— the maximum tolerance acceptance rule is the default tolerance acceptance rule;

— for the determination of the profile position, surface defects are considered as part of the specified

surface in the default case.

Introduction

This document is a geometrical product specification (GPS) standard and is to be regarded as a general

GPS standard (see ISO 14638). It influences chain link C of the chains of standards on profile surface

texture.

The ISO GPS matrix model given in ISO 14638 gives an overview of the ISO GPS system of which this

document is a part. The fundamental rules of ISO GPS given in ISO 8015 apply to this document and

the default decision rules given in ISO 14253-1 apply to the specifications made in accordance with this

document, unless otherwise indicated.

For more detailed information of the relation of this document to other standards and the GPS matrix

model, see Annex F.
This document specifies the specification operators according to ISO 17450-2.

Throughout this document, parameters are written as abbreviated terms with lower-case suffixes (as

in Rq) which are used in product documentation, drawings and data sheets.

4 Complete specification operator
4.1 Introduction

For non-explicitly specified specification elements (see ISO 21920-1) and often-used specification

operators, default settings are used. Default settings should not be expected to ensure correlation with

any particular workpiece function.

The advantage of the default specification operators given in 4.3 and 4.4 is to simplify the drawing

indications.
4.2 General

The complete specification operator (see ISO 17450-2) consists of all the operators required for an

unambiguous specification. It consists of an ordered full set of unambiguous specification operations

in an unambiguous order. For profile surface texture, the complete specification operator defines all

setting elements.

The basis for the default settings is the drawing indication according to ISO 21920-1. For R-parameters

either the setting class or the profile L-filter nesting index shall be specified. For W-parameters either

the setting class or the profile S-filter nesting index shall be specified.

For the R-parameters Ra, Rq, Rz, Rp, Rv, Rzx and Rt, and for Pt, all default settings can be specified by

the specification of the tolerance limit, see 4.4.3 to 4.4.6.

A flowchart illustrating the general way to determine the specification operators is given in Annex A.

Examples for the determination of default settings are given in Annex B. Annex C provides an overview

of the most important changes in the determination of the default settings according to this document

in relation to ISO 4288. A recommendation for the selection of settings in the absence of a specification

is given in Annex D. Annex E provides an overview of the profile and areal standards in the GPS matrix

model.
NOTE 1 There is no distinction between periodic and non-periodic profiles.

NOTE 2 This document describes specification operators. For the verification, the following applies: “the

verification operator is the physical implementation of the specification operator. It may have exactly the same

operations in the same order, in which case the method uncertainty is zero, or it may have different operations

or perform the operations in a different order, in which case the method uncertainty is not zero.” [SOURCE:

ISO 8015:2011, 5.10.1]
NOTE 3 There are no defaults for electromagnetic profiles.
4.3 General default settings

When specifying surface texture by the profile method the surface is the toleranced feature. Therefore,

the profile direction and the profile position are an integral part of the specification. Surface

imperfections and surface defects are part of the specified surface and shall be taken into account when

determining profile locations, if not otherwise stated.

The general default settings given in Table 1, independent of the specified parameter type, shall be

implemented.

NOTE Considering surface imperfections and surface defects as part of the specified surface is a change

from ISO 4288.

NOTE 2 The change of the default filter type for Rk, Rpk, Rvk, Rpkx, Rvkx, Rmrk1, Rmrk2, Rak1, Rak2, Rpq, Rmq and Rvq

leads to a better elimination of large-scale components and can generate slightly differing values of these parameters from

NOTE 4 For a circle, the radius shall also be included in the least square optimization and not held fixed to the nominal

value. The F-operator is applied to the evaluation length.
4.4 Default settings based on the specification
4.4.1 General rules

This subclause defines rules for the default settings based on the specification in addition to the general

default settings.

If several parameters are specified within one graphical symbol, the parameter in the first line shall be

used to select the default settings.

If more than one specification element is specified, the topmost specification element shall be used to

define the column for all non-explicitly specified default settings in Tables 2 to 6.

If a nesting index N not listed in Tables 2 to 6 is specified, a second specification element shall be

specified, for example the setting class Scn, to define the column for all other non-explicitly specified

settings.

If a nesting index N not listed in Tables 2 to 6 is specified, the maximum sampling distance d shall be

ISO/FDIS 21920-3:2021(E)

If there is a contradiction between the default profile direction and the default measuring length, the

profile direction shall be respected first.
NOTE See examples in B.1 to B.8.
4.4.2 Default settings based on Nic or Scn

For all R-parameters, except for Ra, Rq, Rz, Rp, Rv, Rzx and Rt, one of the following specifications shall

be given in the drawing indication:
— the profile L-filter nesting index N ; or
— the setting class Scn.

For all W-parameters one of the following specifications shall be given in the drawing indication:

— the profile S-filter nesting index N ; or
— the setting class Scn.

For all P-parameters, except for Pt, one of the following specifications shall be given in the drawing

indication:
— the profile S-filter nesting index N ; or
— the setting class Scn.

This defines the default settings according to the corresponding column in Table 2, which defines the

non-explicitly specified settings.

5 Default attribute values for parameters from ISO 21920-2
5.1 General

Attribute values are necessary for the calculation of some parameters. The default attribute values are

given in 5.2 to 5.5.

For parameters with necessary attribute values not listed in 5.2 to 5.5, the attribute values shall be

given in the specification.
NOTE Attributes are given in parenthesis following the parameter name.
5.2 Default attribute values for height parameters and spatial parameters

The default attribute values for height parameters and spatial parameters are given in Table 7.
