SheepDog,
Thanks for that link. I downloaded their software and my 1 hour overview was very impressive. Nice 3D rendering. It wouldn't open a .dxf file though. edit: It won't "open" a dxf, but it will 'Import' one. KEWL software. Very light running....

Have you used it?

I have drawn the part already...and I'm not about to do it over again so that they can plug it into their machine and whip out a part without any effort at all. They should get Autocad or something more common, rather than expect their customers to do their work for them.

Amen, brother, amen... Most shops accept autocad as is. Hell, even my $100 TurboCAD software opens autocad files and saves them as autocad files.

The flange is for a BMW...those Germans can't make anything in a standard size.

I have gotten a couple nice quotes for them. We went with a local place for the first batch because they were going to have them done quickly. It may be a while before we do more, and they likely will not be from the same place.

I'm in Knoxville.
