The World's First ONLINE Machine Shop

The first and leading machine shop designed from the start for the Internet, eMachineShop's mission is to provide easy, convenient and low-cost fabrication of custom parts via the web. We achieve our mission by fully leveraging the web, software, and state-of-the-art machining technologies.

eMachineShop pioneered online machining. We have made it more convenient and easier than ever for both engineers and non-engineers to make custom parts. You download the easy-to-use free eMachineShop 3D CAD software and draw your part. When you're happy with your design, you simply click for instant pricing and ordering.

eMachineShop Makes it Easy

With eMachineShop you can eaily produce parts for existing products, design and make new products, fabricate replacement parts, implement new ideas and inventions and make any kind of custom part for any purpose.

What makes us Different from traditional machine shops?

Using a conventional machine shop to make custom fabricated parts is a cumbersome process involving an often long sequence of time-consuming visits, phone calls or emails.

Unique Software

Unlike the common expensive complex CAD software packages that often require training courses to use, the eMachineShop CAD software is easy to learn, offers powerful features, and is offered free. Software commands are included for creating designs, evaluating designs, getting automated price quotations and ordering. Automatic expert analysis tools built into the software gives instant manufacturing feedback and advice, avoiding the need for expensive engineering support, saving even more time and money.

Short & long runs welcome

Because of the cumbersome process with conventional shops, many shops avoid customers seeking short runs. And even for long runs customers are discouraged from doing too many what-if price quotations. At eMachineShop ordering one is just as easy and convenient as 1,000,000.

Streamlined Process

eMachineShop avoids cumbersome steps and streamlines the entire custom fabrication process from your screen to delivery at your door. Whether you are making one bracket for a computer chassis, 100 levers for a home-built airplane kit, or producing parts for 100,000 cell phones, eMachineShop will be a key factor in your success.
