CAD Software Speeds Up Process of Designing Custom Parts

Melody Lee

Using CAD software helps engineers, product developers, and designers to produce custom mechanical parts. Users of eMachineShop's free software get expert analysis, pricing, feedback, and ordering information.

During the design process, a machining expert inspects the product's shape, material, and finish. This inspection keeps the user informed of any machining setbacks. A 3-D preview provides a visual of the final parts before an order is placed. Users can also get instant design feedback and price quotes for design scenarios to optimize cost. 

"Whether you are prototyping a new design or replacing an existing part, making custom-machined parts is normally time-consuming and costly," says eMachineShop president James Lewis. "[This] is a novel solution that offers the easiest, most cost-effective way to turn ideas into real 3-D parts."
