Dimensional Engineering Training Webinar Series – Part 2

Comparison of 1D, 2D & 3D Tolerance Analysis | November 12, 2020
Excel can be used for a lot of equation-based applications. Many companies rely on it for their tolerance analysis; doing 1D stacks and stack-up analysis. For basic cases, this works great and can be a fast and effective way to get answers quickly, but as soon as products, models, and requirements become more complex, Excel falls flat.
This means that your Excel answers might be misleading you, and can cause some embarrassing, and expensive, problems later on. This webinar will demonstrate a 1D, 2D and 3D stack analysis on a product, and explain why 1D and 2D stacks are missing the mark for tolerance analysis.
Key Takeaway
  • What variation missed in Excel 1D stacks?
  • What does 3D analysis offer?
  • What is the empirical evidence for 3D Stacks?
