GD&T Education

GD&T Education

GD&T Education

Ok guys hack on me if you will, but I need some help.
I am new here and new to the "automotive GD&T world."
My background is odd....
I have been a toolmaker in the appliance intustry for 21 years. I was a die designer for 4 years for the same industry. Using 2D software. (AutoCad2004.)
I acquired a job as a toolmaker for the past 4 years in the automotive industry. It is a stamping plant. I adapted well. Excelled as a toolmaker and eventually acquired a position of New tooling engineer. I'm not here to boast. Quite the opposite actually. I know dies. What I don't know is GD&T....
I talk to toolshops about how I want the dies built but i, (embarrassingly) can not talk in depth about GD&T specifics.
My ultimate question is,,,,where can I go to get the best/fastest education on GD&T? No college or junior college around here offers any education on GD&T. And I need this desperatly. i would love any input on this issue I have.

RE: GD&T Education

We brought in a GD&T specialist, James Meadows (link below), to do some in-house training for our engineers building aircraft crash-damage fixtures.  


RE: GD&T Education

Thanks so much for your posts.
We do have quite a few that have been wanting to learn more in GD&T. I think bringing in someone for some in-house training would be very adventageous for everyone involved. Thanks, Pyro.
And if they don't want to do that, then maybe I'll try the webinar. Trial by fire is the way I'm learning right now.  

RE: GD&T Education

sbozy25, Do you have more information on this webinar?
