Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Determine and describe the value of 3D printing
  • Determine and describe the value of CNC machining
  • Assess when to use 3D printing versus when to use CNC machining
  • Calculate costs associated with 3D printing and CNC machining

Description

Description

In this class, we discuss why designers, engineers, and manufacturers need to think of 3D printing and computer numerical control (CNC) machining technologies as an and rather than an or proposition. Today more and more designers and engineers understand the value of 3D printing. However, CNC is often a faster, more cost-effective solution for rapid and functional prototyping.
