Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing is not new, but there is a newness about it. Over a career of 30 years, Don Day continuously worked to develop this 160 page seminar text. The result is a tool that facilitates and maximizes learning. The entire text is in landscape format which makes it possible to include more complex drawings than are usually found in GD&T texts. Many of the illustrations are solid models of actual parts including some from Don's own product, the Inter-Mec Air Clutch Brake.

The GD&T Hierarchy
by Don Day

The GD&T Hierarchy is used throughout the book to illustrate relationships between the 14 geometric tolerances. The book walks you through a brief history of engineering drawings. Then goes on to prove how it is not possible to utilize the latest developments in solid modeling, computer aided manufacturing and automated inspection without GD&T. The most usable geometric tolerances are featured with numerous application examples.
Highlights of the text include:
  • Numerous Rules of Thumb
  • Overlays to illustrate concepts
  • Flowcharts
  • Dynamic tolerancing diagrams
