    Manufacturing tolerances have a significant impact on cost and quality. Tradeoffs can be made to ensure proper fit; however, calculating stack-ups manually introduces the potential for errors. Inventor Tolerance Analysis is designed to help Inventor users make informed decisions while specifying manufacturing tolerances. Inventor Tolerance Analysis is a CAD-embedded, 1D solution that helps you understand the mechanical fit and performance of your design based on dimensional tolerances. Stack-ups automatically capture the relationships defined in the assembly model and customers using model-based definition (MBD) capabilities can edit tolerance values directly inside Tolerance Analysis, further streamlining the process between design and manufacturing. The Tolerance Analysis plug-in is a subscription benefit for all Product Design & Manufacturing Collection customers. Join us for this Tolerance Analysis Lab, where you’ll be able to get your hands on the software and put it through its paces!
