SOLIDWORKS: Design for Mill Manufacturing
Design for Mill Manufacturing will introduce you to concepts that promote intelligent design intent. Learning the fundamentals of milling requirements and intelligent design will make your parts ready for the world! Software Required: SOLIDWORKS.
What you'll learn
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 design from the ground up focusing on good modeling practices, intelligent features, and DFM considerations. Finally, you will discover the DFMXpress product as well as receive a basic overview of the Costing and Sustainability Utilities included. When you're finished with this course, you'll be ready to start designing products for Mill Manufacturing. Software Required: SOLIDWORKS.
