Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing - Workbook w/ Engineering Drawings PD024030

Practice interpreting GD&T on industrial drawings can help you interpret GD&T on the job. SAE’s Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Workbook With Engineering Drawings, by Alex Krulikowski, provides hours of practice applying GD&T skills to engineering drawings.

The 204-page workbook is based on the ASME Y14.5M-1994 Standard. It includes 28 sections and contains more than 450 practice problems based on each concept from our 1994 Fundamentals of GD&T course and textbook. Each exercise is designed to provide experience with typical industrial engineering drawings as you learn to apply GD&T concepts through questions that apply specifically to those drawings. The drawings include adaptors, retainers, shafts, plates, pulleys, housings, and more.

Every goal and objective in the Fundamentals of GD&T textbook is covered in this incisive student workbook, making it the perfect supplement for classroom instruction. Exercise questions cover:

  • Interpreting engineering drawings
  • Understanding why GD&T is superior to coordinate tolerancing
  • Recognizing key terms
  • Identifying modifiers and symbols used in GD&T
  • Understanding Rules #1 and #2
  • Recognizing GD&T concepts
  • Interpreting flatness, straightness, circularity, and cylindricity
  • Specifying and interpreting planar datums, datum targets, and size datums (RFS and MMC)
  • Interpreting perpendicularity, angularity, parallelism, and position (RFS/MMC/LMC)
  • Drawing cartoon gages
  • Interpreting tolerance of position special applications
  • Calculating part distances and fastener formulas
  • Interpreting concentricity, symmetry, circular runout, total runout
  • Interpreting profile tolerancing, profile of a surface, and profile of a line

The Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Workbook With Engineering Drawings can be used:

  • As a companion to the 1994 Fundamentals of GD&T textbook
  • During workshops for practice at the end of each lesson
  • After class to practice newly learned concepts
  • Anytime you need to review and brush up on GD&T skills

This book is a valuable tool for: Designers; product, manufacturing, and quality engineers; CMM operators; checkers.

Skill level needed: Student should have a basic understanding of engineering drawings.
