Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This advanced, online, instructor-supported course thoroughly covers some of the more used geometric dimensioning controls used on mechanical engineering drawings. The basic applications of position are explained in greater detail including fixed and floating fastener, zero tolerance, size feature datums, and composite vs. two single segments. How to control the size and location non-size features are also explained. Coaxial relationships and control of rectangular features is also covered.
