Tolerance Analysis

Analyze and Document Geometric Tolerances Directly on 3D CAD Models

Variety may be the spice of life, but wide-ranging variation in physical dimensions, properties or space between parts is the last thing you want when the components of your product must fit together correctly. You want your parts and assemblies to be within certain tolerances, or acceptable degrees of variation.

PTC Creo TAE -Model

Creo EZ Tolerance Analysis Extension, is an extension to Creo Parametric. With Creo TAE you can evaluate the impact of tolerances and dimensioning on product designs before the product reaches either prototyping or manufacturing.

Creo TAE provides two analysis tools: worst-case analysis and statistical analysis. Worst-case analysis, often used for critical components, considers what happens when each of the components in the stack-up reaches the maximum acceptable measurement. In statistical analysis each component’s variation is modeled as a statistical distribution. These distributions then are added together to predict the distribution of the assembly measurement.

Using these tools, designers can produce products that meet customer requirements within acceptable margins. The result: shorter product development cycles, lower product cost, and higher product quality.
