Abstract

Designers have to consider geometrical deviations during the design process. However, many designers cannot easily imagine the impact of these deviations. Therefore, the use of tolerance representation and analysis software tools is necessary. Besides tolerance description and analysis approaches in CAT-software tools there exist several approaches for direct tolerance representation and analysis in the 3D-CAD-system. The objective of this paper is to show the potential of applying vectorial tolerance representations during product development and the necessary steps to use this potential.

Keywords: tolerance representation and management, computer aided design (CAD), CAx, vectorial representation
