  3. 3. Geometric Tolerancing<br />Purpose – <br /><ul><li>Geometric tolerance symbols give precise indication of GEOMETRIC requirement for a given feature / drawing
  4. 4. Symbols universally understood
  5. 5. Used when normal dimensioning and tolerancing are not sufficient for requirements of component / operation</li></li></ul><li>Geometric Tolerancing<br /><ul><li>Only use geometric tolerancing if it is absolutely necessary to the required design function
  6. 6. It adds to the cost of both manufacture and inspection</li></li></ul><li>Geometric Tolerancing<br />The symbols used represent a range of potential geometric features of a form of feature<br />Four types<br /><ul><li>Form

  10. 10. Geometric Tolerancing<br />Tolerance frame<br />This type of frame used when no datum is required<br />This type of frame used when a datum is specified – mandatory for some geometric features<br />
  11. 11. Geometric Tolerancing<br />DATUMS<br /><ul><li>A datum may be a plane surface or axis. For practical purposes the plane surface or axis is used for manufacture or inspection
  12. 12. If the toleranced feature is related to a datum, this is shown by a datum letter which is indicated in the tolerance frame by a capital letter</li></li></ul><li>Geometric Tolerancing<br />This resource was created Leicester College and released as an open educational resource through the Open Engineering Resources project of the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre.
