Design Modular Fixtures on the Internet


Welcome to FixtureNet!

A fixture fixes, or holds a part for machining, assembly, or inspection. A modular fixture is a fixture with reusable elements that fit into a metal lattice as shown below.

Fixturenet is an interactive Java applet that allows users to draw a part. Fixturenet then computes and displays all modular fixtures that will hold that part. Users can click and drag on the resulting displays to visualize reaction forces.
