Pre-Order Checklist

Before placing your order, carefully review your design and see the checklist below:

  1. Completeness: Communicate every important specification.
  2. Default Tolerances & Finishes: Review default specifications used unless otherwise specified.
  3. Tolerance & Allowance: Ensure your design has proper allowance and tolerance.
  4. Surface Finish: Consider adding a finish, such as powder coat, to protect surfaces and improve appearance.
  5. Fit: Make sure your parts fit together properly.
  6. Responsibility: Understand your responsibilities and eMachineShop’s responsibilities.
  7. Re-Orders: Re-ordered parts are counted as new orders and may vary from the original order. Use tolerances to specify allowable ranges.
  8. Changes: Repeat the above steps before ordering if you modify your design.
