Dimensioning and Tolerancing for Aluminum Extrusions

Defining accurate tolerances for your aluminum extrusion design prints could be considered an acquired skill, honed over years of creating new product designs. While some engineers use block tolerances on their prints, others may be overzealous by assigning too many critical-to-function (CTF) tolerances. Here are successful tips to determine your CTF tolerances that enhance component manufacturability. Not take away from it.
