Australia and NZ GD&T standards

Australia and NZ GD&T standards

I am looking for a book on GD&T and am not sure if the ones that usually come recommended online will be suitable in Aus since they are based on ASME Y14.5-2009 which I don't have access too either.

Is anyone outside of USA able to recommend a book and/or applicable standards that I can purchase?


RE: Australia and NZ GD&T standards

If not using ASME, then the other major system is the series of ISO standards on tolerancing. (Aside: don't just assume that ASME isn't pertinent down under; some companies there might use it, just as I'm in the U.S. but know of companies here that use ISO.)

For reference materials on the ISO system, I suggest you visit the following thread and scroll down to CheckerHater's comment posted on 22 Jan 16. Lots of links given...

My understanding that ISO 1101 points to many substandards, each with a stiff price. So ASME Y14.5-2009 may be your best bet although even that one is around $100 USD.
