3D modeling is the future of design and ASME Y14.41 sets the rules. Y14.41 extends ASME Y14.5M into the 3D world.
The development of this National Standard was initiated at the request of industry and the U.S. Government. Developers of this standard include independent consultants and individuals from General Motors Corporation, Dassault-Systems, The Boeing Company, U.S. Department of the Army – TACOM-ARDEC, Rockwell Collins Inc., Raytheon Company, Thiokol Propulsion, EDS PLM Solutions, General Dynamics Land Systems, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company, Ford Motor Company, Caterpillar Inc., DEPCO Inc., Rolls-Royce Corporation, CNH Global NV, Purdue University, and Hutchinson Technology Inc.
The Y14.41 standard establishes requirements, and references documents applicable to the preparation and revision of digital product definition data, referred to as data sets. Y14.41 defines the exceptions and additional requirements to existing ASME standards for using product definition data sets or drawings in 3D digital format. This standard supports two methods of application: model only, and model and drawing in digital format.
The structure of the standard begins with the requirements common to both methods (model only, and model and drawing in digital format), and then branches to the other sections that have differing requirements for each method.
It also provides a guide for the many computer aided design (CAD) software packages to develop better modeling and annotation practices for CAD and engineering disciplines.
Adoption Notice: ASME Y14.41 was adopted on 7 July 2003 for use by the Department of Defense, (DoD). Proposed changes by DoD activities must be submitted to the DoD Adopting Activity: Commander, US Army TACOM-ARDEC, ATTN: AMSTA-AR-QAW-E, Picatinny Arsenal, NJ 07806-5000.
