Message No. 22660, Started by jensenbreck on 11/13/17

Hello all,

I have a small part that is design for automotive engine use and I want a prototype part made to insure proper fit before I order a bunch of parts machined from aluminum. But according to the Analyzer one part made from plastic will cost more than aluminum. This can't be correct, can it?

Thanks
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

In low volume a plastic 3D printer is your best bet.
