Join Kipp Bradford for an in-depth discussion in this video GD&T in SOLIDWORKS 3D model, part of Introduction to Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
- [Instructor] In SOLIDWORKS 3D part files,…geometric dimensioning and tolerancing tools…can be found in the DimXpert tab of the primary menu bar.…GD&T call outs can be attached to part features…without having to first create a 2D drawing.…This is important because many machine shops…now accept native 3D part files…instead of or in addition to 2D drawings.…When GD&T controls can be included at the 3D part level,…the geometric dimensioning…and tolerancing control information is perfectly preserved…as the native files are sent to a machine shop.…
This eliminates the extra steps of transferring…the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing data…to a two-dimensional drawing,…sending both the drawing…and the three-dimensional part to a machine shop,…then having the machine shop translate the two-dimensional…geometric dimensioning and tolerancing data…back onto the three-dimensional part.…All of the geometric constraints and design intent…are preserved in a native three-dimensional file…when the geometric dimensioning…
