SIGMETRIX LAUNCHES GD&T ADVISOR v2.0
New Version Offers Greater Functionality and Support for Multiple Standards
MCKINNEY, Texas – June 12, 2013 – Sigmetrix, a PTC® PartnerAdvantage™ Gold Partner and a recognized leader in GD&T and tolerance analysis software, today announced the latest release of its GD&T Advisor software for PTC Creo® design software. Developed in partnership with Alex Krulikowski at Effective Training, Inc. (ETI), GD&T Advisor v2.0 represents the second major launch of this interactive tool that expertly guides designers through a standards-based application of GD&T from within the CAD environment.
GD&T Advisor v2.0 expands the applicability of GD&T Advisor to a broader range of conditions. The filtering and advice can now be based on either the ASME Y14.5M-1994 or the ISO GPS standard increasing the international reach of the software. GD&T Advisor has been enhanced to allow the inclusion of datum targets in the dimension scheme. In addition, GD&T Advisor can now be used directly on sheet metal parts. The management of notes has also been greatly improved with the inclusion of a new Notes Manager allowing the user to control the visibility of both general and design-specific notes on the CAD model.
“The positive reactions to GD&T Advisor continue to multiply, as more companies realize the importance of integrating a GD&T program into their design and manufacturing processes,” said Sigmetrix President and CEO, Chris Wilkes. “The latest release will provide users with expanded functionality while also meeting the need of those requiring compliance to the complex ISO standards. By providing support for both the ASME Y14.5 and the ISO tolerancing standards, we are further increasing our global reach, enabling more companies worldwide to utilize the application for their design needs.”
