  Advantages of the GDT Symbology

  • Symbols are more quickly drawn and, because of their compactness, can be applied at or near the place on the drawing to which they apply
  • With combinations of symbols, requirements may be clearly stated which would otherwise require long notes
  • Symbols are in clear view at the place of application on the drawing
  • Symbols are uniformly interpretable when a National Standard and its revision level is stated on the drawing
  • The symbol approach tends to provide more order and precision to the general drawing appearance
  • The use of symbolic methods is in keeping with the objectives of international standardization where barriers of language, as well as technical understanding, must be overcome.

Every feature on a component part must in some way be controlled for its SIZE, FORM, ORIENTATION, or LOCATION.

Based on the ASME Y14.5 M-1994 Standard
