Part of a series on manufacturing for designers, this colorful illustrated guide to manufacturing processes is intended to provide designers with technical information on making materials and production decisions for prototyping. The work is divided into sections covering forming technologies, joining processes and finishes and each short chapter provides color photographs, technical illustrations and descriptions of an example project made using each manufacturing method. Processes include traditional arts such as lost wax casting and panel beating as well as modern techniques like composite lamination and direct metal laser sintering. Rob Thompson is a designer currently working for Nokia and the author of Manufacturing Processes for Design Professional.[Publisher Info]
