Designing for Mill Manufacturing requires intelligent design intent. This course, SOLIDWORKS: Design for Mill Manufacturing, begins by discussing some basic machining techniques. First, you'll learn considerations to make before designing a part. Next, you will work through a machined bracket...
There are so many important considerations to make when designing parts that will be casted and ultimately machined. This course, Fusion 360 - Casted Metal Design, covers fundamental Fusion 360 tools and processes that are required to efficiently design casted metal parts, as well as best...
Do you design unique parts and tool, but face challenges making the physical part? In this course, SOLIDWORKS - Preparing Designs for Sand Casting, you'll explore sand casting and final machining processes. Having a better understanding of these manufacturing methods will help you create better...
Moving from concept to manufacturing in any design process can be a daunting task requiring the input of many specialists and taking advantage of the strengths of various software applications. The more people there are on a project the more time consuming the whole process becomes, requiring...
Communicating effectively is critical for manufacturing parts and products overseas. You must define your product explicitly from every angle, every material, every finish, every tolerance. Anywhere that you leave a product under defined, is a place that you're likely to get something other...
Design and manufacturing technology is changing quickly - barriers that once hindered the progress of ideas, due to cost and time, are being eliminated. New developments in design software and additive manufacturing are making it easier and more affordable to turn ideas into reality. This...
Having the knowledge to create in CAD is an essential need for engineers and designers. In this course, Onshape Essentials: Designing Molded and Casted Parts, you'll learn some very good key features in Onshape. First, you'll explore the feature patterns. Next, you'll learn about the features...
Part of the challenge of injection molding is less about the function of the part and more about the geometry requirements to make a part mold-able. In this course, Fusion 360 – Design for Injection Molding, you'll learn the basics of Injection Molded design, and the tools in Fusion 360 needed...
Using SOLIDWORKS, we will look at the features and geometry we use to create effective tapered and thin part designs. We will start with a house plan and show how we can use draft while extruding to create a complex roof design. Then, starting with a chunky, solid block style prototype we will...
This course, Fusion 360: Getting Started with CAM, will take users from the very basics of 2.5 and 3 axis parts, through the process of a CAM setup, creating toolpaths, and generating the G-code. You will create a basic part while learning about design intent as well as design for manufacture...
