Reserve your seat today to attend Seminars on Simulation, Analysis, and GD&T

A thorough coverage of Tolerance Analysis and Simulation concepts, tools and techniques will be presented. This is a day for Sigmetrix users and any other engineers interested in the topics, to come together for a day of demos and discussions with subject matter experts and peers.

  • Explore GD&T Training options. We offer an array of comprehensive training courses on GD&T, MBD / MBE and tolerance analysis. Our training courses and materials are based on many years of industry experience by subject matter experts, they are technically robust, based on ASME and ISO standards, and easy-to-understand.
  • See EZtol in action and Learn how to access a free 7-day trial of the software. EZTol is a 1-Dimensional tolerance analysis program that engineers have been asking us to develop to replace their use of spreadsheets. Manual processes don’t often tell the full story of what is happening with the design. See how your company can achieve immediate benefits from utilizing this cost-effective software.
  • Hear from Stanley Black & Decker’s Stuart Wright, Director of Engineering, CATIA & Windchill Best Practices, about how CETOL 6σ helped accelerate Stanley Black & Decker’s Product Development Process transformation.  SBD is transitioning from using manual spreadsheets and 2D drawings, to applying GD&T to their 3D CAD models; by defining all of the attributes on the models, engineers can now quickly open the model in CETOL to efficiently run precise variation analysis! By using CETOL 6σ globally, SBD cuts down on time-consuming manual processes, and reduces risks, including human error, associated with doing things manually.
  • Experience the newest release in our 3D Tolerance Analysis product suite, CETOL 6σ 10.2. CETOL 6σ works with NX, PTC Creo, SOLIDWORKS and CATIA V5-6.
  • Investigate Maplesoft, including their flagship MapleSim, an advanced system-level modeling tool from Maplesoft that reduces development risk and provides greater insight into system behavior, so you can create better products, faster. With MapleSim, you can investigate how your mechanical models will behave when part of a larger system by incorporating your CAD models into MapleSim’s multidomain, system-level modeling environment. In this way, you can identify and correct problems early in the development process, and take advantage of MapleSim’s analysis tools to optimize your designs.
  • See how virtual commissioning and digital twins can be used to validate new machines, faster. By integrating with common automation software, MapleSim lets you verify the function of your new machine, and test your control code before building a physical prototype. See how one automation company used this technique to bring a new injection molding machine to market by validating their design choices using MapleSim.
  • Learn how to increase adoption of systems engineering tools by using MapleMBSE. This tool lets you take advantage of a Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach to requirements management and validation, without requiring every engineer on the project to be an expert in complex MBSE tools. With more people feeding into the process, you can create, maintain, and validate your requirements and systems models more efficiently and with fewer errors, allowing you to close the gap between systems engineering and model-based design.
