Design for manufacturing can be thought of as a vast optimization process. It can be applied early in the design process or used as a constraint layer at critical junctures. In some cases it is considered late in the design process resulting in an unfinished artifact or potential for an additional iteration.
Wallfacer Design can assist at any point on this continuum.
The resulting design may be assessed so that it is easier to manufacture, likely higher performance, less resource intensive, responsibly manufactured and more finished in appearance.
