Autodesk Inventor Tolerance Analysis: Save machining costs while optimizing tolerances

Available only in the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.

What is Autodesk Inventor Tolerance Analysis?

Autodesk Inventor® Tolerance Analysis software helps you make informed decisions while specifying manufacturing tolerances.

  • Accurately calculate the cumulative effects of geometric dimensions and tolerances for models in the stackup loop.

  • Verify manufacturing tolerances for consistent fit and maximum part interchangeability during early design stages.

  • Communicate analysis results and cost-control efforts to engineers.

Why use Autodesk Inventor Tolerance Analysis?

Save on excessive machining costs

Save time and money by avoiding high-precision tolerances that add unnecessary costs and effort to your machining workflow.

Confirm that your components will fit together

Verify the fit of the components in your assemblies using tools that are fully integrated in Inventor.

Collaborate better with automated reports

Communicate analysis results and cost-control efforts to manufacturing and quality engineers.

What you can do with Autodesk Inventor Tolerance Analysis

Optimize assembly fit with tolerance stackup analysis

Reduce tolerance issues during manufacturing by running an analysis of the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) in a 3D model.

Generate advanced statistical results

Calculate the worst-case, RSS, and statistical results of the analysis. Report metrics for statistical results such as Cpk, Σ (Sigma), DPMO, or % Yield.
