British Standards help
« on: February 05, 2009, 07:20:25 AM »
Hi all,
   I was wondering if someone might be able to help me with the above problem: -

Our client has recently started questioning our dimensioning/standards etc. when using Autodesk Inventor - granted, this is the "CAD General" forum - but it applies to AutoCAD too.

I was wondering what (if any) books you might be able to recommend on the basis of British Standard 308.

My boss & I have trawled through the British standards website, and come up with the attached (pdf) list.

Any help/suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.

(I covered British Standard 308 drawing practices when I was at college, but that was a decade ago, and the memory of what goes where etc. has long since faded.)

What standards are you using at the current time?

What type of drawings are you producing?

That's just it, due to Inventor being quite clever when it comes to dimensioning things, we're using the built-in ISO Standards. Other than that, we've kind of been making it up as we go along - copying drawings the client has provided to us seems to have been working too, but it'd be nice to have something concrete to work with/to.

The drawings we've been producing are primarily for manufacturing purposes and are all component parts of larger assemblies (none of which are any bigger than the desk I'm currently sat at)

Thanks.

Are you using GD&t?  Please post a sample drawing so we can see how you are dimensioning a part. 

Another standard you Need to think about is     http://webstore.ansi.org/RecordDetail.aspx?sku=ANSI%2fASME+Y14.5M-1994+(R1999

I'm not quite sure what ANSI has to do with British Standards - I thought ANSI were American only ?

I have full access to BSOL. If you want me to check a standard out before you purchase it, let me know.
