Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing Web Seminar Series

GD&T (geometric dimensioning and tolerancing) is a symbolic language used on drawings to communicate tolerancing requirements throughout the development and manufacturing process. Like any language, however, it is only useful if everyone involved in the process is fluent in the symbols and rules of GD&T.

SAE's web seminars cover all facets of GD&T, allowing you to master the skills necessary to properly interpret and apply tolerances for both parts and assemblies.

Fundamentals of Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing (GD&T) Web Seminar
Also available on demand
This course introduces participants to the GD&T system, providing a working knowledge of the correct interpretation and application of each symbol, general rules, the datum system, and 'bonus' tolerance and highlighting some of the changes in the updated Y14.5 standard.

Advanced GD&T Competencies: Datum Usage Web Seminar
Also available on demand
This advanced web seminar will detail the proper use of datums, showing their full potential to make your drawings as effective as possible. Participants will learn to select, identify, simulate, and describe datums and datum features for special uses such as irregular shapes, flexible parts, and datum references that use the maximum material modifier. Also covered are several new modifiers and options given in the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard.

Advanced GD&T Competencies: Profile of a Surface web seminar
Also available on demand
This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of the profile tolerances in GD&T and uncover the nuances of these two symbols. Since profile of a surface is arguably the most powerful GD&T symbol, its full potential will be explored. The examples given in this session will also illustrate several of the new options for profile that were introduced in the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard.

Advanced GD&T Competencies: Composite Positioning Web Seminar
Also available on demand
This advanced web seminar will clarify the proper use of "double-decker" position controls in GD&T. Participants will learn the difference in showing one vs. two position symbols and the importance of the datum references in understanding each meaning, per the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard.
