As a student you need to do the leg work to figure this out. Reason being... as you look into different methods of manufacture... you will become more familiar with each method. You are gaining exposure to the wonderful world of manufacturing!!
Let me see if I can give you some food for thought?
There are more things to consider other than just "how do I make this?" Like the saying goes... There's always more than one way to skin a cat. The real trick is figuring out how to make it profitably...!
You need to always consider things like quantities... If there's only a one piece requirement then you might just bang one out by machining it from a piece of bar? Or you might utilize current equipment in house despite not being the ultimate choice for equipment if there are only a few pieces. If there are jillions of them then equipment costs and durability of that equipment needs to be considered, as well as duration of any contract for these parts.
Consider part tolerances... Might require high precision or possibly it's an anchor and can be made with eyes closed.
Consider cost of material used to produce via different methods. Or what will portion of finished part cost is material producing one way vs. another?
Consider tooling costs... Carbide dies vs. cutters etc.
Consider cycle times... 1 and hr. vs. 1 every ten seconds?
Consider competition... Somebody else out there is either already making this part or will be quoting it as well.
Consider complimentary equipment or other ancillary cost that might be involved with your options. Different methods of manufacture will entail different materials to produce... like cut off or polishing or lubricants etc.
In the wonderful world of academia many of these things can be ignored. It's all just play money and available by the truckloads... But in the real world... these sorts of things are what makes the difference between getting an order or not... and making a buck or not.
Do your google searches and use words like "forge" ... "forming" ... "turning" ... "spinning" ... "stamping" etc. and all sorts of potential methods will crop up.
Good luck and enjoy the ride!!
