We’ve been around long enough to know that every project and every client is unique. Some projects are based on a finalized design and are ready for production while others are still in their infancy. Both are welcome at 508.

High-Resolution printing resins:

  • Standard opaque (Goto for form and fit)
  • Rigid (Stiffness and precision)
  • Tough (Impact resistance)
  • Durable (low friction and wear)
  • Flexible (Soft and rubber-like)
  • High-temp (Resistant up to 289°C)

FDM 3D printing:

  • PLA (Standard form and fit, large color choice range)
  • ABS (Tough, more heat resistant than PLA, excellent color options)
  • PET
  • PETG (Similar to ABS)
  • Nylon (Very tough and durable prints that are ready for action)
  • Specialty filled filaments (Metals, Wood fiber, etc)
  • Reinforced filaments (NylonX)
  • Water-soluble support material

Cutting/Engraving:

  • Mat board
  • Rubber
  • Wood
  • Acrylic plastic
  • Delrin (acetal)
  • Cork
  • Fleece
  • Leather
  • PU foam

Engraving/Etching/Marking:

  • Marble
  • Painted brass
  • Plastics
  • Stainless steel (marking only)
  • Bare aluminum (marking only)
  • Anodized aluminum
  • Cotton
  • Denim
  • Glass

From the moment we see your drawing we’ll be thinking through the steps needed to make it a reality. This includes considering the tools and processes that will be needed to meet your specifications with special attention paid to difficult features and tight tolerances. With so many variables, it’s impossible to come up with an accurate price until they’re all taken into account.

金沙最新手机版下载Every quote is the sum of the same components:

  • Design time
  • Setup time
  • Material cost
  • Tooling cost
  • Cycle time
  • Total machine time
  • Tolerances specified
  • Final processing (coatings and finishes, marking/labelling, packaging, delivery)

金沙最新手机版下载It’s not uncommon to see a 20% drop in cost when ordering two parts as opposed to a single one. This is because quite a bit of work goes into making that first part. All the drawings, toolpaths, tool setup, workholding setup, stock sourcing, and refinement only need to be done once regardless of the number of parts produced. Since the subsequent part price is based mostly on the machining time, these costs can be spread out across all the parts in the production run.

金沙最新手机版下载Anything from 3D solid models to hand-drawn designs on a napkin will get us started, but having your part in one of the following formats allows us to import it directly.

If you’re designing in Fusion360, we can even collaborate on the design through the cloud.

  • Autodesk Alias (*.wire)
  • AutoCAD DWG Files (*.dwg)
  • Autodesk Fusion 360 Archive Files (*.f3d)
  • Autodesk Fusion 360 Toolpath Archive Files (*.cam360)
  • Autodesk Inventor Files (*.ipt, *.iam)
  • CATIA V5 Files (*.CATProduct, *.CATPart)
  • DXF Files (*.dxf)
  • FBX (*.fbx)
  • IGES (*ige, *iges, *igs)
  • NX (*prt)
  • OBJ (*.obj)
  • Parasolid Binary Files (*.x_b)
  • Parasolid Text Files (*.x_t)
  • Pro/ENGINEER and Creo Parametric Files (*.asm, *.prt)
  • Pro/ENGINEER Granite Files (*.g)
  • Pro/ENGINEER Neutral Files(*.neu)
  • Rhino Files (*.3dm)
  • SAT/SMT Files (*.sab, *.sat, *.smb, *.smt)
  • SolidWorks Files (*.prt, *.asm, *.sldprt, *.sldasm)
  • STEP Files (*.ste, *.step, *.stp)
  • STL Files (*.stl)
  • SketchUp Files (*.skp)

金沙最新手机版下载Certainly! We’re happy to source materials, but bringing your own is never a problem. There are a few things to note:

  • Machining setups are easiest when we have extra material for workholding. Making parts from stock that is nearly the same dimensions is much more difficult.
  • Bring extra. Every part goes through a development phase during which setups, workholding, tools, and programs are refined. We do our best to minimize waste, but making a single part in a difficult-to-machine material frequently requires a few iterations to get everything dialed in.

Shop visits and/or meetings at outside locations are scheduled by appointment only. While we’re happy to meet with you, drop-ins are discouraged as our work requires focus.
