In space projects, checking inserts can be tedious, even more so for high density of inserts. This paper deals with the development of an automation tool for insert checking. All the principles used to perform inserts calculations are based on the ECSS-Design Handbook . Those principles are summarised and adapted to the tool. The tool requires only a point cloud extracted from a CADmodel giving the position of inserts to be checked and the loads calculated thanks to an FEM-model at those same points to calculate safety margins. This paper details the process followed by the tool to calculate inserts strength and describes possible measures for improvements.
