Listing Detail Tabs

Product and Furniture Design by Rob Thompson. 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 to provide that information, built on the authority of Rob Thompson’s highly acclaimed Manufacturing Processes for Design Professionals. Clearly presented and highly detailed, the 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. Chapters are;
