A QIF Case Study – Maintaining the Digital Thread from OEM to Supplier

Passing 3D model data without a drawing from an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to a supplier generally creates interoperability chaos - how do you streamline this process?

Webinar May 30 - Measurements - How to Use Measurements Other Than Point-to-Point in 3DCS

3DCS has a variety of Measurement methods to simulate different inspection devices or determine different outcomes

Modeling a Variation Analysis CAD Model creates a digital twin of your product. This virtual prototype behaves like your product, and can be used to simulate different builds of your product; essentially creating a digital assembly line and seeing all of the products made and how much variation each product has.

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.
