LABOR DAY SPECIAL -- Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) -- 25% OFF TRAINING


Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) per ASME Y14.5 Training, hosted by Ally PLM Solutions Inc.

GD&T is an international language applied to engineering drawings. It provides uniformity in drawing specs and interpretation. Geometric tolerancing uses the entire manufacturing and inspection process to reduce controversy, guesswork, and assumptions. Proper GD&T use will promote better product design, improve communication, and increase product tolerances.

This course will introduce students to the foundational concepts of Dimensioning and Tolerancing per ASME Y14.5 standard. This course will primarily reference the 2009 revision of ASME Y14.5 but will make note, as applicable, of changes from the 1994 revision. It will briefly review traditional coordinate dimensioning practices and then introduce students to the key concepts of GD&T per ASME Y14.5 that address the known limitations and shortcomings of coordinate dimensioning.
This course will prepare students to begin thinking of design approach in regard to defining and documenting machine component’s function in addition to its size and shape. Course is instructor led with many class participation examples and hands on student exercises. Course can be attended in person or on-line by joining in on live class session via GoToMeeting. After final review and student assessments; students will be exposed to 2D and 3D CAD tools and shown how to apply the lessons learned from this course to CAD drawings.

Students will have been introduced to GD&T per ASME Y14.5 2009 with awareness given to the key changes from 1994. Students will understand the key benefits of GD&T over coordinate dimensioning and be better prepared to design and document component’s function in addition to size and shape. Students will be able to identify all symbols of Form, Profile, Orientation, Location and Runout, and understand their basic functions and application. Students will also better understand Datums, Feature Control Frames, Modifiers and the implication Modifiers have on tolerance known as bonus Tolerancing.

Potential students should have or completed the following prior to the class:

  •  Mechanical Design Experience
  •  Understanding of Geometry and Relationships between parts in design
  •  Basic understanding of drawing practices: Dimensioning and Tolerancing
