GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009: Changes, Improvements, and Clarifications
For ASME Y14.5-2009
Advanced Dimensional Management Press
Bryan R. Fischer - 2009
Now in its second printing. The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 is the first entry in our new series of GD&T reference materials, and it discusses the principal changes and improvements in the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard. Changes in the structure, philosophy, expansion of scope, and the overall intent of the new revision are discussed. New terms, definitions, symbols, rules, feature types, tools, techniques, approaches, and changes made to each section of the standard are also discussed. The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 also includes a detailed paragraph-by-paragraph explanation of the principal changes in ASME Y14.5-2009.
Like our other GD&T reference books, the GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 is constructed to be an easy-to-use reference. The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 contains hundreds of illustrations. The GD&T reference material in the book is presented using full-color diagrams that clarify the meaning of each GD&T specification. The topics in the GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 are explained using a combination of 2D and 3D graphics and clearly-written explanations; and the material in the GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 is arranged topically, thus it is very easy to find a topic and it is very easy to understand what the GD&T specification means and how the GD&T specification works. The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 is intended to be an easy-to-use quick reference manual for GD&T per ASME Y14.5-2009, but will also help people using ASME Y14.5M-1994 and ISO GD&T.
The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 is used as part of our training courses and is a perfect addition to our highly-regarded books The Journeyman's Guide to Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing and the ""Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing Visual Glossary with GD&T At-A-Glance Sheets.
The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 is a must-have reference for anyone who needs to understand GD&T and the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard.
Author's Note: This is a great book, beautifully laid out, with 222 2D and 3D full-color illustrations. Many of the concepts explained are accompanied by figure sequences which are constructed to explain each step of a process. This book sports a new cover design, high-quality paper and binding, and will become a trusted resource for understanding GD&T. The book contains multiple approaches and examples of Datum Feature Simulation sequences and gaging examples.
The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 may be purchased as an eBook or as a hard-copy document. The eBook version will be available soon.
Praise for The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 February, 2012
"The GD&T Update Guide: ASME Y14.5-2009 Bryan R. Fischer goes to great lengths to explain in text and numerous figures the meaning and application of the new Y14.5-2009 standard. This text also explains the subtleties of the new standard, not found even in the Y14.5-2009 standard itself or other texts on the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard.
This text is the best all-encompassing explanation of the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard. One would have to read and understand seven of the currently released books by other authors on ASME Y14.5-2009 to gather the same amount of information, and not every author addresses all of the material covered by the GD&T Update Guide."
