Sheet metal fabrication is a scalable production method to make functional parts at a low cost. These parts can require cutting, punching, bending, welding, inserts, and other finishing options. What are the best design practices for sheet metal? What can it do, and where is it limited? Join Xometry’s Greg Paulsen and special guest Callye Keen from K-Form on a 60-minute deep dive into all things sheet metal. Callye is an end-to-end expert in sheet metal; being both a designer as well as a professional manufacturer of sheet metal products.

Key Topics Include:
When to consider sheet metal for your project.
An in-depth look at the sheet metal fabrication process
The main cost drivers in sheet metal production
Best practices for sheet metal design to save time and headaches

FYI, the slides don't change in the video in time with the speaking. It does make it a little difficult to follow.

Here's a question: Say I were to buy some run of the mill 1050 mirror finish sheet in bulk like this: https://www.alibaba.com/showroom/mirror+finish+aluminum+sheet.html?fsb=y&IndexArea=product_en&CatId=&SearchText=mirror+finish+aluminum+sheet&isGalleryList=G

What options do we have to cut it with pristine edges that are visually flawless from at minimum 1 foot away? Would laser cutting would be detrimental to the color finish around the edges? Can we blank this up to those quality standards without additional finishing or edge work? Any recommendations for info on this?

Looking into DFM options for developing a range of luxury products by minimizing sheet metal processes. The variance in the types of coatings and cutting method 's effect on those coatings is surprisingly sparse to find information for. I'd assume if anyone had seen this before it would be someone like Callye, and it really clouds the cost estimation abilities of outsourcing like xometry. Of course I can get in touch, but looking into so many options to find what works best leads me to look for a knowledge source.
