According to Jim Lewis, eMachineShop President, "Rapid Prototyping is our most significant advance to date. Rapid Prototyping ("RP") adds a quick option for our customers to reduce time-to-market, test new ideas and do short runs. Our free CAD software, combined with low cost RP and quick turn, creates an unbeatable combination for accelerating product development and delivering finished goods to customers."
"Along with our conventional processes of milling, turning, laser, waterjet and others," Mr. Lewis added. "RP puts eMachineShop even further into the technological lead of online manufacturing. Numerous improvements to our new software will also be appreciated by our customers ranging from the do-it-yourselfer to space agencies," he said.
In addition to Rapid Prototyping, the latest version of eMachineShop free design software features more options of combining machine functions, ability to do multi-part Steel-Rule-Die-Blanking designs, more ways to specify tolerances, more flexibility in designing injection molded and cast parts, more interface conveniences, more ways to design turned parts, export to STL and enhanced speed.
eMachineShop is an innovative web site offering the easiest, most cost-effective way to turn ideas into real 3D parts at both prototype and production quantities. The web site offers a wide range of easy-to-understand tips and advice so that both engineers and non-engineers are able to successfully design and order custom parts.
Jim Lewis explained, "Whether designing a new part or rerunning an existing one, getting custom parts was time consuming and costly until now. You had to buy and learn expensive and complex CAD software, make technical drawings, locate a machining facility, coordinate a compatible file format, discuss the design with an accomplished machinist, sift through price quotations and write complex purchase orders -- often paying thousands of dollars more than necessary while adding weeks of delay."
In contrast, users download eMachineShop's free CAD software. Then, during the design phase, eMachineShop's automated machining expert analyses the shape, material and finish to keep the user informed of any needed design changes, making it easy for engineers and non-technical people to design parts quickly and easily.
A 3D preview spins the object around on the user's screen to visualize the final part before ordering. A single clicks gets an instant price. From the customer's screen to the customer's door, eMachineShop takes care of everything with total convenience and efficiency.
