What is a 2D Part?
2D parts are significantly more cost-effective to manufacture than 3D parts, so understanding what makes them different is essential.
A basic example of a 2D part is a washer, which is a disc with a hole cut through it. A washer is considered 2D because it has no features on its sides and is modeled using two or fewer thicknesses.
eMachineShop Made Sheet Parts
Laser cutting is often used to produce 2D parts from sheet metal. A laser beam vaporizes a cut path to achieve the desired shape. Great for prototypes and short runs.
Die-Sink and Wire EDM machines create parts by using recurring sparks to remove material. Recommended for intricate designs requiring sharp inside corners and high dimensional accuracy.
CNC Plasma Cutters use a high-velocity stream of ionized gas to cut parts out of sheet metal. Excellent for producing 2D parts when working with thick metal sheets.
