### Dimensioning Systems

• Four different systems of dimensioning used in U.S. and Canada

• Fractional inch

• Decimal inch

• Dual dimensioning

• SI Metric

### Dimensioning Systems

• Fractional type steel rules divided into units of:

• 1/16

• 1/32

• 1/64

• Major graduation accentuated by longer lines

• Some have small numbers printed adjacent to lines

### Fractional Dimensioning

• Always reduce a fraction to its lowest terms

• If numerator is even number-it can be reduced

### Fractional Dimensioning

### Decimal Scales

• Subdivided into units of 1/10, 1/20, 1/50, or 1/100 in.

• 1/50 is sufficient for most applications

• With 50 increments to an inch each increment =.02 in.

• Reading between increments-capable of determining closest .01 inch measurement

### Decimal Scales

• Closer measurements require using micrometer, vernier or dial calipers

• Major graduations are accented by longer lines-usually every 1/10 in.

• Popular scales graduation style has .04 and .06 increments slightly longer than .02 and .08

### Decimal Dimensioning

• Drawing may be dimensioned using two- or three-place decimals

• Amount of tolerance is determined by number of decimal places

### Decimal Dimensioning

• .50 may have tolerance of ± .01

• .500 may have tolerance of ± .001

• .5000 may have tolerance of ±.0001

### Decimal Dimensioning

• Converting fractions to decimals-results in too many decimal places

• Need to round off those numbers to desired places

### Decimal Dimensioning

• Rule #1-When the figure following the last digit to be retained is greater than 5---increase the last number by one

• .016 becomes .02

• .047 becomes .05

• .078 becomes .08

### Decimal Dimensioning

• Rule #2-When the figure following the last digit to be retained is less than 5---retain the last number

• .031 becomes .03

• .062 becomes .06

• .093 becomes .09

### Decimal Dimensioning

• Rule #3-When the figure following the last digit to be retained is exactly 5 and the figure to be retained is odd---increase the last number by one

• .375 becomes .38

• .875 becomes .88

### Decimal Dimensioning

• Rule #4-When the figure following the last digit to be retained is exactly 5 and the figure to be retained is even---retain the last number

• .125 becomes .12

• .625 becomes .62

### Decimal Dimensioning

• Rule #3 and #4 are different

• Established to even numbers as often as possible

• Even numbers are preferred

• Decimal numbers divided by two-e.g.-diameter/2 = radius-----results will contain same number of decimal places

### Metric Dimensioning

• Metric increment of measure is millimeter

• Will be noted if different

• Dual dimensioning system-SI Metric-used in U.S. and Canada

• Convert a metric dimension to inches by multiplying it by .03937

### Metric Dimensioning

• Conversion charts are available to provide converted dimensions

• Metric scales are available and can be used-eliminating need for conversion

### Metric Dimensioning

• Metric scales

• Have graduations every millimeter of half-millimeter

• Designated “mm” or “1/2 mm”

• Every fifth millimeter is accentuated by a longer line

• Every tenth millimeter is identified by a number

### Metric Dimensioning

• Arrangement of numerals indicates relationship

### Title Blocks

• Refer to scale as the “Do Scale”

• “D” stands for the drawing

• For a shaft

• At MMC when tolerance is added to its size dimension (.760)

• At LMC when tolerance is subtracted from it size dimension (.740)

### Maximum & Least Material Condition

• Internal feature-hole-is at MMC when it is at its smallest size

Sizes are exaggerated. NTS-Not To Scale

### Maximum & Least Material Condition

• Internal feature-hole-is at LMC when it is at its largest size

Sizes are exaggerated. NTS-Not To Scale

### Maximum & Least Material Condition

• On any part

### Allowance

• Minimum clearance between mating parts

• Maximum interference between mating parts

• Calculate by subtracting MMC of shaft from MMC of hole

### Allowance

• When shaft’s MMC is smaller than hole’s MMC-positive allowance-clearance

• When shaft’s MMC is larger than hole’s MMC-negative allowance-interference

### Allowance

• Positive or negative-allowance is always the tightest possible fit between mating parts

### Allowance

Use the formula for calculating allowance:

MMC Hole - MMC Shaft = Allowance

### Allowance

MMC Hole=.999

-MMC Shaft A=.998

Allowance=.001 (positive)

### Allowance

MMC Hole=.999

-MMC Shaft B=1.004

### Arcs And Circles

• When an arc is less than a complete circle-dimension it by radius

• Radial dimension doubles permit greater variation

### Arcs And Circles
