What Tolerances Can You Expect When Manufacturing Prototypes And Low-Volume Production?

What Tolerances Can You Expect When Manufacturing Prototypes And Low-Volume Production?

When you supply your 2D and 3D drawings for a quotation on a new project, you must specify the dimensions for critical areas on your parts, as well as the tolerance that you require. Very tight tolerances are neither practical nor desirable in most instances, so let’s look at the tolerances that we specify at Star Rapid for most projects, why we do that and what it means for your parts.

Gordon Styles offers detailed observations about the current trends in additive manufacturing in this guest post in TCT magazine. Learn more about what it takes to design for 3D metal printing and how the industry is creating exciting new applications for this technology as it transitions to a mainstream production solution, not only for prototyping but also volume manufacturing.
