Inventor Tolerance Analysis: CAD-embedded tolerance stackup analysis software

Available only in the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.

What is Inventor Tolerance Analysis?

Inventor® Tolerance Analysis software is designed to help Inventor users make more informed decisions while specifying manufacturing tolerances. This lets you:

  • Accurately calculate the cumulative effects of geometric dimensions and tolerances for all models included 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 manufacturing and quality engineers

Why use 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 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.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

What is Inventor Tolerance Analysis used for?

Inventor Tolerance Analysis software is designed to help Inventor users make more informed decisions while specifying manufacturing tolerances.

Who uses Inventor Tolerance Analysis?

Mechanical engineers use Inventor Tolerance Analysis to determine the fit of components in their assemblies based on specified dimensional tolerances.

How does Inventor Tolerance Analysis save on budget?

Inventor Tolerance Analysis enables engineers to quickly run what-if scenarios to determine tolerance levels that are cost effective while maintaining the fit and performance of the assembly model.
