In our latest on-demand webinar, Greg Paulsen, Director of Application Engineering, and Jason McClure, VP of Manufacturing and Quality, tackle an aspect of CNC Machining that is both its greatest pitfall and triumph: tolerances. In the words of Xometry Greg, "Drawings are love letters to your machinist."

Key Points in the webinar:

  • General tolerance ranges, types of tolerances, and when to apply them
  • Call out for tighter tolerances with clearance and interference fits
  • Fits, datums, or GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning & Tolerance)
  • Avoiding over-tolerancing and checking stack-up
  • Best practice guidelines for CAD and drawings
  • Live Q & A discussing typical uses of call out and more
