    This BLows Goats!!!!

    I thought I'd found how to work this out but apparently not. Now they are telling me about all this stuff that the mill machine cant do and that I can't mix machines on the same part!!! I'm this close to telling e machinshop to kiss my ***. All the files are attached it consist of the case, the lid to the case and the clear acrilic inlay to the lid (called lettersandlogo). I can't seem to get them to work just they way I want but what bothers me more is I can't get an accurate price rate. Im thinking of going with dc waterjet if I cant get this resolved

    I've had them do a couple small runs for me. The software is terrible, and overall the process is pretty limiting. I got the best results from modeling parts in Solidworks then transfering the drawings manually into emachineshop.

    You are correct, in that they will only machine the part on one machine. For example, they will not partially machine something on the lathe, then finish it on the milling machine.

    Also, I thought the prices were high for very low volume and you have no way to prototype anything.

    I would recommend just going to a local machine shop with good drawings. For small runs, sometimes you can find a friendly apprentice who will do it at a low cost.
