CNC prototyping cost

When you need prototype manufacturing services, the first thing to consider is the CNC prototyping cost, the second is whether the designed parts can reduce the cost as much as possible without affecting the original intention. Again, that material is more suitable for prototype design, and whether there are more substitutable materials. These problems will need to be solved before mass production.

In this article, you will learn all the knowledge needed to optimize design for CNC machining parts: from machinability design rules to cost reduction techniques, from material selection guidelines to surface treatment suggestions. First of all, there are some limitations in CNC machining. Let’s first understand those factors that limit CNC machining. The limitation of CNC machining is the natural result of cutting process

Anodizing-Aluminum
Anodizing Aluminum

When your aluminum prototype or parts need aesthetic design, anodizing aluminum is one of the first choices. If you need functional aluminum parts that are subject to corrosion or wear, such as aircraft parts or consumer goods, this finishing service will meet your needs. Anodized aluminum also has a visual appeal, especially because you can add color to parts while maintaining the metallic luster.
