I'm facing this problem from a very long time. Let's say you founded a Patent/Design that fits perfectly for your needs. Now the problem is how can you realize that design? ( Design in Solidworks is ready but physically it's not ) How can you make from a block steel to the required machine? I know that has to happen using milling machine, lathe and other different types machines and processes but what's the exact procedure? How the marking has to be done? Any books or documentation about this? I know that this is vague but there should be something about this. Eg. Let's say a bearing block. How that has to be made ?
