  • A good GD&T book?

    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking for a good GD&T book that has good examples and breaks down the information in laymans terms.

    Please give me some suggestions!

    Thanks in advance,

    Kaji Ryoji!

    Kaji,
    I don't know where you are located but if you don't have any GD&T experience, I would highly recommend finding a training class to take.

    The class I took used the book "Fundamentals of Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerancing" by Alex Krulikowski. I would recommend it.

      Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing by James D Meadows has helped me out tremensously. I can recommend that one.

        Well, you should have:

        ASME Y14.5M-1994 (I think that is the lastest one)



        A good book:
        GEO-METRICS by Lowell W. Foster

          I do have GD&T experience, about 5 years of hands on.

          But there are always things that I want to look up a reference on.

            If you need a book to help in inspecting GD&T, the only one that I'm aware of is "Measuring & Gaging Geometric Tolerances" by Gary K. Griffith.

            He gives a easy to understand definition of the characteristic along with good instructions / photos of surface plate setups.

            ASQ press used to carry it. Prentice Hall may also have it as well.

              Same here... Make sure you also get the "Measurement of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing" by James D Meadows also. It goes into a lot more detail concerning measurement and measurement difficulties...

                Yep. We've got a copy of Geo-Metrics II that is a handy-dandy little reference.

                  I took his class at UW Milwaukee last year. This is a GREAT book / class. Best class I've ever had.

                    Interpretation of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing, By: Daniel E. Puncochar. Distributed by Industrial Press.
                    I like this book because it has lots of illustrations and I can use it to explain GD&T to co-workers.

                          I have Geo-Metrics to infinity and beyond!Actually Geo_metrics, and Griffith's book are good. And anything by Lowell Foster.
                          When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

                            Which one did you take? We took three of them at the Chrysler Tech Center a few years back (or maybe even longer)...
