Modern Approach to Documentation in Manufacturing
Course | Outcomes and capabilities
Include manufacturing information in your 3D model for downstream applications. In this course you will learn how to add Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) and other manufacturing information to the model. GD&T annotations on the 3D model describe the tolerances, controls, and allowable variation in the model. The term Model-Based Definition (MBD) refers to a fully defined 3D model. The annotated 3D model is often sent directly to manufacturing to create the physical part. You will also learn how to perform tolerance analysis to derive cost impacts of dimensional variation. That includes: tolerance stackup analysis to reduce tolerance issues during manufacturing by running an analysis of the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) in a 3D mode; Advanced statistical results to calculate the worst case, RSS, and statistical results of the analysis. Report metrics for statistical results as Cpk, Sigma, DPMO, or Yield and generate reports to communicate analysis results and cost-control efforts to manufacturing and quality engineers.
