GD&T Advisor software greatly improves accuracy and productivity when applying GD&T. The software simplifies the understanding of the complex standards by providing readily available guidance during every step of the application process. GD&T Advisor offers function‐oriented guidance, allowing the user to correctly apply GD&T in the 3D model environment. The Interactive Help feature, created by Effective Training, Inc. (now a part of the SAE International), provides instructive, educational support, consisting of a content‐sensitive use guide that links to an entire GD&T Encyclopedia.

“The correct use and application of GD&T is important to our processes” remarked Bill Ott, Link’s Director of Engineering. “We chose Sigmetrix because of their subject expertise and long history of successful mechanical engineering products.
