VisualCAM & New Product Development!

VisualCAM & New Product DevelopmentIn previous blog posts and case studies, we’ve highlighted how designers are incorporating toolpath cutter step over cusp height as design features.  Here is a recap from our KickStarter on product design sent to us from VisualCAM user Shawn White, CEO of TRANSFIXION DESIGN, a product development and manufacturing company located in Matthews, NC.
This part is a sculpted 6061 aluminum stand for iPad®, Galaxy®, Kindle® and iPhone® devices. By design, the 3 Axis Parallel Finishing operation uses a 3/8” ball mill and a 20% step over to achieve the sculpted look and feel that Shawn was looking for.
