TAM 151 - Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing for Machinists

3 Credits

Features interpretation of engineering drawings relative to the application of G.D. & T., the effect on manufacturing methods, verification procedures, and a comparison to and conversion to the coordinate system. Topics include G.D. & T. terms and symbols, true positioning concepts and assembly applications, angularity, parallelism, perpendicularity, datum axes, counterplanes, and actual geometric conditions and locations. Three class hours.

Prerequisite: TAM 131.
