Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) can be a painstaking process, but it doesn’t need to be. Worse, the very nature of this complex process means it is prone to error. With our partners at Sigmetrix, PTC has developed the Creo GD&T Advisor Extension to resolve these issues and put your focus back to where it should be – on your design.
Creo GD&T Advisor provides both expert guidance on the application of GD&T and validation that it has been done correctly. When your 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 by up to 75%. The software 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 Y14.5-2018, ISO 1101:2017, and their associated standards.
The GD&T Advisor Plus allows you to reuse the accurate parts of your legacy GD&T annotations while highlighting errors that they may have and providing recommendations on how best to resolve the problems uncovered.
With Creo GD&T Advisor, you’ll apply GD&T correctly the first time, saving money and reducing tedium.
