Join Kipp Bradford for an in-depth discussion in this video Basic GD&T symbols: Location, part of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
- [Instructor] The location controls provided…by Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing standards…improve upon standard plus/minus location tolerancing…by defining circular tolerance zones…and taking into account material conditions…to ensure that the location of features…like holes, slots, bosses, tabs, posts and pins…fall within the widest acceptable range.…The position control defines how much the actual location…of a feature on a part can deviate…from the desired location of that feature.…
It is one of the more commonly used…geometric dimensioning and tolerancing controls.…It allows the designer to specify a circular tolerance zone…that a center point axis, or center plane,…must lie within.…The position control can also be used…to define the boundary of a given feature…under maximum material conditions…or least material conditions.…The concentricity control defines…how much the center axis of a cylindrical feature…can deviate from a perfect center axis.…It is strictly defined in the standard…as the condition where the median points…
