Course Descriptions

GEOMETRIC DIMENSIONING AND TOLERANCING BASICS

This class is intended for people who have never had a “formal” GD&T course and need to understand and interpret the call-outs on part prints on a daily basis.

Course content will include numerous examples and illustrations, company part analysis, and demonstration/illustration of appropriate gaging/inspection methods where possible.  All students will be given copies of the presentation slides and a GD&T “pocket-guide”.

It is important that the students have a good print reading and manufacturing processes background, as well as understand the meaning and interpretation of tolerances on a part print.  These are considered pre-requisite subjects that will not be covered in-depth in the content presented in this class.  The focus will be on understanding and interpreting geometric tolerancing symbols as specified on a print. 

Information includes:

  • Introduction to Tolerancing (Rectangular/Size Tolerancing and GD&T)                    
  • Form Tolerances
    • Straightness, Flatness, Circularity and Cylindricity
    • Functional Gaging and inspection
  • Orientation Tolerances 
    • Datums, Perpendicularity, Angularity, Parallelism
    • Functional Gaging and Inspection
  • Fundamentals of Positional Tolerances 
    • Position, Material Condition Modifiers, Applications
    • Inspection (Paper gaging), Advantages of Position
    • Tolerances
  • Runout and Profile Tolerances 
  • Industry Specific Parts and Assembly Analysis
    • Design, Manufacturing and Inspection

GEOMETRIC DIMENSIONING AND TOLERANCING: ADVANCED CONCEPTS

This class is intended for people who have a solid and thorough understanding of manufacturing and assembly processes, print-reading, dimensional analysis and the basic concepts and application of GD&T. Designers and Engineers responsible for ensuring parts mate and function properly would find the most benefit from this course.

Course content will include numerous examples and illustrations, company part analysis, and demonstration/illustration of appropriate gaging/inspection methods where possible.  All students will be given copies of the presentation slides and a GD&T “pocket-guide”.

It is important that the participants have a good print reading and manufacturing processes background, as well as understand the meaning and interpretation of GD&T tolerances on a part print.  These are considered pre-requisite subjects that will not be covered in-depth in the content presented in this class. 

The focus will be on expanded application and calculation of the appropriate values to be put on a drawing based on fit and function.

Information includes:

  • Review of the GD&T Families of Tolerances & Rules
    • Form, Orientation, Position, Runout & Profile 
  • Datum Review and Expansion
    • Proper Drawing Designation, Surface and Feature of Size Applications
    • Datum Simulations and Consequences, Targets
  • Expanded Position Applications
    • Datums at MMC, Composite Position, Multi Single-Segment Position
  • Expanded Profile Tolerance
    • Profile – Coplanar of a Surface, Applied to Complex Feature, Composite Control
  • Mating Part Design
  • Industry Specific Parts and Assembly Analysis
