Basic question but could lead me in the right direction from here...
I have a drawing(OLD) that says "Sides must be flat up to Diameter" Where te arrows are pointed are where the note was. From what I know can geometric tolerances be used instead of that note. If so I did some work seeing how to replicate it with that and this is what I did. Does that make sense and if maybe there are more resources out there to get me on my way if I run into more stuff like this.
Be very careful with GD&T.. Trying to be "too fancy" can just raise the cost of your parts considerably.
In my opinion its better to not use GD&T if you don't know exactly how it works.
Thats like syaing don't get married when your married for 50 years . I worked at a few places but never was in a situation yet to use it round the clock ro even for a few minutes. I guess some companies love it and some don't and some don't even know. I probably was in the "Don't even know" category.
Not knowing design intent it's difficult to say. But a .000 tolerance is not realistic, I assume this was just for demonstration purposes.
Again, working from ignorance, I'd probably use flat for one side and parallel for the other.
As all above have correctly stated, the cost of your part could rocket if
GD&T is used unnecessary and it would be wrong to give you an answer
as to how tight your tolerance should be.
With that caveat mind, here is an example of how I would approach
a flatness tol on one side and a parallel tol on the other to tie them together.
Again this is only a suggested guild, your actual tol / price requirement may be very different.
Hope this is of help
Thanks that is really nice and maybe what I even wanted except right now this is a new language that can't learn in 1 day and a shop floor would have to learn as well. I will def save this as a good example!
