for the same. Which complete the overall design of the tailgate
  • Here you will perform draft analysis and see if the model that you developed is suitable for manufacturing or not, and by doing this you will learn about what changes and improvements required to optimize your model
  • After complete the analysis part. you will complete the outer panel design by modeling the hemming flange and respective hemming reliefs on the model.
  • The final step of this project includes assembling all the components together and preparing a formal report for the tailgate design


  • Analyzing and improving the styling part given and preparing flanges for welding the outer panels together
  • Starting inner panel design by developing the sealing flange according to the shape and the boundary of the outer panel
  • Developing the concept of the inner panel design by following all the design parameters
  • Modeling all the mounting for the child parts like hinge, gas-stay, wiper-motor and latch reinforcements and respective embosses
  • Completing the Tailgate assembly by designing the hemming flange for the outer panel and Assembling all the components together

Project Highlights

The project is a advanced level project
  • This project is great for undergraduate students, M.Tech, or MS students.
  • If you are a working professional, this project will be helpful to learn advance accepts of surface modeling and other workbenches of  NX CAD or CATIA.
  • You will learn the engineering aspects of designing BIW components and various concepts and parameters in designing any component 
  • You will learn how to approach the design by looking into the manufacturability of the parts and how to improve your design.
Pre-requisites

 

  •  Must be familiar with Engineering drawing subjects.
  • Having a basic knowledge of NX CAD and CATIA or other design software will help in completing the project in a fast phase
Skills to develop

 

  • You will learn the basic principle of Design for Manufacturing
  • This project will change your overall perspective of a car. It will give you a deeper appreciation of the design and the safety measures taken in vehicle development. 
  • You will have a deeper understanding of a BIW component is designed and what are the various parameters behind it's design

Modeling the RUECKWANDTUER Tailgate

In this project, you will be designing all major components of the RUECKWANDTUER Tailgate. The major focus of the overall design will in the engineering behind each feature you make on the components, their positions, and most importantly their manufacturability. This project is one of the engineering design projects where only the knowledge of the CAD tool is not enough. you need to understand the function of each and every component you design. Each and every feature you design should have an engineering reason behind it, similarly, you will learn about various components of a tailgate and various design strategies while designing. In this, we discuss a case study about the effects that a change of material brings to the property and manufacturability of the component and how it behaves in various load conditions. After understanding the components and its behavior we focus on the overall assembly of the part and how all the components should be mounted. For example, the relation between the hinges and the latch which indicates the trajectory of the tailgate should be meet and the necessary mountings should be designed keeping that parameter in mind. At the end of this project, your takeaway will be the various design parameters discussed, design methodology used in designing a tailgate, different ways of creating similar features in CAD, and an improved Surface modeling skill.

  • Working on NX CAD surface modeling workbench
  • Engineering aspects involved in designing an BIW component
  • Developing the concept of the inner panel design by following all the design parameters
