New White Paper Explores How to Design Parts for Efficient CNC Machining
While a part’s design may meet all the right functional requirements, that doesn’t mean the design is suited for cost-effective CNC machining. In fact, some part features may be difficult or even impossible to machine as designed, which drives cost, quality and yield problems
In this white paper, we’ll present some real-world examples of how we fine-tune part design for efficient machining — a practice known as design for manufacturability (DFM). In particular, we will identify some key drivers of machining time and cost including tolerancing, surface finish, feature sizes and more.
