New Visualization Option for Deviations of Geometric Tolerances
A new visualization option gives answers to questions such as: Where exactly are the highest deviations located? How are the deviations distributed on a surface? Which areas of the surface were actually evaluated? Where do the pattern deviations come from? This option is helpful when a pure OK/NOK decision is not sufficient and additional information is required for various reasons (e.g., to adjust manufacturing processes or to decide if a deviation is critical).
Depending on the toleranced element, certain methods for visualizing the actual deviations can be activated, e.g., a colored and scaled deviation vector for position tolerances, while simultaneously visualizing entire patterns of position tolerances. Combined with the possibilities of bookmarks, this allows for a visual, comprehensible, and easily understandable communication of a part’s geometrical deviations.
