Benefits of this Project

This project explores various concepts of Plastic product design like the creation of ribs, bosses, dog-house, etc. And also showcases various lighting concepts and regulations to be aware of while designing and development of a lighting component of a vehicle.

What will you do in this project?

Step 1 - Analyzing the A-surface and geometry cleanup

Step 2 - Preparing welding track for the Lens

Step 3 - Creating Housing A surface and B surface

Step 4 - Creating ribs, dog house, and bosses on housing for child part mounting

Step 5 - Mounting bulbs, bulb holders, reflectors to housing and other child parts to the housing

Step 6 - Creating Assembly and Child part drawing with BOM

In this project, you will work on an Automotive Tail lamp assembly. You will perform the following steps in this project

  • A-surface given by the styling team is not always smooth or behaves to surface operations properly, that's why the first step is to analyze the A-surface
  • As soon as the surface quality is fixed, you need to create the B surface and then start making the welding track and by doing draft analysis simultaneously   
  • The draft analysis will get defined by defining the tooling direction with respect to the welding track.
  • Now you will move on to create the reflectors for the bulb. The number and position of the bulb is determined by following the ECE regulations.
  • Once the welding track and the reflector creation is completed, you will create the housing vertical and horizontal sections which intern followed by how the housing design proceeds
  • After creating the sections housing A-surface and B-surface are created  with respect to the reflectors 
  • One the Housing is created you will optimize the housing design bu add ribs and other features for increasing its strength and mounting of the tail lamp
  • Now all the parts in a tail lamp are assembled and a sample wiring harness is prepared
  • After completing the assembly you will check your design with the ECE regulations 
  • And Assembly drawing and the child part drawing will be prepared with BOM

In this project, you will be designing and developing an automotive roof with all its components. By doing draft analysis you will check the manufacturability of the part and with that feedback change the model design accordingly. This projects also require you do perform two sets of calculations depending on the region and weather conditions, and finally study the curvature of the roof and its strength with respect to its components.

Designing of an Automotive Tail-lamp

This is a project where the design of an automotive is done from scratch. This project includes first a detailed explanation of the concepts related to lighting reflection and various vehicle types and ECE regulations. Then the regulations considered in designing the reflectors and the lighting unit are explained in detail with appropriate images. After covering all the concepts related to lighting and the lighting parameters, the modeling of the tail-lamp will start. First, the Lens plastic part is prepared with a welding track through which the design of the housing begins. After designing Housing with the surrounding data provided, a sample wiring harness is prepared. The complete assembly of housing, lens, and all the child parts is prepared for creating the assembly drawing and child part drawings. In this project, the concepts of plastic product design, lighting, Advanced surface molding, data important to mention while preparing the drawing and basics of the wiring harness is covered.
