## Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing

Chapter 3, Datums

### GDT

• Establish a reference coordinate system.

• Tell me where ‘perfect’ is.

• Tell me how far off from ‘perfect’ is allowed.

### Introduction

• Datums are nothing more and nothing less than the physical features of parts from which to make repeatable measurements.

• These features are considered theoretically exact.

• Datumsdefine a coordinate system from which to measure everything.

• Datums are usually a plane, a line, or a point.

• We will need to label the datums on our drawing so that the part inspector will know from where to measure.

### Datum Feature Symbol

• Datum Feature Symbol

### Three-Plane Concept

• define primary, secondary, and tertiary datum planes

• the primary datum is the one that functionally is usually the most critical feature or surface of the part

• the primary datum feature of the part will make contact with the theoretical datum plane in a minimum of three points

### Three-Plane Concept

• the secondary datum plane is  to the primary datum

• secondary datum feature is the one that functionally is the 2nd most critical feature or surface of the part

• 2 point minimum contact

### Three-Plane Concept

• the tertiary datum plane is  to the primary & sec. datums

• 1 point minimum contact

### Three-Plane Concept - Circular

• circular parts also require a three-plane concept for repeatable orientation

• the primary datum is usually one flat surface of the part,

• defines a datum axis along the center of cylinder

should be

a construction line

(or omitted)

should have

a center line

### Three-Plane Concept - Circular

• datum A defines an axis along the center of the cylinder
