Advanced Concepts of GD&T 1994 3-day

This 3-day advanced-level course teaches the advanced concepts of GD&T as prescribed in the ASME Y14.5M-1994 Standard. It can be conducted with flexible scheduling, including 5 mornings or 5 afternoons.   

The course includes all the topics from the Advanced Concepts of GD&T 2-day foundational-level class:
  • Product design and functional dimensioning,
  • Feature and feature of size
  • Dimensioning standards on drawings
  • Rigid and flexible (non-rigid) parts
  • Requirements for parts measured in the restrained state
  • Datum usage on restrained (non-rigid) parts
  • Calculating advanced applications of form controls
  • Uses, advantages, misconceptions, and common errors of the datum system
  • Nine common datum feature types
  • Advanced datum target concepts
  • Modifier usage in tolerance of position applications
  • The effects of simultaneous and separate requirements with tolerance of position
  • Composite and multiple single-segment position and profile tolerancing
  • Profile applications
This in-depth, advance-level course also covers:>
  • The fundamentals of drawing interpretation and how to handle substandard drawings
  • How to specify/interpret specialized datum feature applications
  • Interpreting tolerance of position applications with a conical tolerance zone
  • More than 50 additional exercises
Each attendee receives:
  • An Advanced Concepts of GD&T (ASME Y14.5M-1994) textbook 
  • A GD&T Ultimate Pocket Guide (1994)
  • A Fundamentals of GD&T Exercise Workbook

Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with more than 250 practice problems.
