    STL Price Quoting

    Whoops, I meant DXF Price Quoting

    Hi all, I've been meticulously putting together a DXF for my HS748 Control Column, and I'm trying to find the most inexpensive service to get two of them manufactured. The problem is, there are a lot of services and I have no idea which one will best suit my budget. Is there anywhere I can upload the DXF and get a set of prices to compare? There's a website that lets you do it with 3d printing services (But $750 for the set is a little much), so I'd imaging that something similar must exist for CNC milling.

    By the way, which of these designs do you think would work better? I have one that's a set of stacked slices, which I would fill in with spackle then sand the **** out of, and the other design is made from interlocked slices, which is more rounded out of the box and probably stronger, but will be harder to assemble and fill the gaps of. Here are some screenshots of the latter:

    Where are you with this?

    Do you have an STL model?

    Re: STL Price Quoting

    A. I made a mistake in the thread title, the file is a DXF (read the first sentence)
    B. I ended up going the 3d printed route, see my other thread
