    New way to get custom parts

    I found this website and basically you do the drafting and they build the part. there are some sample pricing and it is not too bad. It is where I will be getting my stuff. Going to try it tonight hopefully.

    Does this mean I'm going to have to sign up for that CAD software class? lol

    What exactly were you wanting to have made?

    I have some other projects at work that I need some parts made for. But really you could do anything. I'm thinking about a rear exit exhaust piece like the one r&d has. I think they will be cheaper than r&d. intercooler mounting brackets. you could have anything made.

    I use autocad everyday so I'm good with it.

    One of the tricks with using them (for the average guy) is to make sure the parts will work even if your drawing is off a bit. Otherwise, multiple one offs (may) have to be made and checked.

    this sounds like it is a good idea, however, alot of parts could easily be "engineered" wrong and i'm sure that the customer would be eating the cost if it didnt work or fit properly. there are alot of small details that can be over looked when designing something! i'm not saying its a bad idea, just saying there is a good chance of having a $500 billet thingy hanging in your garage for looks!!

    the thing is with them.... you don't see a break in the pricing until you start ordering in quantity..... i have played with that site and its could for visualizing something but unless you are having multiples made it is easier to buy something already in production
