To better define a product, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) is often used as a symbolic way to show tolerances on mechanical drawings. This one-day course covers the GD&T system per ASME Y14.5-2009, including why it reduces costs, how to interpret the symbols, and how to apply these tolerances correctly. Participants will learn the basic definitions and rules, the importance of datums, the meaning of each tolerance, and the impact on manufacturing and gaging. The class is a lecture format, with ample opportunity for questions, and participants are welcome to bring sample prints (with or without GD&T already applied) to discuss with the instructor during breaks or after the class.
A spiral binding book for GD&T will be provided.
