VISTAGY, Inc. (Waltham, MA) has released SyncroFIT® 2010, which improves the efficiency and accuracy of airframe assembly development by enabling commercial 3D CAD users to fully define and manage fasteners, joints, and interfaces between parts within complex assemblies. The latest version of SyncroFIT includes new customer-driven enhancements in four primary areas: airframe assembly management, CAD integration, design validation, and user experience.

The new capabilities shorten and simplify the assembly design effort from the earliest stages of the joint definition phase through detailed design by as much as 70 percent compared to manual methods. SyncroFIT is a production-proven, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for managing the complexities of airframe interfaces with a particular emphasis on fastened structures. SyncroFIT has broad capabilities to efficiently author, validate, and communicate both the type design definition and the manufacturing assembly states of the airframe.
