This advanced, online, instructor-supported course thoroughly covers some of the more used geometric dimensioning controls used on mechanical engineering drawings. The basic applications of position are explained in greater detail including fixed and floating fastener, zero tolerance, size feature datums, and composite vs. two single segments. How to control the size and location non-size features are also explained. Coaxial relationships and control of rectangular features is also covered.

Special Requirements
Possession of the ASME Y14.5 - 2009 Dimensioning and Tolerancing standard is required.

  • You Will Learn To
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of GD&T
  • Explain basic applications of position and size concepts
  • Identify practical tools that you can apply on the job

Who Should Attend
Professionals who use the ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing standard, who work in design, drafting, quality, procurement, tooling, production, and manufacturing

To take this course you should have a personal computer, Web browser, Internet connection, and software to display PDF files (such as Adobe Reader).
