Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is a symbolic language to define
The main goal of GD&T is to describe the geometric requirements for part and assembly geometry thus assuring that parts have the intended form, fit and function.
The proper use of GD&T requires dense 3D coordinate information, which makes the ATOS 3D Digitizer to the perfect measuring tool for this analysis.
The ATOS 3D Digitizer differs from traditional coordinate measurement machines and measuring arms. Instead of measuring single points, the complete part geometry is captured in a dense point cloud or polygon mesh describing the object's surface precisely, allowing full-field analysis and detecting errors which point based analysis would miss.
The GD&T module for the ATOS inspection software was developed in cooperation with a customer expert group under the lead of Bang&Olufsen.
The ATOS GD&T module convinces through the following features:
A free viewer is available to share 3D measurement and inspection data and to perform analysis operations. The Viewer can be downloaded and freely distributed to customers and colleagues.
