The purpose of this Two-Day Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals course is to familiarize participants with the rules and symbols of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T). This powerful language improves communication on mechanical drawings, and has many advantages over traditional plus/minus tolerancing. Participants will learn to identify, interpret, and apply the 14 geometric characteristic symbols, as well as how they relate to datums. The proper interpretation of GD&T callouts will be covered, and how they impact manufacturing. The material is based on the ASME Y14.5-2018 Standard.

Who should attend: This course is intended for CAD designers, product engineers, manufacturing engineers, manufacturing personnel, and quality, especially those who have limited or no experience with GD&T.

Benefits: After attending this course, participants will be able to:

    • Identify and explain each of the 14 GD&T symbols
    • Describe how Rule #1 controls the form of a feature
    • Interpret the feature control frame
    • Apply and interpret the MMC and LMC modifiers
    • Identify datums and explain their role in GD&T
    • Identify new modifiers from the 2009 standard
    • Determine proper manufacturing and gauging techniques based on the GD&T

Cost:  $700/person or $650/person if 3 or more. Includes continental breakfast, lunch, beverages & snacks, plus materials.
