Eleven Cardinal Dimensioning Rules based on ANSI Y14 Standards Based on ANSI/ASME Y14.5M-1994 and others 1. Dimensions should not be applied to hidden lines. Choose another view where the feature is visible or make the feature visible via sectioning. 2. Dimensions should not be placed directly on a part. Use witness (extension) lines. Dimensions using leaders may directly touch a visible (object or part) line. 3. Dimension should not be within the perimeter of a part. Place all dimensions outside of the part perimeter. Only witness lines and/or leaders should touch the part or be within the part perimeter. 4. Dimensioning of a particular feature should only occur once, even if calculated. 5. Where possible, apply dimension in a view containing the true shape projection (TSP) of the feature. For instance, the TSP of a cylindrical feature is where it is seen as a circle. Thus when dimensioning the diameter (or radius), do so in the view where the feature appears as a circle, not as a rectangle.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
