CETOL 6s v8.3 software for SolidWorks can initiate directly from the annotations that already exist within a CAD model generated by the SolidWorks design software, reducing the time required to model the dimension scheme. This new feature also allows f2-way associativity between the SolidWorks CAD annotation and the CETOL model. Changes made to the CAD annotations are propagated to CETOL and changes made within CETOL in the process of a tolerance analysis are written back to SolidWorks, helping to ensure that tolerance information in the CAD model reflects the correct information.
CETOL 6 Sigma and SOLIDWORKS lets you see the impact that tolerance changes will have on the overall assembly. The technology of these two products enables product development teams to optimize their design and manufacturing goals so they can deliver higher quality and more precisely engineered products.
