    This class will help attendees to understand the problems caused by tolerances in manufacturing, and how to plan them out using the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection subscription benefit of the Tolerance Analysis plug-in for Inventor software. After discussing where tolerance problems come from, and discovering how tolerancing problems can affect assembly of manufactured parts, we’ll show how to analyze assemblies using Inventor Tolerance Analysis. We’ll demonstrate how to apply tolerance to native and non-native CAD data. We’ll demonstrate how Tolerance Analysis provides bidirectional support with Inventor software’s 3D annotation and geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) model-based definition (MBD). We’ll discuss how to interpret the results of the analysis and show how to share a report of the results. We’ll give tips and tricks on how to get the best out of Tolerance Analysis. If we have time, we’ll discuss what’s already available inside Inventor for Tolerance Analysis that is available to non-Product Design & Manufacturing Collection customers.
