The Engineering Guide to Lightweighting

Lightweighting means "doing more, with less" and has benefits beyond just material reduction.

A lighter design can improve product performance, reduce manufacturing costs, lessen energy consumption and emissions, or make a product more ergonomic and user-friendly.

We created this guide to support you in applying lightweighting to your design process in an efficient, streamlined, and repeatable way.
