GD&T: Empowering Designs using SolidWorks

In today’s scenario, manufacturing industry is facing huge problem in terms of the components getting rejected at their customer’s place. If the rejections take place at the design stage itself, not much money is spent. Rejection happening at the tooled up stage, we end up facing some costs. If the same rejection has to occur at the customer’s place, there is a huge erosion of customer’s trust. If companies are looking for consistent product quality, then GD&T becomes the main stay.
GD&T helps in communicating your dimensional and tolerance requirements to the manufacturing and inspection.
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) offers many benefits:
·                 Helps in eliminating recreation of drawings
·                 Design intent is clear and precise
·                 You can calculate the worst-case mating limits

·                 Helps you stay competitive with consistent quality
