A downloadable guide, The Big 6 Do's and Don'ts When Designing Molded Parts, addresses fundamental design considerations that will let engineers get precisely what they need from toolmakers and molders without paying more. The guide pinpoints oversights and errors in design and part specifications that, if executed, would increase costs, extend schedules, or reduce output. Topics include undercuts in sidewalls, draft, sharp corners, and more. The guide is the first in a planned Series of "Parts Smarts" booklets for engineers.
