    The hardest part of this piece is drilling small holes and that's why it would cost 15000 RM.

    I did a quick search and no Goldstein engineering and fabrication was found...What is your budget, for liability purposes what is this used for? What company are you with, do you have a d&b number?

    Why are you asking for a quote in the additive section when it talks about being made from aluminum extrusions?

    Googling it now

    First thing that pops up


    Additive Manufacturing | Tristate Machinery



    I wonder how much it would cost 3d in aluminum?

    Wow, that's a big part for metals AM. I wouldn't even want to consider that route, if I were you. Maybe in 20 years... but not with today's machines.

    You could get the "basket" piece polymer printed via jetting, but it wouldn't be functional, of course.

    If there were polymer matrix composite printers out there that fit your part, that would be the way to go. Without splitting it into two shorter pieces, I'm not sure it's possible at he moment.

    My suggestions:
    - hydroforming, to get tubular aluminum with the contours you want
    -carbon composites via traditional methods.

    For shits and giggles, you should try getting a quote from these guys, but I'm not sure they'd use AM to make your bat:

    I think 20000 reichmarchs is closer to the mark.

    now a proper bat is made from ash or maple with very specific dimensions
    set down in the rule book

    Patent pending?

    I've never seen a patent with dimensions on it.

    Google "Goldenstein Engineering and Fabrication." Their website shows they have a CNC-retrofit Kent mill and another mill with enough capacity to make this part. If this were my invention I'd just mill a mold and lay it up in two halves from carbon-fiber prepreg. Or even plain old fiberglass to test the concept, saving a couple wheelbarrow loads of Reichsmarks.
