I want to get manufacturing done for custom designed copper connector which I am planning use it in my home automation project. I created design of the connector in Freecad . I have exported the designs in PDF and published to local manufacturers.
To be frank I am from software background and it is first time I am creating designs and getting them manufactured.
After publishing my designs I got few replies. One of the reply asked me which production process to be followed extrusion or die casting.
I have no idea of this, tried google to search for any clues which would help me deciding .
After browsing few pages I got to know only one difference one of process involves melting the metal and other one include forcing cold metal to shape it in desired design.
Can someone please help me deciding.how to chose the production process which would suite my application?
