Inventor Tolerance Analysis Overview

Manufacturing tolerances have a significant impact on cost and quality. Tradeoffs can be made to ensure proper fit; however, calculating stack-ups manually introduces the potential for errors. Autodesk® Inventor® Tolerance Analysis® is designed to help Inventor users make informed decisions while specifying manufacturing tolerances. Inventor® Tolerance Analysis® is a CAD-embedded, 1D solution that helps understand the mechanical fit and performance of your design based on dimensional tolerances. Stack-ups automatically capture the relationships defined in the assembly model and customers using Model-Based Definition capabilities can edit tolerance values directly inside Tolerance Analysis®, further streamlining the process between design and manufacturing.

Inventor Tolerance Analysis Features

  • Tolerance stackup analysis
    Reduce tolerance issues during manufacturing by running an analysis of the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) in a 3D model.
  • Inventor integration
    Perform tolerance stackup analyses in Inventor for native design files, as well as models created from other CAD systems.
  • Advanced statistical results
    Calculate the worst case, RSS, and statistical results of the analysis. Report metrics for statistical results as Cpk, Sigma, DPMO, or Yield.
  • Report generation
    Generate reports to communicate analysis results and cost-control efforts to manufacturing and quality engineers.

Please ensure that you are installing on a supported operating system. Autodesk Inventor 2019 and Autodesk Inventor Professional 2019 support only 64-bit operating systems and cannot be installed on 32-bit systems.
