Scope of this project: We aimed at creating 3 products, that we designed, through a choice of 4 different machines. I chose to use the Makerbot Replicator, the SRM-20, and the Versalaser 4.60.
What is DFM: DFM means designing for manufacturing. This basically means that the designer/engineer of the products design has to know what the part's manufacturing constraints are. How tall, wide and deep it can be is the just the start of the DFM process and can lead to more in depth questions which mostly revolve around the capabilities of the machines being used.
