Special Materials

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:
  1. Choose Job | Material.
  2. Select the material closest to the desired material – this allows for the pricing mechanism to give an approximate price for your job.
  3. Check Request special material.
  4. Enter a description of the desired material. It might save time to enter a suggested vendor if you have one.
  5. 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.
