STEP ONE: Foundation Training

Before GD&T can be correctly applied to the national standards by individual Engineers, it is essential that the philosophy is clearly understood, the core training is specially designed to:

  • Ensure clarity of purpose in the group
  • Expose Engineers to the philosophy of GD&T
  • Introduce and demonstrate the use of GD&T in accordance to the adopted standards
  • Convey an understanding for the meaning of the Geometric symbols
  • Illustrate the application of GD&T to specific parts

The Foundation Training session is compiled for those who need an understanding of GD&T and the fundamentals of applying it. It is specific to a single standard but includes the difference between the two common standards, ISO (BS8888) and ASME Y14.5 2009.

This 3 day training course will cover the fundamentals of GD&T as well as a comprehensive study of the 14 Geometric symbols, the Datum System and rules to apply GD&T.

Within the session there are practical demonstrations and Tolerance calculation exercises. Workbooks are provided.

Who should attend?
Anyone who has to create or understand an engineering drawing or 3D GD&T Annotated CAD model.

Aims of the course:

  • To expose you to the philosophy of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
  • To give you an update to this technique of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing.
  • To convey an understanding for the use and the meaning of the Geometric symbols.
  • To help you apply Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing and functional tolerances to your own part esensure interchangeability.
  • To give you an understanding of where Gauge sizes come from.
