In this webinar, we explore how to reduce manufacturing effort in the most complex designs applicable to industries such as medical devices, robotics, and aerospace. Here we will specify key risk mitigation strategies for high precision, high geometric complexity, and extreme part sizes (large and small).

You’ll walk away knowing:

  • Costs and benefit trade-offs at the edge of CNC manufacturability
  • How design decisions limit achievable tolerance 
  • Feature accessibility and machinability
  • Machining resolution and its limitation
  • Workholding strategies that save time and money

This webinar is part of the DFM for CNC Master Class Module 3, "Optimizing DFM for Complex Mechanical Designs"

How complex is your CNC part?

Complexity is a key consideration in CNC part manufacturing, since it’s among the biggest cost and lead time drivers – complex parts take more skill and time, after all.

But what makes a part complex? Part size, weight, non-standard features, tolerancing, wall thickness, surface curvature, and part finishing all factor into complexity.

We created a quiz that makes it easy to find out how complex your part is, and therefore how easy (or complex) it is to manufacture.
