I havent seemed to find a plugin (would be great if Im missing one) but wondering if anyone has any input on showing/detecting interference or collision between groups or components. For instance two parts mating in a machined pocket on say a compound angle. Going into Xray and insuring that your geometry is correct to be sent to CAM can be tedious at best.

My best success so far in these situations has been to use solid tools to generate mating parts but in instances where I dont use solid tools it’d sure be great to have a plugin or means of highlighting interference points or gaps outside a pre-set range between two parts if that makes sense?


I don’t know of any extention for that purpose. But another aproach that might help is ‘Intersect Faces’ between two groups/components. The intersection geometry at least reveals collision.
And section planes also may help.
