EZtol 2.1 by Sigmetrix Now Supports Ability to Read PMI for SOLIDWORKS CAD Models

Sigmetrix, experts in mechanical variation management, announced their release of EZtol 2.1. This new version builds on the recent release of 2.0 supporting NX and CATIA models that provided a much simpler interface and smaller download to add the ability to read PMI data, tolerance information defined with the CAD part files, for SOLIDWORKS, and offers these new highlights for all supported CAD systems:

*       New option to bias assembly shift to center
*       Allow selection of reference planes and axes as features in the stackup
*       Allow circular edge to be used in two directions
*       Allow minor misalignments between mating features

EZtol is a 1-Dimensional tolerance stackup analysis program designed to assist in understanding the impact on assembly-level requirements of the accumulation of part-level dimensional variation and part-to-part assembly variation. Interested users, including those who may have tested earlier versions of EZtol, may download a 7-day free trial from

EZtol v2.1 is a significant upgrade to the capabilities of Sigmetrix’s initial release of this 1D tolerance analysis tool. “We’re focused on providing a tolerance analysis solution that’s as easy to use as possible,” said Raphael Nascimento, Product Manager for EZtol. “EZtol v2.1 builds on the power of EZtol v2.0, which we released earlier this year, by adding the ability to read PMI data for SOLIDWORKS and improving the user experience. For example, features with very small angle to the stackup direction can now be added to the stackup loop. This provides greater flexibility for creating 1-D stackups in complex assemblies where assembly constraints might cause parts to have very minor misalignments, even though they are intended to be perfectly aligned. This is just one example of how we’ve focused on streamlining the process of creating a tolerance stackup with EZtol.”
