About Project

This tee rail has a streamlined shape that fits well with a human hand and was produced with a 4-axis CNC milling machine.
Where there is no design/functional benefit from using 3D printing – internal channels, complex geometry, reduced weight, consolidated components, etc. – the subtractive speed of CNC machining will generally make it a more attractive and cost-effective option in terms of ‘like-for-like’ low-volume part production.

Solution

  • Step 1: The CAD model was examined and transformed into a CNC-compatible format with the software AutoCAD.
  • Step 2: A most suitable type of CNC machine was chosen according to the complexity of the product design and the cost of the workpiece.
  • Step 3: Certain operations were configured and the G-codes were input on the machine. The workpiece was mounted on the machine as well.
  • Step 4: The workpiece got shaped and the holes were drilled automatically. It would be inspected during and after the machining process for quality assurance.
