SIGMETRIX RELEASES LATEST VERSION OF GD&T ADVISOR SOFTWARE FOR PTC® PRO/ENGINEER® AND CREO®
New Enhancements Provide Increased Flexibility and Improved Functionality
MCKINNEY, Texas – September 11, 2012 – Sigmetrix, a PTC® PartnerAdvantage™ Gold Partner and recognized leader in mechanical variation and tolerance analysis software, today announced the latest release of its GD&T Advisor software solution for Pro/ENGINEER® and Creo®. The result of Sigmetrix’ precise constraint technologies, deep CAD integration experience, and the collaboration with Alex Krulikowski at Effective Training, Inc. (ETI), GD&T Advisor is an interactive tool that provides expert guidance on the correct application of GD&T. It guides designers through a standards-based application of GD&T from within the CAD environment, increasing GD&T standards conformity and accuracy while reducing the time to apply GD&T by 75%.
“The global response to GD&T Advisor has been extraordinary across all major vertical markets,” said Sigmetrix CEO, Tim Bogard, “Commercial companies around the world have already installed GD&T Advisor and we are especially pleased to have a major government agency such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) as a GD&T Advisor customer.”
GD&T Advisor v1.1.0 offers enhanced functionality, better messaging, and increased flexibility in the correct application of model-centric GD&T annotations, including downstream reusable metadata. It continues to improve on the speed, ease of use, and accuracy in the creation of robust GD&T, providing richer feedback, and context-sensitive reference materials, as well as improved support of dimensional engineering processes. For example, the user can now temporarily delay the specification of the tolerance value and material condition until the GD&T specification is nearly complete and a tolerance analysis can be performed, better matching industry best practices.
