Dimension the feature in a view where its characteristic shape is shown 5 English parts are dimensioned in inches with decimals not fractions 6 Metric parts are dimensioned in mm w decimals 7 Units are omitted from the dimension numbers since they are normally understood to be in millimeters or inches 8 Always leave at least 38 in 10 mm between the object and the rst row of dimensions Successive rows of dimensions should be equal and at least 025 in 6 mm apart uepl u Fundamental Rules of Dimensioning 9 Place dimensions outside of the views except for large circles Keep dimensions at least 38 inches or 10 mm from the view 10 Place longer dimensions outside of shorter ones 11 Place the dimension text between the dimension lines 12 Use arrow heads at the end of the dimension lines 13 Inch drawings do not include a preceding zero for dimensions less than one For example use 50 to indicate 12 inch Metric dimensions require a preceding zero eg use 050 to indicate 12 millimeter Deptofquot

included that is not needed to produce the object 4 There is no need to calculate scale or assume any dimension to define or check features of the object 5 Dimensions are related to the view that best shows the features being dimensioned 6 Multiple rows of dimensions are spaced uniformly with at least 14quot between rows and 38quot from views uepl u Guidelines for Dimensioning 7 Longer dimensions are placed outside shorter ones so that witness lines do not cross dimension lines 8 All strings ofdimensions are lined up 9 Whenever possible dimensions are not given to hidden lines 10 Dimension

Tolerances and why do we need them Different types of tolerances To learn how to effectively tolerance parts in engineering drawings AllowanceClearance Expressing tolerances in AutoCAD Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics Tolerancing Definition Allowance for a specific variation in the size and geometry of part Why is it needed No one orthing is perfect l Hence engineers have come up with a way to make things close to perfect by specifying Tolerances l Since variation from the drawing is inevitable the acceptable degree of variation must be specified Large variation may affect the functionality of the part Small variation will effect the cost of the part requires precise manufacturing requires inspection and the rejection of parts Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics When does Tolerances become important Assemblies Parts will often not fit together if their dimensions do not fall with in a certain range of values Interchangeability If a replacement part is used it must be a duplicate of the original part within certain limits of deviation The relationship between functionality and size or shape of an ob39ect varies from part to part mum L Tolerances do not affect its function tofu dand Tolerances are important here Food for thought Tolerance levels in this mechanism Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics Tolerance in relation to Cost generally increases with smaller tolerance Small tolerances cause an exponential increase in cost Therefore your duty as an engineer have to consider Do you need 1310001in or is 101in good enough Parts with small tolerances often require special methods of manufacturing Parts with small tolerances often require greater inspection and call for the rejection of parts 9 Greater Quality Inspection 9 Greater cost Do not specify a smaller tolerance than is necessary Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics How are Tolerances Specified Size Limits specifying the allowed variation in each dimension length width height diameter etc are given on the drawing Geometry Geometric Tolerancing Allows for specification of tolerance for the geometry of a part separate from its size GDT Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing uses special symbols to control different geometric features of a part Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics Value of Tolerance The tolerance for a single dimension may be specified l with the dimension and then the tolerance The tolerance is total variation between the upper and lower limits E HIUE UMIU mm Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics General Tolerances These are specified when all dimension in the drawings have the same tolerance 0 These notes are used to reduce the number of dimensions required on a drawing and to

allowance is ALLOWANCE MMC HOLE MMC SHAFT CLEARANCE Clearance is defined as the loosest fit or maximum intended difference between mating parts The calculation formula for clearance is CLEARANCE LMC HOLE LMC SHAFT Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics Types of Fit Types of Fit Clearance fit The parts are toleranced such that the largest shaft is smaller than the smallest hole The allowance is positive and greater than zero Interference fit The max clearance is always negative The parts must always be forced together Transition fit The parts are toleranced such that the allowance is negative and the max clearance is positive The parts may be loose or forced together Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics BASIC FITS OF MATING PARTS Standard ANSI Fits Running and Sliding fits RC are intended to provide a running performance with suitable lubrication allowance The range is from R01 to R09 Force fits FN or Shrink fits constitute a special type of interference fit characterized by maintenance of constant pressure The range is from FN1 to FN5 A force fit is referred to as interference fit or a shrink fit The smallest amount of interference is

tolerancing is necessary to control speci c geometric form and location Major features ofthe part should be used to establish the basic coordinate system but are not necessary de ned as datum Subcoordinated systems that are related to the major coordinates are used to locate and orient features on a part De ne part features in relation to three mutually perpendicular reference plans and along features that are parallel to the motion of CAM equipment Establish datum related to the function of the part and relate datum features in order of precedence as a basis for CAM usage Completely and accurately dimension geometric shapes Regular geometric shapes may be de ned by mathematical formulas A pro le feature that is de ned with mathematical formulas should not have coordinate dimensions unless required for inspection or reference Coordinate or tabular dimensions should be used to identify approximate dimensions on an arbitrary profile Use the same type of coordinate dimensioning system on the entire drawing Continuity of pro le is necessary for CADD Clearly de ne contour changes at the change or point of tangency Define at least four points along an irregular pro le Circular hole patterns may be de ned with polar coordinate dimensioning When possible dimension angles in degrees and decimal parts of degrees Base dimensions at the mean of a tolerance because the computer numerical control CNC programmer normally splits a tolerance and works to the mean While this is theoretically desirable one can not predict where the part will be made Dimensions should always be based on design requirements If it is known that a part will be produced always by CNC methods then establish dimensions without limits that conform to CNC machine capabilities Bilateral pro le tolerances are also recommended for the same reason Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics Further Reading Interpretation of Geometric Dimensioning amp Tolerancing by Daniel E Puncochar
