GEOTOL PRO GD&T FUNDAMENTALS ONLINE COURSE
This GD&T Fundamentals program is a full professional level course that provide knowledge on the basics as well as the more advanced concepts of geometric tolerancing. It is delivered per the ASME Y14.5-2009 dimensioning and tolerancing standard and consists of 17 interactive units. This program has been presented and refined over the past 30 years and covers what personnel need to know in order to work in an engineering, manufacturing and quality environment on a daily basis. The program is designed to build knowledge in steps, keeping the students engaged all the way through. This program is great for people new to the subject, those looking for a refresher course, or people who are interested in the more advanced and specialized concepts of geometric tolerancing.
The units start with a series of video clips of both Al Neumann and Scott Neumann teaching the lesson. Al and Scott trade off, sportscaster style, teaching the subject by talking about the engineering drawings, showing computer animations and using wood and plastic models to demonstrate inspection techniques. In between the video clips, the students are asked interactive questions on screen. The questions range from multiple choice, drag and drop, or hot spot buttons. After the questions, Al and Scott then provide the answers before continuing to the next topic. The student’s grades are tracked and reported at the end of each unit.
The students may follow along with the lessons in their GeoTol Pro workbook with pages that match the slides on screen. The 12 month access also allows the students to go back and review both the video clips and questions to reinforce the concepts as needed. See the program outline for the topics covered.
GEOTOL PRO GD&T APPLICATIONS AND STACKS ONLINE COURSE
This course is presented in a sports-caster style presentation with Al Neumann and Scott Neumann presenting the advanced topics of GD&T; Applications and Tolerance Stacks. 1 year access. This course does not review the basics, so make sure you have a good understanding of GD&T before going on to this advanced course. Pre-requisite is the GeoTol Pro GD&T Fundamentals Online Course.
The Applications and Tolerance Stacks workbook is recommended, but not included.
The stacks section is contained in the first 6 units of this program, 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.
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 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.
