Quality 4.0 - How CAD GD&T Drives Model Based Definition with 3DCS Tolerance Analysis Software

DCS Partners with Quality Digest to Deliver Closed Loop Webinar October 25th

Quality 4.0 connects processes and tools, streamlining modeling creation and collaboration. See how tolerance analysis software validates and optimizes GD&T, simulating a digital twin and providing the risk of failure based on part tolerances and the assembly process. These simulations then feed downstream applications, creating SPC and manager reports and critical to quality features to direct measurement plans and manufacturing. The model continues to provide value by utilizing measured plant data to root cause production issues and testing solutions.

How Many Companies Are Using Embedded GD&T (CATIA FTA, NX PMI, CREO PMI) ?

How Many Companies Have Been Using Embedded GD&T in Their Process?

DCS asked its clients how often they use Embedded GD&T and if not, when are they planning on implementing Embedded GD&T

What Is Embedded GD&T?

Embedded GD&T is geometric dimensioning and tolerancing applied to a CAD model using platform specific tools and features, often presented as Functional Tolerance Annotations (FTA) in CATIA or Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) in NX and CREO. The GD&T is linked to its referencing features, so that it can be used to describe those part's tolerances, Datum features and locating properties.  It can be a powerful tool for supporting tolerance analysis
