10 Fundamental ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning Rules Each dimension has a tolerance except reference, maximum, minimum, or stockDimensioning and tolerancing must be completeShow each necessary dimension of an end productSelect and arrange dimensions to suit the function and mating relationship of a part
11 Fundamental ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning Rules Dimensions must not be subject to more than one interpretationDo not specify the manufacturing processes unless necessaryIdentify nonmandatory dimensions with an appropriate noteArrange dimensions to provide required information and optimum readabilityShow dimensions in true profile views and visible outlines
12 Fundamental ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning Rules Dimension diameter or thickness of materials manufactured to gage or code numbers90°angle is implied for centerlines and lines90°basic angle is implied for centerlines located by basic dimensionsA zero basic dimension applies where axes, center planes, or surfaces are shown one over the other with established geometric controls
13 Fundamental ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning Rules Unless otherwise specified, all:Dimensions and tolerances are measured at 20°C (68°F)Dimensions and tolerances apply in a free state condition except for nonrigid partsTolerances apply for the full depth, length, and width of the featureDimensions and tolerances apply on the drawing where specified
14 Fundamental ASME Y14.5 Dimensioning Rules Coordinate systems:Right-handed (arranged clockwise)Labeled axes and positive direction shown3-D model complies with ASME Y14.41, Digital Product Definition Data Practices
17 Unidirectional Dimensioning Numerals, figures, and notes lettered horizontallyRead from the bottom of the drawing sheetMechanical drafting for manufacturing
18 Aligned DimensioningNumerals, figures, and notes aligned with the dimension linesArchitectural and structural draftingHorizontal dimensions read from the bottomVertical dimensions read from the right side
19 Rectangular Coordinate Dimensioning without Dimension Lines Dimension values aligned with extension linesDimension represents a measurement originating from datums or coordinatesFeatures such as holes sized using specific notes or a tablePopular for:Precision sheet metal part drawingsElectronics drafting
20 Rectangular Coordinate Dimensioning without Dimension Lines
21 Tabular DimensioningForm of rectangular coordinate dimensioning without dimension linesFeatures dimensioned in a table
22 Chart DimensioningUsed when a part or assembly has one or more dimensions that change depending on the specific application
23 Millimeter Dimensions Millimeters (mm)Common International System of Units (SI) unit of measureGeneral note: UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED, ALL DIMENSIONS ARE IN MILLIMETERSFollow any inch dimensions with IN
24 Proper Use of Metric Units Omit decimal point and 0 when dimension is a whole numberPrecede a decimal value that is less than 1 with a 0When the value is greater than a whole number by a fraction of a mm, do not place a 0 next to last digitException: when displaying tolerance values
25 Proper Use of Metric Units Plus and minus tolerance values have same number of decimal placesLimit tolerance values have same number of decimal pointsUnilateral tolerances use a single 0 without a corresponding + or – sign
26 Inch Dimensions Decimal inches (IN) United States (U.S.) customary unit of measureGeneral note: UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED, ALL DIMENSIONS ARE IN INCHESFollow any millimeter dimensions with mm
27 Proper Use of Inch Units Do not precede a value that is less than 1 inch with a 0Express a specified dimension to the same number of decimal places as its toleranceFractional inches generally indicate larger tolerance
28 Proper Use of Inch Units Plus and minus tolerance values have the same number of decimal placesUnilateral tolerances use the + and – signThe 0 value has the same number of decimal places as the value that is greater or less than 0Limit tolerance values have the same number of decimal points
29 Proper Use of Angular Units Use decimal or degrees–minutes–seconds formatAngle and tolerance values have the same number of decimal placesInclude 0°or 0°0″ when specifying only minutes or seconds, as applicable
30 Using Fractions Not as common as decimal inches or millimeters Architectural and structural drawingsGenerally indicate larger tolerance
31 Arrowheads Terminate dimension lines and leaders Three times as long as they are wideConsistent sizeFilled in solid or open
32 Dimension Line Spacing First dimension line:Uniform distance from the object.375 in. (10 mm) minimumin. ( mm) preferredSucceeding dimension lines:Equally spaced.25 in. (6 mm) minimumin. ( mm) preferred
40 Preferred Dimensioning Practices Avoid crossing extension linesDo not break extension lines when they crossNever cross extension lines over dimension linesBreak the extension line where it crosses over a dimension line when necessary
41 Preferred Dimensioning Practices Never break a dimension lineBreak extension lines when they cross over or near an arrowheadAvoid dimensioning over or through the objectAvoid dimensioning to hidden features
42 Preferred Dimensioning Practices Avoid long extension linesAvoid using any line of the object as an extension lineDimension between views when possibleGroup adjacent dimensions
43 Preferred Dimensioning Practices Dimension to views that provide the best shape descriptionDo not use a centerline, extension line, phantom line, visible object line, or a continuation of any of these lines as a dimension lineStagger adjacent dimension numerals so they do not line up

74 [Insert , match to unequal bilateral tolerance style] Unilateral Tolerance[Insert , match to unequal bilateral tolerance style]Used by some companies to define fits between mating partsOften avoided by CNC machine programmers
75 Limit DimensioningCalculate the tolerance from the upper and lower limitsCommon for defining fits between mating partsPreferred by some companies or departments
76 Single Limits Can be used for common machine processes Follow dimension value with (MIN) or (MAX)Design determines unspecified limit
84 Interference Fit Force or shrink fit Examples: Bushing pressed onto a housingPin is pressed into a hole
