Intro. to Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing • MFG*160 • 3 credits ($)
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is a language used on mechanical engineering drawings composed of symbols used to communicate accurately and efficiently geometry requirements for associated features on components and assemblies. GD&T is, and has been, successfully used for many years in the automotive, aerospace, electronics and the commercial design and manufacturing industries. In today’s modern and technically advanced design, engineering and manufacturing world, effective and accurate communication is required to ensure successful end products. Topics include the following: introduction to symbols and terms, limits to size, data reference frame, form tolerance, geometric system functionality, orientation tolerances, position tolerances, profile tolerances, coaxial tolerances, tolerance analysis, and applications. Prerequisite: C- or better in Blueprint Reading I (MFG*124).
