In this video, overview design considerations and definitions of repeatability, efficiency, quality, and tolerances. Explore software used and recommended.
- [Instructor] Let's go a little deeper…into our understanding of production.…I will now define important core concepts…that inform the overall design considerations…for mold making in this course.…These terms are repeatability,…efficiency, quality, and tolerances.…I'll define them in terms of manufacturing,…with a few examples to illustrate my point.…I'll be using SOLIDWORKS throughout this course…to help illustrate the concept under discussion,…but I must state that my goal is to create models…that can be opened in any number of CAD programs…for a three-dimensional understanding of my topics.…
The first concept that we'll be going over is repeatability.…Repeatability means production of the same part…over and over again in a circular cycle,…the opposite of unique artisanal goods.…A repeatable manufacturing process…copies the initial shape again and again,…using the same geometry for each copy.…If it is not repeatable, the design must be updated.…The technical definition of efficiency…is the ratio of the use of work…
