This work presents a Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Cost Implication of a Simple Laboratory Metal Extrusion Machine. The concept is to have a laboratory metal extrusion that is capable of demonstrating metal extrusion processes and their applications. In the process of design and drawing, a solid work tool is used in the production of the parts and components of the machine. The machine is designed in accordance with design considerations that enable sourcing materials locally that fulfilled the design analysis and calculations. The materials are so selected to meet up with the required properties for components and parts. The cost estimate of the machine elements is done to serve as a guide in the actualization of the machine fabrication. The availability of this equipment will enhance academic research on metal extrusion and training of students on Simple extrusion processes.
