# What Is Regardless Of Feature Size?

## Is a sphere a feature of size?

This month our definition of terms will look at regular and irregular features of size.

5’s definitions.

A regular feature of size is said to be “one cylindrical or spherical surface (or circular element,) or two opposed parallel elements (or parallel surfaces,) associated with a directly toleranced dimension.”.

## Is a Plane a feature of size?

What is Feature of Size? The feature of size is either a cylindrical or a spherical surface or a set of two opposite parallel surface with a dimension. … It should be a spherical, cylindrical or a parallel set surfaces for which a centre axis or plane can be calculated from the surfaces.

## What are Datum Features?

A datum feature is a part feature (or FOS), that contacts a datum during measurement. A datum is a theoretically exact plane (or axis or center-plane), from which dimensional measurement should be made. … During measurement, the datum feature will contact the simulated datum which in this case is a surface plate.

## What is the runout symbol?

It is a characteristic that is generally called out when you have a part that must rotate around a central axis and have all points on the entire surface of the part be in spec. In GD&T, the total runout symbol is a double arrow.

## What is the definition of the term regardless of feature of size?

The Regardless of feature size(RFS) is the feature of the size where it can be called out for a hole or a shaft when there is no need of MMC or LMC.

## What are the types of GD&T?

ASME Y14. 5 talks about five categories of geometric dimensioning and Tolerance (GD&T) controls. Form is one among them. Form itself has four sub-types of GD&T control: Straightness, Flatness, Circularity, and Cylindricity.

## What are GD&T symbols?

In geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), a unique set of GD&T symbols are used to define the relationships between part features and measurement references.

## What is feature of size?

In GD&T the term feature-of-size (FOS) refers to any surface, or set of parallel surfaces associated with a size dimension. Specific examples of features of size include: A hole diameter (a cylindrical surface) Plate thickness (two opposed parallel surfaces)

## How many GD&T symbols are there?

Geometric tolerances are specified using symbols on a drawing. Currently, we have 16 symbols for geometric tolerances, which are categorized according to the tolerance they specify.

## What is the least material condition?

Least material condition is a feature of size symbol that describes a dimensional or size condition where the least amount of material (volume/size) exists within its dimensional tolerance. The callout also overrides GD&T Rule#2 or the Regardless of Feature Size rule.

## What does flatness symbolize?

Description: GD&T Flatness is very straight forward. It is a common symbol that references how flat a surface is regardless of any other datums or features. It comes in useful if a feature is to be defined on a drawing that needs to be uniformly flat without tightening any other dimensions on the drawing.

## What are the 3 types of tolerance?

Three basic tolerances that occur most often on working drawings are: limit dimensions, unilateral, and bilateral tolerances. Three basic tolerances that occur most often on working drawings are: limit dimensions, unilateral, and bilateral tolerances.

## How flatness is calculated?

The flatness of a strip of steel is determined by measuring the maximum deviation between a perfect straight line and the steel at two specified distances (t1 and t2). The Flatness is determined by subtracting t2 from t1.

## What is maximum material limit?

Deviation – This is the difference between the maximum, minimum, or actual size of a shaft or hole and the basic size. Maximum Material Condition (MMC) – This is the maximum limit of an external feature; for example, a shaft manufactured to its high limits would contain the maximum amount of material.

## How is flatness tolerance defined?

In GD&T flatness tolerance defines a zone between two parallel planes within which a surface must lie. Since flatness is applied to an individual surface, this tolerance does not need to be related to a datum.

## What is the difference between MMC and LMC?

MMC is the condition of a feature which contains the maximum amount of material, that is, the smallest hole or largest pin, within the stated limits of size. LMC is the condition in which there is the least amount of material, the largest hole or smallest pin, within the stated limits of size.

## Why is GD&T needed?

Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) is a design approach and manufacturing mechanism that helps engineers and designers communicate how to bring a part design to life. When documented correctly using GD&T, it is possible to build a part that exactly matches its on-paper plans.

## What does M mean in GD&T?

maximum material conditionIn GD&T, maximum material condition (MMC) refers to a feature-of-size that contains the greatest amount of material, yet remains within its tolerance zone. Some examples of MMC include: Largest pin diameter. Smallest hole size.
