Knowing where to begin when designing an injection-molded part can be a daunting task. In this webinar we will walk you through what you need to know at the beginning of your design process including understanding key design considerations, avoiding cosmetic defects and improving manufacturability with automated analysis.
We will discuss how material selection is very important in product design and how designing appropriate wall thickness and draft can play a huge factor in the manufacturability of your parts. You will also learn guidelines to follow that can reduce unsightly cosmetic or functionality concerns such as sink or warp.
All of these issues and more are highlighted in automated design for manufacturability (DFM) feedback provided by Proto Labs. You can obtain complete DFM analysis in the earliest stages of your design within a few hours of uploading a 3D CAD model. Don’t wait until production tooling before realizing you overlooked an extremely important design element that may require you to go back to the drawing board.
