Design for Machining on the CNC LATHE

A: Sharp Inside Corners.  Normal CNC Lathe Tools have a radius on the nose. If possible, specify, at minimum, a .015" Inside Corner Radius   

B: Long Thin Sections  Long thin sections cause chatter and should be avoided.  

C: Call out "Center OK"  Longer parts may need an outboard support. Calling out "Center OK" gives the machinist the greenlight to add a hole in the end of the part  

B: Radius ends of Keyways  Radiused Keyways are more cost effective.
