This is because the job changes from 2D to 3D which requires setting up an additional or different machine. You will find that adding additional 3D features, after the first one, has a much smaller effect on price.

"I've never used any CAD software before, but I downloaded and installed the software. 15 minutes later, the custom metal piece I needed for a necklace pendant. The software's price appraisal was near instant, and it gave me tips which helped me reduce the price by 100%. It's a great program!"
