Good ASME Y14... Standards to Have?

Good ASME Y14... Standards to Have?

Good ASME Y14... Standards to Have?


I'm trying to put together a list of ASME Y14... standards that would be good to have on site.
I know there's a lot of them but there's only certain ones that are really applicable, since some of the other ones override company practices.

- ASME Y14.1 - Engineering Drawing Practices
- ASME Y14.24 - Types and Applications of Engineering Drawings
- ASME Y14.41 - Digital Product Definition Data Practices (standard for supplying 3D models)
- ASME Y14.5 - Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing
- ASME Y14.8 - Casting, Forgings, and Molded Parts

These are all really good, but I can't seem to remember the ASME Y14?? standard for inspection setups, in accordance with the Y14.5?
This would be one of the most important ones, I think, and I thought they were working on one a few year back.

Q: Does this exist and, if so, what is the ASME number?

You are probably looking for Y14.43 - 2011 Dimensioning and Tolerancing Principles for Gages and Fixtures.

If you want to have ALL of them, start with Y14.100 - 2013 Engineering Drawing Practices. It will have list that looks somehow like this:

Perfect, that's the one - Thank you!

Those trailing zeros are are meaningful... ASME Y14.1 is actually "Decimal Inch Drawing Sheet Size and Format".

What does your company do?

Wow, Y14.1 and Y14.100 are different?? Thanks for the tip!
