6. PROSPECTS FOR THE USE OF THE TOLERANCES BY VIRTUAL GAUGES REPRESENTATION OF At present, in the majority of the CAD software packages, the tolerance frames are directly created by the user. The compliance with the standardized rules of syntax is in party ensured by the software which limits the possibilities of writing. The semantic coherence of the tolerances, with respect to the parts, is not verified and depends entirely on the expertise of the user. To our knowledge, at the moment, two software packages are able to generate the tolerance frames, in a quasi-automatic way, starting from the selection, by the user, of the toleranced features and the datum features on the 3D model of the part. Nevertheless the development and the updating of those software packages are delicate because the writing rules of the standardized tolerances are badly formalized and change regularly. The "virtual tolerancing gauges" could be generated in the same manner: by selecting the toleranced features and the datum features on the 3D model of the part, the user will define the inspecting gauge corresponding to each functional geometrical requirement of the product. These gauges will be displayed in 3D...
