In this series, we will explore the most common errors that we see in implementing GD&T on engineering prints, and provide you with practical solutions to avoiding these pitfalls.

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, and the concept of “True Position,” originated due to a rejection of functional parts as a result of coordinate dimensioning. Let’s look at a simple assembly to illustrate why this is true, and how GD&T Position takes care of this problem.
The manufacturing industry is facing a workforce shortage, resulting in a loss of tribal knowledge and a widening skills gap. Discover how manufacturers are addressing this through employee training programs - and how GD&T Basics can help your team gain a comprehensive understanding of how to accurately interpret and analyze engineering prints, ensure compliance with industry drawing standards, and acquire the skills needed for effective inspection practices.
As our Training Design Engineer at GD&T Basics, Jason Richter is responsible for creating and maintaining lessons and visual content for our courses and YouTube page, as well as hosting our GD&T Public Training Seminars.
In this question line video, we explain when to use the diameter symbol in a feature control frame. The examples below illustrate the unique tolerance zones shapes and sizes for position, perpendicularity, straightness, runout, and cylindricity controls.
Can you use the MMC modifier and still ensure a minimum wall thickness? To answer this question, we are going to look at a drawing of a flywheel and compare how using the MMC modifier or the LMC modifier affects the minimum wall thickness.
"Why doesn’t Rule #1 apply to the straightness of a Derived Median Line?" In this article, we look at both surface straightness and straightness of a feature of size to understand why Derived Median Line Straightness overrules Rule #1 of GD&T.
