Your masterclass in product design and development, each packed with useful tips to help save you time and money.

Copper is a vital material in engineering and its role, particularly in industries such as automotive, is certainly growing. Until recently if you wanted a copper part the only option was to have it CNC machined, but now there is another option available. For more complex geometries, DMLS can be a more suitable method of creating parts.

This week's video looks at copper and aims to help you understand when it's best to turn to CNC machining or 3D printing.
