Words of Advice: Obstacles to Solid Data Hand-off

In a recent survey, we asked the following question: What are the biggest obstacles you face in getting your design to the fabricator? Here are a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

  1. Perfectionist engineering staff.
  2. Fabricators going back on their capabilities after receiving manufacturing files.
  3. Getting the fabricator to follow the design to the dot.
  4. Consistent output from different designers.
  5. There are too many customer/engineer changes during the design process.
