Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing provides thorough coverage of GD&T practices, as established by the ASME Y14.5–2009 standard. From understanding symbols on existing drawings to calculating the tolerances for proper size and location of features, topics are introduced in a methodical manner to establish an understanding of basic concepts before building to more advanced applications. Heavily illustrated, the use of the second color enhances learning by highlighting callouts and labels separately from the symbols and text of each drawing.
· The textbook discusses the interpretation of GD&T symbology and proper representation on drawings.
· Included in the textbook are Chapter Tests, Print Reading Exercises, Drafting Problems, and a comprehensive Final Exam.
· Instructor’s resources include answer keys, lesson plans, Final Exam and Drawing Problem solutions, visual masters, and course syllabi.
