DFM for CNC Machining: Minimize the Challenges with Designing for CNC Machining

In bringing a new product to market, it is a progressive process to consider and then optimize mechanical designs for manufacturability. Early on, it’s critical to learn the fundamentals of what can and cannot be manufactured. But there’s another step in the learning process: what can be done, but probably shouldn’t be done. “High effort” […]

Tolerance Stack Ups 501: Going Beyond Mechanical Fit and Into Predictive Design

Tolerance Stack-Ups are a vital component of any engineer’s workflow, to ensure successful mechanical design fit. But successful engineers in demanding industries such as medical, aerospace, and automotive, need to rely on data to do more than this. They need data to improve real design outcomes beyond “guess and check” — to improve design understanding […]

DFM for CNC Master Class: How to Minimize Risk in Manufacturing Design

In this webinar, we introduce you to the concept of design for least effort CNC machining. This concept will take you beyond the fundamentals of DFM (design for manufacturability), which is about do’s and don’t, and help you uplevel your DFM skills to design parts that are cheaper, faster, and less risky to manufacture.  You’ll […]

Industry-First Transparency in Product Development

As it stands today, many of our customers manage NPD and NPI processes in the dark with spreadsheets, take calls with overseas suppliers at 2am, or send teams of people across the globe to inspect manufacturing processes and quality controls. Those approaches were costly, nerve-wracking, and with this current pandemic, hardly even possible. Not anymore. […]
