GD&T Advisor Software
Why GD&T Advisor?
A necessary function of the design process, Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is often perceived as a tedious, manual exercise where specifications are drawn by hand and applied to CAD drawings as a separate step.
Enter GD&T Advisor – the preferred GD&T software solution that empowers designers to communicate permissible levels of imperfection in real-world manufactured parts, all from within the CAD environment.
GD&T Advisor is an interactive software tool that provides expert guidance on the correct application of GD&T. It guides users through the application of GD&T from within the CAD environment, ensuring standards compliance while greatly improving productivity.
With GD&T Advisor, increased productivity, improved design quality, and reduced costs are a reality. GD&T Advisor greatly improves productivity when applying GD&T to a model design, reducing the number of mouse clicks and time required by up to 75%. GD&T Advisor simplifies the understanding of the complex GD&T standards by providing readily available guidance during every step of the application process. Save valuable time in design checking and accelerate the design process, while reducing scrap and engineering changes (ECNs) often associated with dimensioning and tolerancing errors.
Save valuable time in quality checking and accelerate the design process, while reducing scrap and engineering change orders often familiar in the manufacturing phase – saving thousands to tens of thousands of dollars every year.
With GD&T Advisor, increased productivity, improved manufacturing accuracy, and reduced costs are a reality. The ability to perform a standardized GD&T analysis with substantially fewer clicks results in a tremendous drop in analysis time.
Quality checking becomes a fast and pain-free practice – saving valuable time and accelerating the design process, while the scrap and Engineering Change Orders often familiar in the manufacturing phase are reduced – saving thousands and tens of thousands of dollars every year.
GD&T SOFTWARE FUNCTIONALITY AND CONTROL
GD&T Advisor addresses four critical aspects of GD&T application:
• Creation – efficient, intelligent application of functionally, syntactically correct GD&T in the 3D model environment
• Validation – visualization and function-oriented evaluation of GD&T
• Utilization – intelligent, CAD-native annotations are usable in downstream processes such as drawing production, tolerance analysis, computer aided inspection, and other design activities
