Welcome to Locus CAE
Locus CAE is a unique tool that estimates machining outcomes. Tolerance consumption estimates are provided based upon desired part feature and tolerance requirements.
How it works
A simple two step process first guides feature attribute selection: position, size, form, etc., then input of part geometry details: length, orientation, tolerance, etc., and the class of machine tool being analyzed. Locus CAE then provides tolerance consumption estimates for each machine tool selected. Results are provided as a “percent of tolerance consumed”.
