Geomate introduces tolerance analysis wizard

Geomate’s ToleranceCalc is an automated tolerance analysis wizard created to assist CAD users in conducting tolerance studies of parts and assemblies – without performing any calculations.

An important characteristic of the ToleranceCalc wizard is the concurrent calculation of planar tolerance stacks as well as the standard deviation from the ideal manufactured part. ToleranceCalc delivers this information, needed for making intelligent tradeoffs between performance and manufacturability of the design, quickly and easily.

The design decision support information from ToleranceCalc makes it clear whether a part or assembly is in or out of tolerance – the worst-case stack up results deliver design decision support information regarding the performance of the model, while the mean and standard deviation results influence manufacturability issues.

ToleranceCalc does not require any specialized knowledge of dimensional engineering and has a learning curve of minutes, according to its developer.

ToleranceCalc wizard can be used in conjunction with all popular CAD and solid modeling software that are capable of saving geometry in the DXF standard file format.

ToleranceCalc can complement Autodesk Inventor, Mechanical Desktop, AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Pro/E, IDEAS, Catia, TurboCAD, CADKEY, Think3, IronCAD, Unigraphics, Ashlar Vellum, and all CoCreate products.

The price is $395, and the wizard is available immediately.
