Geometric Boundaries IV The Interpretation and Application of GD&T ASME Y14.5-2018
Based on:

ASME Y14.5-2018 (Revision of ASME Y14.5-2009)
ASME Y14.41-2012 Digital Product Definition Practices

Geometric Boundaries IV is a practical guide for the interpretation and application of GD&T. You will find comprehensive and easy to read illustrations on all relevant dimensioning and tolerancing subject areas. This training and desktop reference book is a valuable resource that details the symbology on: datum's, limit tolerancing, true position, flatness, straightness, circularity (Roundness), independency application, perpendicularity, parallelism, profile of surface, profile of line, runout tolerances, special applications and more!. This book is perfect for individuals new and experienced in applying the principles of geometric tolerancing and dimensioning. It shows how to break down the language of geometric product definition into a series of steps that ensure that the reader can interpret and apply GD&T. Each chapter is designed to elicit a response based on functionality, cost effectiveness, producibility, ease of inspection, and many other factors that must be considered to optimize the dimensioning and tolerancing method for design, manufacturing and inspection.
