DFM for CNC Master Class: How to Optimize DFM for Complex Mechanical Designs

Wednesday December 9, 2020,  10am PST / 1pm EST

Thank you for registering! You should receive a confirmation email with your unique login URL. Don’t forget to add the event to your calendar!

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:

  • When design parameters transition into the maximum manufacturing effort region
  • Techniques for reducing effort even at the edge of manufacturability
  • When to transition from CNC machining to other manufacturing processes

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

DFM for CNC Master Class: How Design Requirements Drive CNC Manufacturability

In this webinar, we explore how to optimize higher complexity designs for manufacturability, where effort cannot be completely minimized. We will also explore the sources of manufacturing effort and key techniques for reducing relative effort for parts that are faster, more economic, and less risky to produce.  You’ll walk away knowing: How effort scales for […]

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 […]
