Scott Neumann from TCI-GeoTol will teach a virtual GD&T for MBD Master Class on September 29 & October 1, 2020. The Master Class was previously only offered at 3D CIC.
You may be familiar with GD&T, but are you stuck in the ‘olden times’? Join us in the modern age to learn how to implement the latest methods of using the GD&T standards. We’ll demonstrate unambiguous product definition with GD&T through a variety of examples. Learn the importance of selecting Datum Features and how more functional Datum Reference Frames are the key to better part control. Separate requirements for better Design, Manufacturing, and Inspection documentation.
GD&T Master Class: $595 per person
We are pleased to offer a discount of $100 per person to any company registering and sending 3 people or more to the GD&T Master Class. Please email Action Engineering for your company discount code.
If you are not taken to the checkout page, please try clearing your cart.
Attendees will receive 3D PDFs of the course examples from Action Engineering. You do not need your laptop.
Session #1 ᛫ September 29, 2020 ᛫ 9am to 12pm MT // 11am to 2pm ET
Not Your Grandparents’ GD&T (aka GD&T for the Modern World)
You may be familiar with GD&T, but are you stuck in the ‘olden times’? The tolerancing definitions in ASME Y14.5 haven’t changed much in recent years, but the way we apply geometric tolerancing has improved! The move away from plus/minus tolerancing into full position and profile tolerances on features is needed for a simpler and clearer design intent. Join us in the modern age to learn how to implement the latest methods of using the GD&T standards. We’ll demonstrate unambiguous product definition with GD&T through a variety of examples.
- Quick review of GD&T principles
- Why plus/minus tolerancing cannot be trusted
- Full GD&T is necessary for better MBD
- Hands-on exercise
Putting pencil to paper is the best way to learn proper GT (and we don’t mean D) for MBD. Work through examples together with the focus on functional design requirements.
Session #2 ᛫ October 1, 2020 ᛫ 9am to 12pm MT // 11am to 2pm ET
A More Functional Datum Reference Frame
Learn the differences between Datums and Datum Features through examples. Simpler and more functional Datum Reference Frames are the key to better part control.
- Datum Reference Frame created from actual Datum Features
- Learn how to differentiate Design, Manufacturing, and Inspection requirements using 3D digital data documentation.
Work through more examples focused on understanding the Datum Reference Frame, constraining the 3D model in 3D space, and hands-on examples of design authoring, manufacturing work instructions, and automated inspection.
