Dimensioning can be divided into three categories:

•general dimensioning,•geometric dimensioning, and•surface texture.

The following provides information necessary to begin to understand geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T)

Tolerancing (GD&T)

Geometric Dimensioning &

Tolerancing (GD&T)

GD&T is a means of dimensioning & tolerancing a drawing which considers the function of the part and how this part functions with related parts.

– This allows a drawing to contain a more defined feature more accurately, without increasing tolerances.

Page 7: Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T). Dimensioning can be divided into three categories: general dimensioning, geometric dimensioning, and surface

GD&T cont’dGD&T cont’d

GD&T has increased in practice in last 15 years because of ISO 9000.– ISO 9000 requires not only that something

be required, but how it is to be controlled. For example, how round does a round feature have to be?

GD&T is a system that uses standard symbols to indicate tolerances that are based on the feature’s geometry.

– Sometimes called feature based dimensioning & tolerancing or true position dimensioning & tolerancing

GD&T practices are specified in ANSI Y14.5M-1994.

For ExampleFor Example

Given Table Height

However, all surfaces have a degree of waviness, or smoothness. For example, the surface of a 2 x 4 is much wavier (rough) than the surface of a piece of glass.– As the table height is dimensioned, the

following table would pass inspection.

If top must be flatter, you could tighten the tolerance to ± 1/32. – However, now the height is restricted to

26.97 to 27.03 meaning good tables would be rejected.

Assume all 4 legs will be cut to length at the same time.

WHY IS GD&T IMPORTANTWHY IS GD&T IMPORTANT

Saves money– For example, if large number

of parts are being made – GD&T can reduce or eliminate inspection of some features.

– Provides “bonus” tolerance Ensures design, dimension, and

tolerance requirements as they relate to the actual function

Ensures interchangeability of mating parts at the assembly

Provides uniformity It is a universal understanding of

the symbols instead of words

Page 11: Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T). Dimensioning can be divided into three categories: general dimensioning, geometric dimensioning, and surface

WHEN TO USE GD&TWHEN TO USE GD&T

When part features are critical to a function or interchangeability

When functional gaging is desirable

When datum references are desirable to ensure consistency between design

When standard interpretation or tolerance is not already implied

When it allows a better choice of machining processes to be made for production of a part

TERMINOLOGY REVIEW TERMINOLOGY REVIEW Maximum Material Condition

(MMC): The condition where a size feature contains the maximum amount of material within the stated limits of size. I.e., largest shaft and smallest hole.

Least Material Condition (LMC): The condition where a size feature contains the least amount of material within the stated limits of size. I.e., smallest shaft and largest hole.

Tolerance: Difference between MMC and LMC limits of a single dimension.

Allowance: Difference between the MMC of two mating parts. (Minimum clearance and maximum interference)

Basic Dimension: Nominal dimension from which tolerances are derived.

» A standardization of size is desired in the manufacturing of a part.

» Consideration of how parts are orientated to each other is very important.

– For example, legos are made in a standard size in order to lock into place. A primary datum is chosen to reference the location of the mating features.

Position TolerancePosition Tolerance A position tolerance is the total

permissible variation in the location of a feature about its exact true position.

For cylindrical features, the position tolerance zone is typically a cylinder within which the axis of the feature must lie.

For other features, the center plane of the feature must fit in the space between two parallel planes.

The exact position of the feature is located with basic dimensions.

The position tolerance is typically associated with the size tolerance of the feature.

Datums are required.

This means that the tolerance is .010 if the hole size is the MMC size, or .497. If the hole is bigger, we get a bonus tolerance equal to the difference between the MMC size and the actual size.
