How Does CNC Plastic Machining a Prototype Work?
- It all starts by transferring your CAD or other 3D file to Additive Manufacturing, where our engineers will evaluate the design, and determine the extent of the CNC plastic machining prototype process. From here our engineers will work with you to finalize the design, making it possible for us to give you an accurate production price quote.
- Once your design has been finalized and accepted, the next step is for us to send a price quote to you via your shopping cart. You may receive an email offering you the opportunity to make any last-minute tweaks to the design. From here, your design will be put into our manufacturing queue.
- The way in which we keep our lead times to a bare minimum is by being able to upload your CAD/CAM drawings directly into our CNC milling machines. From this point forward, nothing else will be done to the information until your prototype is complete. At this point, our quality control inspectors will thoroughly examine the part made using our CNC plastic machining prototype process for quality and accuracy.
- The finished part is then sent to you for final approval. Once you approve the prototype, the same CAD/CAM drawings will be used for the production run after any required changes (if needed) have been made. This process also helps us to keep turnaround times to a minimum and your development and manufacturing costs within budget.
