Drafting Standards, GD&T & Tolerance Analysis FAQ

Drafting Standards

What are some ANSI/ASME standards I should use? by MadMango
Posted: 12 Oct 04 (Edited 11 Mar 10)

Below is an ongoing list of ANSI/ASME standards that are most common to drafting standards and Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerances (GD&T).  If you would like to see additions please contact me and I'll update the list.

I have taken off the date codes, you should determine what version of the standards your company will use, and add the date code to your drawing references.
The following are basic ASME standards:
ASME Y14.1- Drawing sheet size and format
ASME Y14.1M- Metric sheet size and format
ASME Y14.100- Engineering drawing and practices
ASME Y14.2- Line conventions and lettering
ASME Y14.3- Multi-view and sectional view drawings
ASME Y14.4- Pictorial drawings
ASME Y14.5- Dimensioning and Tolerancing
ASME Y14.24- Types and applications of Engineering drawings
ASME Y14.34- Associated lists
ASME Y14.35- Drawing revisions
ASME Y14.38- Abbreviations
ASME Y14.41- Digital product definition drawing practices
ASME Y14.42- Electronic approval systems

The following are Y14 specialty standards:
ASME Y14.6- Screw threads
ASME Y14.7- Gears and Splines
ASME Y14.8- Casting and Forgings
ASME Y14.13- Springs
ASME Y14.18- Drawings for optical parts
ASME Y14.31- Undimensioned drawings
ASME Y14.32- Ground Vehicle drawing practices
ASME Y14.36- Surface texture symbols
ASME Y14.37- Composite part drawings
ASME Y14.40- Graphic symbols
ASME Y14.43- Dimensioning and tolerancing of functional gages
ASME Y14.44- Reference designations
