Join Kipp Bradford for an in-depth discussion in this video Intro to GD&T for machine shops, part of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
- [Instructor] Geometric dimensioning…and tolerancing practices build upon…and improve existing tolerancing methods.…While some symbols may be new and unfamiliar at first,…learning how to read geometric dimensioning…and tolerancing notation will make it easier…to understand how much dimensional error can be tolerated…before a part will fail inspection.…With that knowledge, a machine operator…can minimize cost and maximize efficiency.…Some learning curve is involved in order to begin using…geometric dimensioning and tolerancing notation.…
The time invested to learn this information…has valuable benefits in quality and efficiency for a shop.…Not to mention the fact that engineers…will increasingly require their suppliers…to use geometric dimensioning and tolerancing notations.…
