Tolerancing on Quick Turn

Post by tecteach » Sun 03 Jan , 2010 23:30 pm

I am looking at a project using limits and fits and was wondering if you can apply a tolerance to a dimension :
eg : instead of 20mm diameter, can you have 19.60 - 19.99 ?
Why did I choose this profession, cos it aint for the money !

Enter as much information about your CNC hardware and software as you can - it makes it easier for everyone to know what you're talking about then.

Not really - whatever you draw is (or should be) what you get out of the machine.
So if you draw a 20mm diameter, the machine offsets are setup correctly and the tool geometry (eg, tip radius) matches the software then you will get a 20mm diameter bar.
If you want it slightly undersize, then I'd favour drawing at the lower tolerance so that any push-off or wear will keep the part within tolerance.
