Special Note: Parallelism actually has two different functions in GD&T depending which reference feature is called out. The normal form or Surface Parallelism is a tolerance that controls parallelism between two surfaces or features. The surface form is controlled similar to flatness with two parallel planes acting as its tolerance zone. Axis Parallelism is a tolerance…

GDT Symbol cylindricity
by GDT Guy on December 18, 2014.

GD&T Symbol: Relative to Datum: No MMC or LMC applicable: No Drawing Callout: Description: The Cylindricity symbol is used to describe how close an object conforms to a true cylinder. Cylindricity is a 3-Dimensional tolerance that controls the overall form of a cylindrical feature to ensure that it is round enough and straight enough along…

GD&T perpendicularity symbol
by GDT Guy on December 14, 2014.

Special Note: Perpendicularity in GD&T can mean two very different things depending which reference feature is called out. The normal form or Surface Perpendicularity is a tolerance that controls Perpendicularity between two 90° surfaces, or features. Surface Perpendicularity is controlled with two parallel planes acting as its tolerance zone. Axis Perpendicularity is a tolerance that…

GD&T Symbols Orientation angularity
by GDandT Basics on November 7, 2014.

GD&T Symbol: Relative to Datum: Yes MMC or LMC applicable: Yes (Uncommon) Drawing Callout: Description: Angularity is the symbol that describes the specific orientation of one feature to another at a referenced angle. It can reference a 2D line referenced to another 2D element, but more commonly it relates the orientation of one surface plane…
