Can I make the product if I only have the part sample at hand?
If for simple shells product, yes, we can do 3D scanning to get the file for prototyping and samples, or using vacuum casting for the products copy. This will depend on the part detail, size and parts status provide. But it will be better to get the 3D file to avoid the functional and dimension different.

what kind of design will be CNC machined friendly and cheaper?
For functional prototype, if has no impact on the assembly, radius on edge, on root of rib and corners will be bigger the faster.
