Suggestive Nominal Adjustments

The above image is, Close Proximity

Today's song is Sharing The Night Together by Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show, released in 1978.

How close is, too close? What tolerance should be allowed in making things fit? These are often important considerations for people.

I had to ask myself these very essential questions over the weekend. I printed some art images out and discovered I had to trim the edges to make them precisely fit in the picture frames. The dimensions given for the prints and picture frames are stated. Why the need for trimming?

As I learned 30 years ago in my college classes, Dimensional metrology comes into play when measurements are required. In particular, a suggestive nominal measurement is not an exact measurement. For instance, a 2 x 4 inch piece of lumber is not exactly 2 inches by 4 inches; within a certain tolerance, it is close to those values.

For most production items, including printing art and the intended enclosing picture frames, an object size of "x by y" of the same nominal measurement likely differs in the matching of those two objects with respect to exact size. That's why the art of trimming comes into play.

In my case, last Friday night, my wife, Sherry, and I shared the evening together trimming the poster size art to fit the picture frame. We obviously worked in close proximity of each other for that task. We've had plenty of practice for such things over the years...
