Sigmetrix has released EZtol 2.1. This new version builds on the recent release of 2.0 supporting NX and CATIA models that provided a simpler interface and smaller download to add the ability to read PMI data, tolerance information defined with the CAD part files, for SOLIDWORKS, and offers these new highlights for all supported CAD systems:
- New option to bias assembly shift to center
- Allow selection of reference planes and axes as features in the stackup
- Allow circular edge to be used in two directions
- Allow minor misalignments between mating features
EZtol is a one-dimensional tolerance stackup analysis program designed to assist in understanding the impact on assembly-level requirements of the accumulation of part-level dimensional variation and part-to-part assembly variation. Interested users, including those who may have tested earlier versions of EZtol, may download a 7-day free trial.
EZtol v2.1 is an upgrade to the capabilities of Sigmetrix’s initial release of this 1D tolerance analysis tool.
“We’re focused on providing a tolerance analysis solution that’s as easy to use as possible,” says Raphael Nascimento, product manager for EZtol. “EZtol v2.1 builds on the power of EZtol v2.0, which we released earlier this year, by adding the ability to read PMI data for SOLIDWORKS and improving the user experience. For example, features with very small angle to the stackup direction can now be added to the stackup loop.”
To see a short demo of the newest version of EZtol in action, there is opportunity to attend a webinar scheduled on July 28, 2021. Register here.
