Rework in Product Engineering- An Infographic

Engineering organization in almost all industries are dealing with costly and time-consuming design changes occurring at later stages of product development. As per our estimates at least 30%-50% of design time and effort is spent on “rework” though these Engineering Changes. Though some design changes are unavoidable and arise due to disruptive factors outside the […]

How to reduce time required to 3D print your model

A major cost component in 3D printing is machine time. Parts with features requiring support structure require more time for the machine to print the part. This increases the cost of printing the part. Features like undercuts, negative drafts, overhang faces require support structure along the filling direction. Hence the part should be designed in […]
