Evaluating the Cost of a Turned Part

Cylindrical parts require turning for manufacture. In this procedure, you run Costing to determine the cost of manufacturing a turned part.

  1. Open install_dir\samples\whatsnew\costing\turned.sldprt.
    turned_part.gif

    A cylindrical part appears.

  2. Click Costing Tool_Costing_Tools.gif (Tools toolbar) or Tools > Costing.
  3. In the Costing Task Pane:
    1. Under Machining Template, select machiningtemplate_default(englishstandard).
    2. Under Material, for Class select Steel, and for Name select Plain Carbon Steel.
  4. Under Stock Body, in Type, select Cylinder.
  5. Under Estimated Cost Per Part, click Click to Update.

    The Costing tool estimates the manufacturing cost using the material information in the part.

    The Costing Task Pane displays the Estimated Cost Per Part.

    The CostingManager in the FeatureManager design tree displays the recognized operations required to manufacture the part.

    Operation Description
    Setup FM_folder.gif There are four setup operations for this part. Two of the operations are required for all turned parts. When manufacturing a turned part, one end of the part is in the chuck, while the other end is machined. The portion of the part inside the chuck is not machinable until the part is flipped.
    Setup Operation 1 setup_operation_folder.gif Contains the setup operation to manufacture Slot 1 Costing_Setup_Cost.gif.
    Setup Operation 2 setup_operation_folder.gif Contains the setup operation to manufacture Hole 1 Costing_Setup_Cost.gif.
    Setup Operation 3 setup_operation_folder.gif Contains the setup operations needed to manufacture the part:

    OD Groove 1 Costing_Setup_Cost.gif

    Outer diameter groove. Material is removed from the outside faces. The ratio of the length (L) of the material to remove to the depth (D) of the material to remove is L:D or L/D.

    ID Groove 1 Costing_Setup_Cost.gif

    Inner diameter groove. Material is removed from the outside faces. The ratio of the length (L) of the material to remove to the depth (D) of the material to remove is L:D or L/D.

    OD Turn 2 Costing_Setup_Cost.gif

    Outer diameter turn. Material is removed from outside faces for one side of the part.

    Setup Operation 4 setup_operation_folder.gif Contains additional setup operations required to manufacture the part:

    ID Turn 1 Costing_Setup_Cost.gif

    Inner diameter turn. Material is removed from outside faces.

    OD Turn 1 Costing_Setup_Cost.gif

    Outer diameter turn. Material is removed from outside faces for the other side of the part.

    Mill Operations FM_folder.gif

    Slot 1 FM_slot_costing.gif

    Material is removed from the face.

    Turn Operations FM_folder.gif

    ID Groove 1 fm_id_groove_costing.gif

    OD Groove 1 fm_od_groove_costing.gif

    OD Turn 1 fm_od_turn_costing.gif

    ID Turn 1 fm_id_turn_costing.gif

    OD Turn 2 fm_od_turn_costing.gif

    Hole Operations FM_folder.gif

    Hole 1 FM_hole.png

    Material is drilled from the face and then tapped.

  6. Close the part:
    1. Close the Costing Task Pane.
    2. Click File > Save As.
    3. In the Save As dialog box, click Save without Costing data and click Save.
