This tolerance stack up analysis course is a DVD video series with a total of 17 units with 10+ hours of video and another 20 hours of student exercises and is based on the ASME Y14.5-2009 and ISO GPS standards. The GeoTol Applications and Tolerance Stacks Program is an advanced tolerancing course for design engineers, drafters, manufacturing engineers, quality engineers and others involved with tolerance analysis or drawing review. Anyone looking for a deeper understanding of how to apply geometric tolerancing and perform tolerance analysis will greatly benefit from this course.

Prerequisite: GeoTol Pro Fundamentals Program Level 1 and 2.

Tolerance Stack Analysis Training

The stacks section is contained in the first 6 units of this text and is designed to teach students the fundamental principles of tolerance stacks. The student will learn a variety of stack procedures, beginning with simple linear stacks on detail parts in units 1 and 2, and migrating to linear assembly stacks in Unit 3. Unit 4 begins with axial detail stacks and moves on to complex axial assembly stacks in unit 5.

Orientation tolerance stacks are covered in unit 6 and melded together with axial boundary assembly stacks to provide the participant with a complete understanding of the stacks process. Students will use this knowledge to perform tolerance stacks to ensure the design criteria is met in the application case study problems.

Design Applications

The applications section is a total of 10 units, (7 thru 17). Unit 7 begins with a quick review of the fundamentals of geometric tolerancing and a few basic applications of geometric tolerancing on simple detail parts. The following units are a series of case study examples, where the students will learn to establish datum reference frames and apply geometric tolerancing to a variety of parts.  There are a multitude of simple to complex sheet metal, cast, turned and milled parts, and welded assemblies.

The case study examples start out simple but generally grow in complexity as the units progress. In the beginning of each unit, there will be an introduction explaining the issue at hand and the necessary functional requirements to be met.  Some examples provide a detailed explanation, and in other instances, examples are incomplete by intent to make the problem less complex.

After the parts are toleranced to achieve functional requirements, there are tolerance analysis stacks and reallocation exercises the student must perform to ensure the parts meet the established requirements detailed in each introduction.
