Our Insight video series will help you master digital manufacturing. Every Friday we’ll post a new video – each one giving you a deeper Insight into how to design better parts. We’ll cover specific topics such as choosing the right 3D printing material, optimising your design for CNC machining, surface finishes for moulded parts, and much more besides.


Below is a recap of our latest Insight videos, which you can also view alongside all of our previous videos on our website. Never want to miss an Insight video? Subscribe here!


Insight: DFMA – Design for Manufacture Analysis

Automated design for manufacturability or DFM analysis, software that can quickly provide feedback on the manufacturability of your parts and can also highlight potential issues or areas of the design detail that could benefit from simple changes.



Insight: Measure Up For Success – Detailed Measurement and Inspection Reporting

Measurement and inspection services are offered by most suppliers on injection moulded parts. These services range from part approval quality documentation to detailed dimensional reports. The speed in which you receive these depends on part complexity and production volume.

This week’s video discusses what to ask when talking to your supplier about their report offerings – and things you can do to support the process with a well-designed part.

Insight: Injection Moulding Cosmetics – Cosmetic Defects and How To Avoid Them

As with any manufacturing process, injection moulding comes with its own set of design guidelines, and design engineers who understand these best practices will increase their chances of developing structurally sound and cosmetically appealing parts and products.



Insight: DMLS & CNC Machining – Working Together

CNC machining and DMLS are both incredibly useful processes. By utilising both, it can allow for greater flexibility in part design and can even save time and money. This video will help you understand the shared strengths and inherent differences between both processes, and how to best use them to your advantage.
