This workshop introduces you to the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) system. GD&T is a valuable tool that effectively communicates the design intent to manufacturing and inspection. This workshop gives you a working knowledge of the correct interpretation and application of each symbol. It covers all general rules, the datum system, “bonus” tolerance, and the impact on manufacturing and inspection activities. The material is reinforced with many practice exercises. It is governed by the technical standard ASME Y14.5-2009.

Some of the things you’ll learn:
  • The benefits of GD&T
  • Identification of every geometric characteristic symbol
  • The correct syntax for feature control frames

  • Relationship of geometric tolerancing to the function of a part
