Whether you are new to GD&T or have a full engineering background, our site provides the most valuable resource for training and reference that you will find anywhere. GD&T is a system of symbols and features used in machining, manufacturing, quality and design that specify the shape, orientation, size, and critical features of the object of the drawing. GD&T is used to ensure that everyone is on the same page regarding how a feature or part is defined.
When a design engineer hands off a drawing to a machinist, they need a common technical language for communicating exactly what must be done. GD&T is a system to regulate and determine that communication.
We break down and simplify all the GD&T elements you need
AND show you how they are used in real world applications!

What Is GD&T?
GD&T is the overarching language used in design, manufacturing and quality inspection. GD&T combines a set of symbols, rules and principles to ensure that everyone is on the same page regarding how a feature or part is defined. When a design engineer hands off a drawing to a machinist, they need a common technical language for communicating exactly what must be done. GD&T is a system to regulate and determine that communication.
Why Is GD&T Important?
GD&T is very important to the engineering world. It is critical for anyone seeking employment in the mechanical engineering field to understand it. Whether you are an automotive engineer or a CNC machinist, knowing the basics of GD&T is paramount to having success in your industry.
Designers, engineers, machinists, inventors and CNC operators all need a grasp of GD&T knowledge to communicate clearly with each other.
One of the biggest problems is that people think GD&T is overly complicated and hard to learn. While there is a lot that goes into mastering GD&T, the overall concepts and basics of all the symbols are actually quite simple to learn.
We don’t just throw every concept at you – we make absolutely sure what we teach is what you will actually need in the real world.
