You can select a material other than what is offered in the material list. For example,
you might want to order a part made of a specific alloy or a precious metal.
To request a special material:
- Choose Job | Material.
- Select the material closest to the desired material - this allows
for the pricing mechanism to give an approximate price for your job.
- Check Request special material.
- Enter a description of the desired material. It might save time to enter a suggested
vendor if you have one.
- Click OK.
Note: eMachineShop does not research cost, availability or sourcing of specific materials until an order is placed. If the specific material requested cannot be acquired a suitable substitute might be recommended, which you can approve or decline. Special materials are acquired as needed. See the text in Job | Material | Request Special Material for applicable terms.
