Simple question I am having a hard time finding a concrete answer on.
When angularity is called out, should the angle it refers to always be a basic dimension? Wouldn't the angularity callout BE the tolerance for the angle.
I have a customer print that has angularity only as a callout (no form tolerance) and a regular (non-basic) angle callout. My understanding is this is not correct.
Appreciate any help.
TP and David have answered the "basic" question, but I'll add that whenever you encounter ambiguous specifications it's best to ask the customer what the intent is. If there's no reference to any GD&T standard on the drawing, it means that the designer can use the symbols to mean whatever she wants them to. Even when the standard is
referenced, designers will often demonstrate their failure to understand it.
