Quick Tip – Positive Stacked Tolerances

I’ve been asked if it’s possible to create a positive / positive deviation tolerance dimension in Fusion 360. The answer is yes, and it’s easy to do.

Simply make the “Lower Tolerance” value negative. See the GIF below:

So there you have it, you can now easily create positive values on deviation or stacked tolerances!

You may be wondering why it works like this… well, the reason for it, is that the dimension tool is expecting to convert a positive number to a negative one. Using a negative number, the tool is now converting a negative to a negative and the result is a positive number.
