Why MBD and GD&T Go Together
If you are looking at Model-Based Definition (MBD), you must also consider Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) and how your organization will incorporate it. What is MBD? It is a 3D-based method of documenting your engineering requirements using annotations on your CAD instead of documenting via drawings. We recommend the annotations be semantic (digitally associated with the geometric features they represent). What is GD&T? It is a set of symbology representing the mathematical definition that identifies the allowable variations of the actual […]

Why Aren’t There Basic Dimensions in MBD?
Jennifer Herron shares her thoughts on one of the questions we get asked a lot in the MBD transition: why aren’t there basic dimensions? We get asked this all the time by folks who haven’t been through our training. Typically, they think basic dimensions have to be measured, which is inaccurate. There are theoretically perfect dimensions that are used to describe […]
CAD Talk: Sigmetrix GD&T Hackathon Part Two
Join us for a 3D CIC: Home Edition virtual event on March 3, 2021, to continue our CAD Hackathon discussion! Bring your GD&T questions for live Q&A with the experts. The discussion continues with a demonstration of GD&T Advisor! GD&T Advisor provides expert guidance on the correct application of GD&T by guiding users through the application of […]
CAD Talk: Sigmetrix GD&T Hackathon
We all like to think we can tolerance our parts in accordance with ASME Y14.5, but the tolerancing game isn’t always as easy as it seems! Brave CAD users submitted annotated assemblies with the goal of using GD&T to satisfy design requirements. Ryan Gelotte, CTO of Action Engineering, and Stephen Werst, Director of Customer Success […]
