ETI's Applications of GD&T 2-Day Workshop
Based on ASME Y14.5M-1994
Applications of GD&T Workshop
product engineers, designers, checkers, engineering managers, and supplier quality engineers
This 2-day workshop teaches the thought processes involved in assigning GD&T to components. It will change the way many engineers think about part tolerancing.
The workshop focuses on four key areas:
- Understanding what constitutes good and poor drawing practices
- Understanding the common dimensioning methods used in industry
- Using geometric tolerancing to communicate system functions on component dimensions
- Understanding the logic of how to apply GD&T to components.
Students will actually perform a design function analysis on a part assembly provided by your company, then specify GD&T on assembly components during the workshop.
Customer supplies an assembly drawing and a set of corresponding detail drawings (and physical parts, if possible) to ETI four weeks prior to the workshop.
This workshop is designed for product engineers, designers, checkers, and engineering managers, and supplier quality engineers.
Students will learn how to do a design functional analysis on an assembly and use this information to assign dimensions and tolerances. They will also learn how to select datum features and how to fully define component surfaces using GD&T. Establishing tolerance values is not covered.
Small groups (8-12) are most effective in this workshop. The students will work in teams and actually create GD&T tolerance mark-ups of their company parts in the workshop.

attend our workshops walk away with more than knowledge. They gain
on-the-job skills because our materials are performance-based, and
each workshop approaches the subject from a design perspective.
