Abstract

This paper reports on part of a project related to the development of a computer model for GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing) to support tolerance specification, validation and tolerance analysis. The paper examines the basic elements involved in geometric variation and their interrelations. Logical tolerance classes are defined in terms of a target, a datum reference frame, and metric relations. ASME Y14.5 tolerance classes are mapped to these logical classes. The development of a data model for GD&T and its application in supporting design specification, validation, and tolerance analysis are discussed.
