What is PMI Data, and Why is It Important in Part Design?

We strongly encourage embedding Product Manufacturing Information, or PMI, inside CAD models if a digital inspection is needed. PMI is dimension and tolerance information that is built directly into CAD models while designing the model in the CAD program, and PMI can be embedded in all major CAD software packages. This data is used to automatically program our 3D scanner software and pricing discounts are offered for those who include PMI in their CAD models.
