31 Ways to Optimize Your Design for Precision Sheet Metal Fabrication

January 4, 2024

One of the biggest challenges engineers face when designing for precision sheet metal fabrication is a lack of detailed information about the manufacturing process. Going back and forth over a feature that makes sense on paper but is impractical to manufacture can be frustrating and time-consuming. After all, how were you supposed to know?

All Metals Fabricating is here to help.

Our guide contains 31 Design for Manufacturability (DFM) tips to help you optimize part designs for efficient manufacturing. We provide essential insider information about best practices—some you may already be familiar with, others you may not be.

Understanding DFM principles is a surefire way to set yourself up for success. When a design is optimized for manufacturing, you’ll enjoy shorter lead times, lower prices, and a seamless manufacturing experience.

AMF’s comprehensive guide bridges the gap between engineering ideas and manufacturing realities to make your precision sheet metal fabrication project a success.
