GD&T Fundmentals

Our most popular course is GD&T Fundamentals. It can be either two or three days. Participants in this comprehensive seminar will learn to:

  • Explain the benefits of GD&T
  • Evaluate tolerances for size, form, orientation, and location
  • Interpret feature control frames for each GD&T symbol
  • Determine correct datum usage and how it affects manufacturing and inspection
  • Calculate "bonus" tolerance for MMC and LMC
  • Apply geometric tolerances to drawings
  • Determine the virtual condition to ensure assembly
  • Explain "composite" tolerancing for position and profile

All training is in accordance with the current ASME Y14.5-2009 standard (unless training to a different standard is requested). Your group will be able to practice these concepts with many class exercises and evaluation of sample drawings. Participants are also encouraged to bring drawings to the class for discussion!

This course can be made available for your entire group, and can be customized based on your needs and time constraints.

Occasionally we offer this class as a "public" seminar, which is ideal for individuals or companies that do not have enough participants to host an on-site class. If this might interest you, contact us to ask about upcoming dates and locations.
