Readers will learn:

1. To select the optimal datum features for parts.

2. The rules for defining datum features, applying geometric tolerances to datum features and the most appropriate material condition symbols.

3. The six spatial degrees of freedom and how to assign datum features to stabilize a part.

4. How to fixture a part properly on its datum features.

5. How to designate the degrees of spatial freedom eliminated by each datum feature on a part.

6. How to apply angular orientation datum features and what affect they have on part stability.

7. How to establish a valid datum...
