Constructed Features

When you perform a tolerance study using TolAnalyst, it considers dimensions and tolerances you apply to constructed features with DimXpert for parts, and their effect on other features in the tolerance chain.

Affected Constructed Features:

  • Intersect points
  • Intersect lines

Intersect Lines Example

Using TolAnalyst, you create a study to determine the tolerance stack for a measurement defined from the plane on the right to the right-hand hole, shown by the 11.18 reference dimension. The plane's location is controlled by two constructed features, intersect lines, shown by the red circles.

The TolAnalyst study considers dimensions and tolerances applied to the constructed features and holes.

The values 20, 50, and 60 change.
