How is Excel Failing Your Tolerance Stack Ups? Now ON-DEMAND

[Webinar] How is Excel Failing Your Tolerance Stack Ups

Understanding the difference between 1D vs 2D vs 3D vs Worst Case Tolerance Analysis, and how you may become misled.

Tolerance Analysis can be a simple function. Using RSS and Excel, tolerances can be calculated as a stack-up to determine the range of variation. However, as soon as this method is used for real parts in an assembly, this method begins to lose its validity. Incorporating the variation from 3 dimensional effects can make the math extremely difficult and hard to reproduce quickly, leaving out variation that can cause expensive problems during manufacturing.

1D vs 2D vs 3D Tolerance Analysis, How is Excel Failing your Tolerance Stack Ups? [Webinar]

1D vs 2D vs 3D Tolerance Analysis Explained

Excel Stack-Ups do not include influences from 3D part associations, nor does it include process variation, that can greatly impact a design causing high costs to correct in scrap, rework and recalls.

Academic and Generational Influence on Model Based Definition Adoption

Academic and Generational Influence on Model Based Definition Adoption

Is there an increase in GD&T or MBD in Academia, and is there any influence from the younger generation on MBD adoption

The fifth and last part in the DCS series of Model Based Definition (MBD) articles, Norm Crawford, an expert in MBD implementation, discusses MBD with us at DCS, and shares his experiences in both successes and failures in Model Based Definition.
