The Dimensional Chain add-in calculates dimension chains for drawings and fragments. Elements of
a dimension chain are represented by fixed dimensions or line segments. The add-in performs
calculations for horizontal, vertical, and angled dimensions; calculations can include maximum-
minimum or probability-theoretical methods.

Discrepancies are calculated for nominal dimensions in the range of 0 - 10 000mm. For dimension
chains in which at least one nominal size does not fit into the range, only calculations of nominal
values are performed.

The following tolerances are calculated: A B C CD D E EF F FG G H JS K M
N P R S T U V X Y Z ZA ZB and ZC with an accuracy 0 to 18 decimal places.
Both shafts and holes are supported.
The Dimensional Chains Calculation add-in calculates dimension chains, and finds the right value of
closing segments using a variety of calculation methods.
