Prototyping and Low-Volume Production
The Manufacturing Guides
A Thames & Hudson book
A new series for designers, engineers, architects, and students.
Designers are presented with a myriad of choices when preparing work for manufacture. Whether professionals or students, they must be thoroughly knowledgeable
about how their designs can be produced efficiently and effectively.
Here is one the first books in a new series built on the authority of Rob
Thompson’s highly acclaimed Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals. Clearly presented and highly detailed, each book is organized into
three easily referenced parts: forming, joining, and finishing. An explanation of
each manufacturing process provides a full technical description; analysis of typical
applications; and information on cost, speed, and environmental impact. Step-by-step case studies show a product or component being manufactured by a leading
international supplier. Photographs of geometry, detail, color, and surface finish
complete the practical information.
