This paper considers error propagation in three dimensional geometric constructions using a geometric approach. First, we present definitions and constructions of tolerance zones for various fundamental elements in Euclidean space. Then, we study in detail the propagation of errors during several geometric computations, including the the distance between two skew lines, reflections, projections, and rotations, and we derive new tolerance zones from the old ones.
