## How do you use geometric tolerance in Solidworks?

To set geometric tolerance properties, do one of the following:

- For parts, click Geometric Tolerance (DimXpert toolbar) or Tools > DimXpert > Geometric Tolerance.
- For drawings, click Geometric Tolerance. (Annotation toolbar) or Insert > Annotations > Geometric Tolerance.

## How do you show tolerance in Solidworks?

When you use a general tolerance, you can display a symmetrical tolerance within the dimension text. The displayed tolerance is based on the tolerance class specified in parts and assemblies, in Tools > Options > Document Properties > DimXpert, under General tolerance.

**How do you attach a geometric tolerance to datum in Solidworks?**

To attach the datum feature symbol to a dimension or geometric tolerance symbol, do either of the following:

- Before you create the datum feature symbol, preselect the dimension or geometric tolerance symbol.
- After you create the datum feature symbol, drag it onto the dimension or geometric tolerance symbol.

### What is bilateral tolerance example?

The amount that the size of a machine part is allowed to vary above or below a basic dimension; for example, 3.650 ± 0.003 centimeters indicates a tolerance of ± 0.003 centimeter.

### Why are geometric tolerances used?

Geometrical tolerances are used to convey in a brief and precise manner complete geometrical requirements on engineering drawings. They should always be considered for surfaces which come into contact with other parts, especially when close tolerances are applied to the features concerned.

**How do you add datum to geometric tolerance?**

## What is an example of unilateral tolerance?

Unilateral Tolerance – A unilateral tolerance is a tolerance in which variation is permitted only in one direction from the specified dimension, example, 1.400 +. 000/ -. 006.”

## What is bilateral tolerance co 4?

Explanation: Bilateral tolerances are preferred in mass production techniques where setting of a machine is done for the basic size. If unilateral tolerances are specified in place of bilateral, then basic size should be changed to make it bilateral. Basic size is in half way between lower and upper limits.

**How do I create a geometric tolerance symbol with dimxpert?**

Specify the following properties when you create a geometric tolerance symbol. For parts, click Geometric Tolerance (DimXpert toolbar) or Tools > DimXpert > Geometric Tolerance. For drawings, click Geometric Tolerance (Annotation toolbar) or Insert > Annotations > Geometric Tolerance.

### How to add tolerance in AutoCAD?

For drawings, click Geometric Tolerance (Annotation toolbar) or Insert > Annotations > Geometric Tolerance. Select a symbol. Select a material condition. The pointer must be in a Tolerance or Primary, Secondary, or Tertiary box to insert a material condition.

### How do I add material conditions to a tolerance?

The pointer must be in a Tolerance or Primary, Secondary, or Tertiary box to insert a material condition. Only the material conditions that are appropriate for the selected symbol are available. If you click Projected Tolerance , enter a projected tolerance zone (PTZ) in Height . Type tolerance values for Tolerance 1 and Tolerance 2 .

**How do I apply flatness and straightness tolerances on a unit basis?**

You can apply flatness and straightness tolerances on a unit basis. You apply a unit basis tolerance by following the tolerance value with a forward slash (/) and entering the per-unit area or per-unit length criteria. Enter datum names and material condition symbols for the Primary, Secondary, and Tertiary datums.
