Zero Bond – What Is It?
Zero degrees are also referred to as a perfectly straight line. The main reason for the term zero bond is that it is more difficult to create than other angles, so it does not follow a normal mathematical formula.
A zero degree can be created by creating two identical pieces of identical material and connecting them together using a hinge. The hinge has a hinge pin that is the “zero degree” for all angles between it and the other hinge pins. The angle of the pin will be exactly equal to the angle of the hinge itself, and the angles of the other two hinges will cancel out so that there is no difference at all. This method is most commonly used to connect two pieces of material that are different lengths, but can also be used to join two identical pieces of material together.
In this example, a zero degree will be achieved if you had two pieces of material that were exactly identical length. One piece has a zero degree angle to the other piece, and when they are put together the two pieces have a zero degree angle to the hinge itself. A zero degree is created and because the hinge is also at zero degrees, then both pieces fit perfectly into each other. This creates a perfect match in material thickness of material, and the angle that is created by the two hinges is the zero degree angle for the whole system.
Another use for zero degrees is to connect two identical objects together in the CAD system. By using one of the two hinge pins at a zero degree angle to join the two objects together, the objects are now joined together and will stay connected until the next hinge pin is removed.
A third example of using zero degrees is in order to make two identical components of a machine or component. The two components are connected at two different points that are 90 degrees apart, such that their positions will be exactly opposite of one another when they are placed together. and will form a perfectly matched pair. Each component will have a zero degree angle with the other component, which will provide a perfect match in their positions with each other, and create the zero-degree connection.
The last example is to combine two identical components that are slightly different in height, but have an equal height, so that the two components are the same height when placed together. This way the two components will have the same height without any gaps and have the same height when they are placed together. These three examples are some of the common uses of a zero bond.
In addition to these examples, zero degrees can also be used in conjunction with other angles that are associated with other CAD programs, such as parallel and cross-axis angles. These angles can be used to create the same type of zero degrees. In many cases, if an angle is used that is not able to meet the need of the CAD system, then a combination of other angles can be used in conjunction with the zero degree in order to create the same zero degree.
