Can GD&T Extraction Really Be Automated?

Yes! Most quality technicians have been exposed to and probably use geometric dimensioning and tolerance (GD&T) information in their day-to-day work duties. After all, GD&T has been in use for over 50 years. The creation of it is credited to Stanley Parker who developed the notion of “true position.” GD&T more accurately defines the features of a part using a variety of standardized symbols.

Today’s automation technology gives us the best chance at delivering useful information from the beginning of the process, right from the drawing when it is “ballooned” for inspection and fabrication. New one-click digital automation allows us to capture all the relevant GD&T data from the drawing.
