Let DCS train and work with your team to implement GD&T best practices and principles
There are a number of reasons to adopt GD&T at your company:
Clarity and consistency in the design process. GD&T provides a clear and concise method for defining a reference coordinate system on a component or assembly that can be used throughout manufacturing and inspection. This reduces misinterpretations, and the need for costly engineering changes and rework that can result from a lack of clarity.
Dramatic time savings. By using GD&T, engineers dramatically reduce their need for drawing notes to describe complex geometry requirements on components and assemblies.
Fit with accepted design-for-manufacturing methods. The proper application of GD&T closely dovetails accepted and logical mechanical design processes and design-for-manufacturing considerations. For example, the allowable variations as defined through GD&T can be directly read, or “imported,” into 3-D tolerance analysis software such as 3DCS.

Working on 2D drawings and designs? This 20-Hour course is a comprehensive GD&T course focused on the review of the ASME-Y14.5M-1994 standard. It can help develop and strengthen your skills for dimensioning and tolerancing, as well as improve your current designs by letting you go through them with an ASME certified expert.
As a continuation of the previous GD&T course, this 20-Hour course is focused on practical applications of GD&T for real world experience.
Prerequisites: Basic GD&T, or equivalent experience.
Classes are available on demand at customer location or at DCS's Headquarters in Troy, Michigan, USA.
