Length: 43 days
Designed for those who use the ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing standard, this course covers most of the geometric dimensioning controls used on mechanical engineering drawings. Theoretical and practical concepts of each of the geometric controls are explained relative to design, tooling, production, and inspection. Parts of a directional-change gear box are used as platforms for the geometric controls, including shafts, gears, bearings, keys, lip seals, castings, and threaded fasteners.
This is an online, instructor-supported course, allowing you to work at your own pace and convenience. Composed of twelve modules with quizzes, most modules have drawing assignments and supplementary information.
Possession of the ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning and Tolerancing Standard is required.
