Solid Model Tolerancing 1-day ET2501

This course explains the fundamental definitions, concepts, and methods from the ASME Y14.41 Standard on Digital Product Definition Data Practices.

Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert and former Chairman of the Y14.41 Committee, Alex Krulikowski, the course focuses on understanding the benefits of a math-based product development process. Newly acquired learning is reinforced throughout the class with numerous practice problems.

Each attendee receives a robust collection of learning resources including:

  • Digital Product Definition Workbook
  • 90-day access to Engineering Drawing Requirements web course, based on ASME Y14.100-2004 and ASME Y14.24-1999, to practice and reinforce what was learned in the classroom
Thousands of students have learned GD&T through Alex Krulikowski's textbooks, self-study courses, computer-based training, and online learning. Students who attend courses like this walk away with more than knowledge, they gain on-the-job skills because the learning materials are performance-based.
