CNC Machining: How to Reduce Costs and Accelerate Production


As one of the most common manufacturing processes for rapid prototyping and low-volume production, knowing how to design for CNC machining is an invaluable skill set for any product designer or engineer.

In this Webinar, we’ll share how to optimize your design for the subtractive manufacturing process and provide tips on how to accelerate production time and reduce part cost.

The presentation will include:

  • A comparison between CNC machining for prototyping and low-volume production
  • Guidelines for designing common part features, wall heights, and holes
  • How to select the proper material for your application
  • Methods for reducing machining costs
