Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Fundamentals - 2009

Format Classroom

Learn how to apply GD&T to a variety of situations including your own parts.

Discover the major pitfalls of traditional coordinate tolerancing — and how they may be overcome by using Geometric Tolerancing. Then, starting with your basic blueprint knowledge, you’ll learn the symbols, terminology, and rules of Geometric Tolerancing as prescribed in the current standard (ASME Y14.5-2009). Learn the relationship between tolerances and how to most economically apply the concepts through the GD&T Hierarchy.
