eMachineShop CAD Features
Part Template WizardAre you new to CAD? No problem! Use one of our design wizards and you won’t have to design from scratch. Our wizard library includes pre-drawn parts like flywheels, heatsinks, hex nuts, front panels and more. Just fill in your part specifications and the wizard will generate a modifiable drawing that you can order as is, or change.
Design Rules VerificationLike having an expert mechanical engineer at your side, eMachineShop CAD analyzes your design and provides warnings about impractical shapes, non-machinable features and incompatible materials. For example, you might be alerted for having a bend too close to an edge, a hole too deep and improper finish.
Money Saving TipseMachineShop CAD helps you minimize your production costs by guiding you to create shapes that are economical to machine. The eMachineShop website also offers numerous cost-reduction tips.
Instant PricingNo need to request and wait for price quotations. The eMachineShop CAD software generates a price in seconds by analyzing the shape, material, finish requirements, and machining operations necessary to manufacture your design – from quantity 1 to 100,000.
Convenient OrderingOrdering custom machined parts is quick and easy.
