        i used to be pretty good with it. its tricky to get to grips with but you have to rememebr to design the part as a machine wuld make it. Not used it for a while though

          hard to tell without a little bit of an idea of what you need. it has been a while since I have used it also.

            I think Giuliano uses this pretty good.

                I'd be careful about the quality of the parts that are made when you send them your designs. I've heard some really bad stuff about their work.

                  Can you elaborate? I just had a small piece made without any problems - but it was not a very complicated item.

                    I remember seeing an online tour of how someone made a car computer (I think it was actually for a WRX) and he had sent the CAD designs to emachine shop but had to scrap the finished product that they sent him back. I remember being pretty bummed about this because I thought emachine shop was such a great idea (and it is).

                    I have not had any personal experience with them though, and I remember seeing this a while ago (sorry I can't find the link right now). So maybe they've sorted out whatever issues they might have been experiencing. Anyways, didn't mean to slander them or anything, as I have no right to. Don't let me rain on your parade. Sorry about that, might have jumped the gun a little.

                        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.
