Now as per the given dimension the hole diameter can vary from Then I should consider the diameter of the pin to be the dimension of the part envelope as maximum, is it correct?. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. I hope this helps. Figure 1 In Figure 1, the functional gage is designed to the virtual condition 2. Bonus tolerance is the additional tolerance available for a geometric control attached to a feature of size with MMC maximum material condition and LMC least material condition modifier.

Introduction to Bonus Tolerance Bonus tolerance is an important concept in dimensioning parts. What do you mean when you give zero tolerance at mmc?

Regardless of Feature Size | GD&T Basics

The statement is true only if location of the hole is controlled by position tolerance defined at MMC basis. We do plan on circling back and adding valuable content to the website in the future though.

Each modifier or lack thereof provides its own benefits. This section is an introduction fd&t the bonus tolerance concept.


Thanks for checking in! You do not get any bonus tolerance if the toleeance of your part becomes favorable. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action.

This means that the axis of the hole should be within this dia0. Thanks in advance RE: As to why a designer might want this: This is not correct.

Bonus Tolerance Calculation – GD&T

If locating is important for a hole and a shaft, then the “play” between them can be arrested by an Lmc modifier. An example of this would be a pin or bushing that is press fit.

Alex Kurlikovski Fundamentals book should be your best friend for the weekend. Any examples for RFS condition? Bonus tolerance will be available for the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing feature of size with MMC or LMC modifiers.

This symbol was phased out in the standard because it was deemed redundant with not putting anything there at all. For locating purposes, I would recommend using LMC as it gives bonus tolerance for manufacturing, but you need to be careful not to end up with interference condition.

In the above figure the size of the hole can vary from This increase, or extra tolerance, is called the bonus tolerance. Definition Bonus tolerance is an additional tolerance for a geometric control.

When the actual mating size of the feature of size departs from MMC towards LMCan increase in the stated tolerance— equal to the amount of the departure — is permitted. Register now while it’s still free!

It’s not the local size and it is not the actual mating envelope, it is the unrelated actual minimum material envelope. Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project vd&t. I still don’t get the concept of bonus tolerance in the snip I attached earlier.


You simply get the tolerance value as listed in the feature control frame regardless of the size that the feature is produced at. The internal feature hole is MMC at 9.

Bpnus bonus tolerance reduces the number tolerajce rejected parts by increasing toelrance tolerance zone. So the difference in their sizes hole and pin is important, because the bigger the difference the more play they will have. Another example for a useage that benefits with the application of LMC is a precast hole intended for subsequent machining. They both control the perpendicularity of a hole in this example relative to a datum. Sure, stir the pot, and make the quick exit.

The inclusion of the S or not just means that the datum references are to be considered at Regardless of Feature Size. Sure, this can check if two parts fit together and whether to throw them away if they don’t.

When the MMC modifier is used, it means that the geometric characteristic can be verified with a fixed gage. In revisions to the standard earlier thanthe symbol to indicate that the tolerance was to be taken at RFS was an S enclosed in a circle.
