SANCHEZ R., Claudia Marcela  and  CORTES R., Carlos Julio. Concepts of design for manufacturing (DFM) of lost wax parts. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.3, pp.49-60. ISSN 0120-5609.

Integrated Product Design uses several methodologies, Design for Manufacturing is one of them. DFM pretends to facilitate manufacturing of parts by means of analysis of geometries, values and tolerances, and is used in first design stages in order to decrease the product cost. The design for manufacturing was studied as well as design rules to propose a methodology for Design for Investment Casting.

Keywords : design for manufacturing; lost wax process (investment casting).
