INDUSTRIAL DESIGN & GEOMETRIC DIMENSIONING AND TOLERANCING (GD&T)
Industrial design trains one to blend applied art
and applied science in order to improve a product in terms of its visual
aspects, applicability, and usage. An industrial designer learns to work on
designs that are beneficial both for market and the customers. BE or B.Tech in
Industrial design is a four-year program . In the market of competition and
survival of the best, it is very important to design something that looks good,
usable and fit to suit the purpose of a customer, and all these at a low cost.
Almost every marketing and production industry need skilled people who can read
the need of the customer and design products accordingly to deliver them cost
effective, useful products. Industry, design or architectural studios also look
for graduates from this stream.
dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) is a system for defining and
communicating engineering tolerances. It uses a symbolic language on
engineering drawings and computer-generated three-dimensional solid models that
explicitly describe nominal geometry and its allowable variation.It tell us what degree of accuracy and precision is
needed on each controlled feature of the part. GD&T is used to define the
nominal (theoretically perfect) geometry of parts and assemblies, to define the
allowable variation in form and possible size of individual features, and to
define the allowable variation between features.
