Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing
The symbolic language GD&T is used to a great extend today. The explicit tolerancing of engineering drawings means that production, outsourcing and quality control is communicated in an established standard language, which diminishes errors and misunderstandings.
In Zebicon we see that more companies replace the traditional dimensioning with GD&T.
The inspection software GOM Inspect can conduct GD&T. Unlike other softwares for geometric inspection, GOM Inspect illustrates datum references, elements, and tolerance zones on the screen as they are constructed and verified.
