New Version of Instant Quoting for On-Demand ManufacturingOctober 29, 2018
On-demand-manufacturing platform Xometry has released a new version of its Xometry Instant Quoting Engine, which provides instant quotes on 3D printing, sheetmetal fabrication, CNC machining and urethane casting. Key features in the new version include a redesigned summary view to help users quickly review their quotes, a part-level modification page that captures all changes in real time, and an always-visible 3D viewer with instant design feedback displayed directly on the model.
The redesigned summary view helps users quickly review the process, material, finish and other manufacturing requirements for each part in their quotes. If any requirement needs modification, users can use the modify-part button to make the change. Also, in the part-level modification page, users can use the right side of the modification screen to specify all part requirements, and can scroll down to see all of their manufacturing options in one place. In addition, instant design feedback enables users to display manufacturability feedback instantly and directly on their models. They also can upload drawings to help identify manufacturing requirements such as threads, tolerances and critical dimensions.
