"Most GD&T training only helps engineers learn the interpretation of (the GD&T) language. Enventive has become a tool at our company that has helped engineers become fluent in applying GD&T to their designs. " - Eric Pattok, Nexteer Automotive

Performance Modeling

The powerful, simultaneous equation solving capabilities in Enventive® software combine geometric modeling with mathematical modeling, computing any performance parameters represented with linear and non-linear algebraic equations. Dimensions can be used directly in equations, and equations can be used to drive dimensions. Users can run tolerance analysis on any parameter computed by equations.

  • Values driven by equations are automatically updated when the equation changes. You can easily change which value in an equation drives another value by changing its lock status in the parameter table.
  • As you modify equations and geometric values change, the sketch automatically updates to reflect the changes.
  • When you add an equation, all new variables are also added to the parameter table. Any variable in the parameter table can be used in equations.
