This live online training course is offered by a collaboration of Minnesota State colleges.
Gain a foundational interpretation of mechanical drawings using linear tolerancing and GD&T in the design, manufacture, and inspection of parts, which have geometric controls applied per national standards.
In this 8-week live online course, you will engage in learning how to read prints with Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing applications. Each of the geometric controls will be examined so you may determine the allowable variation in form and size between part features.
- Understanding of ANSI Y14.5 standards that affect geometric dimensioning and tolerancing applications.
- Proficiency in using geometric dimensioning and tolerancing symbols and controls
- Decipher how piece-parts must be inspected if the features have GD&T controls and symbols
- Interpret a sketch or print with pertinent feature control frame and its contents based on written geometric requirements
- Decipher the correct precision tool(s) to inspect geometric requirements on a piece-part
- Determine the Total tolerance of a feature using bonus and non-bonus tolerances
