DimXpert for Parts

DimXpert for parts is a set of tools you use to apply dimensions and tolerances to parts according to the requirements of ASME Y14.41-2003 and ISO 16792:2006. You can then use the tolerances with TolAnalyst to perform stack analysis on assemblies, or with downstream CAM, other tolerance analyses, or metrology applications.

Set Overall drafting standard to ANSI (ASME) or ISO under Tools > Options > Document Properties > Drafting Standard.
