Updated: Jun 1
The Lathe Parts like Pins, Pistons, Valves or Shafts, If the size of radius corners are small like 0.1 or 0.05 as the upper picture, then there will be limited choices of cutting tools which makes machining time longer or hinder to choose more reasonable cutting tools, that leads to product costs increase.
It is effective to design the radius size larger as the bottom picture that enable us to have more variety of choice of cutting tool, that could reduce both tooling costs and machining costs.
