DFM（Design For Manufacturability）
DFM is an acronym for “Design For Manufacturability”, which means we extensively study the 3D/CAD files you provide and make sure your design can be built as you intended. Then we will provide you a report for each part that summarizes the part information (size, weight, material, finish, color, etc.) and addresses any concerns regarding mould making or part design. Not only that, the DFM we provide also includes our recommendations on how to resolve any issues best to help you revise the design if necessary.
Five principles of DFM:
Process, design, material, environment, compliance/testing.
Advantages of DFM:
Bridge the information gap between manufacturers and designers;
Involve manufacturers in the CAD software development process;
Create a holistic approach to manufacturing.
The importance of DFM:
Cost reduction, and streamlined production scale-up.
