Rule 1-Indivdual Feature of Size
 Where only a tolerance of size is specified,
the limits of size of an individual feature
prescribe the extent to which variations in
geometric form, as well as size, are
allowed. (ASTM Y14.5-1994).
 Meaning?

Summary
 All dimensions include controls of
geometry. Rule 1 states that a size control
inherently includes controls of form.
 Because of Rule 1, the need for GDT
callouts is minimized. Use carefully.
 GDT should be used to refine the
relationship between feature and form.
 GDT should open tolerances. MMC should
reduce part cost.
