Quote Check List. Have You:
Exported 3D CAD files as either STEP, IGS, or PARASOLID?
Communicated the quantity of each part required?
Specified the material and grade?
Specified the finish if necessary?
Clearly shown tapped holes and tolerances on a PDF?
3D CAD FILE TYPES
Please export your 3D CAD files to STEP, IGS or PARASOLID format.
Unfortunately we can only accept STL files for 3D printing projects. STEP is always preferred, even for 3D Printing.
We cannot accept OBJ files as they do not correct geometric data for manufacturing.
We highly recommend sending separate PDF Engineering Drawings for each part.
Annotated screenshots can sometimes be accepted.
Please indicate any threaded holes, critical dimensions and tolerances.
Please communicate material and finishing requirements (if applicable).
FILE NAMING AND REVISIONS
Clear, easy to understand naming of parts is highly important because it reduces the chance of mistakes, especially if parts are revised. We would never suggest naming files like a description. We recommend following these guidelines:
BAD: Bracket For Underside PROTO Version 2 NEW 2020
This style of naming derives from ISO standards, and can be broken down like this:
YCN = Your Company Name
PRN = Project Name,
001 = Part number, 001, 002, 003…
00 = Revision Number, 00, 01, 02…
HOW TO COMMUNICATE YOUR NEEDS
To communicate quantity, materials and finishes it is easiest to follow the format below:
3x GIM-PRO-001-00 – Stainless Steel 316 – As machined
5x GIM-PRO-002-01 – Al6061 – Sand Blasted and Anodised Clear
If you have many parts, it can be easier to create a BOM to communicate your needs and upload it when requesting a quote.
