3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress

October 12-15, 2020

It’s evident to us that Model-Based Enterprise implementers are eager for industry experience and collaboration that can enable their digital transformations. For 16 years, 3D CIC has been a gathering place for industry practitioners to network and learn.

Action Engineering is planning to host 3D CIC as scheduled in October. However, we are already looking at what-if scenarios should the ongoing global crisis affect the in-person 3D CIC experience. We plan to host 3D CIC virtually if the in-person event must be cancelled. We will make a live vs. virtual decision at a later date.

New to 3D CIC? Sign up to receive announcements regarding CIC 2020 speakers & presentation topics.

ADD-ON: GD&T Master Class

October 12, 2020    8:30am – 4:30pm  ᛫  $750

You may be familiar with GD&T, but are you stuck in the ‘olden times’? Join us in the modern age to learn how to implement the latest methods of using the GD&T standards. We’ll demonstrate unambiguous product definition with GD&T through a variety of examples. Learn the importance of selecting Datum Features through examples. Simpler and more functional Datum Reference Frames are the key to better part control. Separate requirements for better Design, Manufacturing, and Inspection documentation.

Attendees will receive 3D PDFs of the course examples from Action Engineering. You do not need your laptop.

We are pleased to offer a discount of $100 per person to any company registering and sending 3 people or more to the GD&T Master Class. Please email Action Engineering for your discount code.

GD&T Master Class Topics

For those who joined us for last year’s GD&T Master Class at 3D CIC 2019, this course content will be familiar. This year we’ve expanded the course to a full day with more examples and in-depth, hands-on learning.

Morning: Not Your Grandparents’ GD&T (aka GD&T for the Modern World)

You may be familiar with GD&T, but are you stuck in the ‘olden times’? The tolerancing definitions in ASME Y14.5 haven’t changed much in recent years, but the way we apply geometric tolerancing has improved! The move away from plus/minus tolerancing into full position and profile tolerances on features is needed for a simpler and clearer design intent. Join us in the modern age to learn how to implement the latest methods of using the GD&T standards. We’ll demonstrate unambiguous product definition with GD&T through a variety of examples.

  • Quick review of GD&T principles
  • Why plus/minus tolerancing cannot be trusted
  • Full GD&T is necessary for better MBD
  • Hands-on exercise

Putting pencil to paper is the best way to learn proper GT (and we don’t mean D) for MBD. Work through examples together with the focus on functional design requirements.

Afternoon: A More Functional Datum Reference Frame

Learn the differences between Datums and Datum Features through examples. Simpler and more functional Datum Reference Frames are the key to better part control.

  • Datum Reference Frame created from actual Datum Features
  • Learn how to differentiate Design, Manufacturing, and Inspection requirements using 3D digital data documentation.

Work through more examples focused on understanding the Datum Reference Frame, constraining the 3D model in 3D space, and hands-on examples of design authoring, manufacturing work instructions, and automated inspection.
