Innovation in manufacturing is the key to economic renewal. Technology and design will be our competitive edge, not low cost labor.
Design for Manufacturing Forum connects the worlds of digital startups and industrial manufacturing, bridged by CAD/CAM software, lean manufacturing and new approaches to product design and development.
The term Design for Manufacturing has been around for at least two decades, referring to the process to design a product to make it efficient to manufacture – the variation Design for Manufacturability is also used.
There is a lot of opportunity for technology startups in this process. Design for Manufacturing is a gateway to manufacturing for designers, software engineers, marketeers and anyone who now spends their time in the virtual world.
It is time for a manufacturing startup revolution.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
