January 2015 GD&T Seminar
The SAE Cumberland Valley section is excited to announce its first event for 2015! A Geometric Dimensiong & Tolerancing Event will be held in January 2015, in the greater Hagerstown area. Anyone interested in attending this event should the SAE Cumberland Valley Section @, to ensure there is space for all who want to attend. Our first session will be held to a maximum of 20 people. Gruesome Dreaded & Tedious… Ghastly Distressful & Tiresome…. Just a few of the nicer things you will hear when Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing is discussed.As we will see in this presentation, “interpretation” is not what is required, but rather “translation” or, as some prefer, “decoding”. Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing is a language, shorthand, providing a powerful design tool that allows the designer to clearly communicate the design requirements to the shop floor for manufacture and inspection. Of course, languages often have dialects and this is where many people have problems with GD&T. The two major dialects are ANSI Y14.5M and ISO 1101, with generational differences depending upon the revision. This presentation will be tailored, as much as possible, to address those versions of GD&T being utilized by the attendees and highlight the differences between those versions and the latest releases.
