Rear casing is a key part of the aeroplane engine. Its dimensional precision is significant to the quality of the aeroplane engine. In the rear casing manufacturing process, the assembly variation of its corresponding wax dramatically affects the final dimensions. In this paper, a polar-coordinate based model is proposed to calculate the assembly variation of ring-shaped rear casing wax part. It avoids the variation caused by the coupling relationship between Cartesian coordinate systems and locating position. We also compare the polar-coordinate based model with the ordinary one in practical application. The results show that the polar-coordinate based model can simplify the calculating process and improve the computational accuracy for the assembly variation analysis of the ring-shaped part.
