Creo Parametric 4.0 is your go-to release for model-based definition. There are a ton of new features for realizing a MBD model. Refer to the following free downloads:
Creo GD&T Advisor is an extension to Creo Parametric 4.0 that provides expert guidance on the application of GD&T and validation that it has been done correctly. When the model is complete, you can be confident that it complies with the relevant standard and is fully constrained. Creo GD&T Advisor also improves your productivity when applying GD&T, reducing the number of mouse clicks and time required to apply and validate GD&T. It also simplifies the understanding of the complex GD&T standards by providing readily available guidance during every step of the application process. Rulesets included are ASME Y14.5-2009, ISO 1101-2012, and their associated standards.
In a drawing centric world, the non-geometric attributes (GD&T) that are required to manufacture the products, such as dimensions, tolerances, datums, etc., are on the 2D Drawing. However, in an MBD world this non-geometric information, that is critical for downstream Manufacturing and Inspection processes, must be contained within the model in a clear and un-ambiguous way.
Key benefits of GD&T Advisor
In this blog post, I’ll highlight some of the key features of Creo GD&T Advisor:
