Join Kipp Bradford for an in-depth discussion in this video Basic GD&T rules, part of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
- [Instructor] The American Society of Mechanical Engineers'…Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Standard…defines a set of 16 fundamental rules…for properly dimensioning and tolerancing a part…based on the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard.…The complete set of rules can be found…in section 1.4 of the standard guide.…Although all 16 of these rules are important, this video…will highlight the more commonly encountered rules.…All dimensions must have a tolerance.…There are exceptions to this rule.…
For example, dimensions that are identified…as reference dimensions are considered for information use…only, and therefore, tolerances don't apply.…Maximum and minimum dimensions, by definition,…are dimensional limits, so further…tolerance limits don't make sense.…The ASME standard also allows dimensions…to be called out as stock, meaning the tolerance will be…dependent on commercially available material specifications.…Dimensioning and tolerancing shall be complete,…so that there is a full understanding…of the geometry of each and every feature.…
