Adding Part Tolerances

Inventor allows you to analyze parts in a manner that ensures valid fit and function at dimensional extremes. When parts are assembled within an Inventor assembly file, you can check to ensure that the parts can be assembled without interference, by setting each part to evaluate at the upper or lower tolerance value. By specifying dimensional tolerances within parts, you are capturing valuable design data that will assist in manufacturing and assembly. In addition to creating the parts separately and then assembling them, you can use multi-body parts to create mated parts in one file, making it easy to design tolerances across multiple parts.
