White Paper: Quality Includes Tolerance Analysis Along with 3D CAD, PMI and GD&T
Companies with the best record of quality production have a firm foundation in engineering communication that extends from the CAD technician all the way through to the shop floor.
Unlike person-to-person communication, engineering communication relies on a different language, and the basis of that language is geometric dimension and tolerancing (GD&T).
GD&T is fundamental to making sure the tolerances required for a design can be repeatedly and accurately manufactured. While GD&T used to be an exercise done on paper, today the process is migrating to the digital realm now that many CAD applications include the ability to input product manufacturing information (PMI) directly into a model.
Because PMI allows GD&T data to be baked into a model, software can be used to analyze tolerances, ensuring that 3D designs can be transformed into a quality, mass manufacturable product.
In this white paper, Ryan Reid will explain how adopting GD&T and PMI can improve the quality of the goods you manufacture by digitizing the tolerancing process.
