The Fundamentals of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing textbook by Alex Krulikowski covers the basic rules, definitions, and concepts of GD&T. The book’s 12 chapters are split into 28 goals, each focusing on a major topic that must be mastered to be fluent in the fundamentals of geometric tolerancing.

Textbook Topics
Each of the textbook’s 28 goals are defined and supported by a set of performance objectives that describe specific, observable, measurable actions that the student must accomplish to demonstrate mastery of the topic. This learning method is a key to success for both the student and the instructor and is part of what makes this the most practical and easy-to-use GD&T textbook on the market.

Chapter goals include:

• Understand what an engineering drawing is
• Understand why geometric tolerancing is superior to coordinate tolerancing
• Understand eight key terms and how they affect the interpretation of a drawing
• Understand the modifiers and symbols used in geometric tolerancing
• Understand Rule #1 and Rule #2
• Understand the concepts of basic dimensions, virtual condition, inner and outer boundary, worst-case boundary, and bonus tolerance
• Interpret flatness
• Interpret straightness
• Interpret circularity
• Interpret cylindricity
• Understand the datum system (planar datums)
• Interpret datum targets
• Interpret feature of size datum specifications (RFS)
• Interpret feature of size datum specifications(MMC)
• Interpret the perpendicularity control
• Understand the fundamental concepts of tolerance of position: the definition and conventions, the advantages, and the basic theories
• Interpret RFS and MMC tolerance of position applications
• Draw cartoon gages for tolerance of position (MMC) applications
• Interpret tolerance of position special applications
• Calculate distances on a part dimensioned with tolerance of position
• Calculate tolerance of position tolerance values using the fixed and floating fastener formulas
• Interpret the concentricity control
• Interpret the symmetry control
• Interpret the circular runout control
• Interpret the total runout control
• Understand profile tolerancing
• Interpret the profile of a surface control
• Interpret profile of a line control

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

Skill level needed: A basic understanding of engineering drawings is required.

Format: The Fundamentals of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing is based on the ASME Y14.5M-1994 Standard. The goals and performance objectives of each chapter are clearly described to keep you focused on the material. At the end of each chapter, you will find a number of exercises to reinforce the material once you have learned it.

The Fundamentals of GD&T textbook (ASME Y14.5M-1994) is only available to the general public. It is not sold to educational institutions.
