RFQ for prototyping and production
A product I have been developing is now in the physical prototyping phase. I need a shop that can machine all of the parts for 1 assembly for prototype testing plus have the ability to do production runs of 100 assemblies worth of parts per run. Most of material is 6061, some 304L, some mild steel. Mill and lathe oeprations. Coatings and finishing resource or abilities are a plus as anodizing and other coatings of the production parts will be required.
I have the entire assembly in Solidworks 2011 and need a shop that can take the parts files, I can provide tolerances as requested.
Because this is in the prototyping phase I need a shop that will work with me as such. The ultimate goal is to have you produce all of the production parts and deliver them to my shop where we do the assembly work and final testing of the assembly. Funding is in place for large scale production runs and as always the sooner I can get product into my customers hands the better. Lets get to work!
I'd like to quote your parts. I sent you a private message with contact info.
Thanks, and regards.
I would like to quote your parts. Please send files to email@example.com.
Hello William. I also would like to have a look at what you have. Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Are these parts bigger'n'a bread box?
Think Snow Eh!
Does Steve Allen need to make them? Can I?

I just sent you a PM with further contact information.
Have a great day!
I'd also be interested in quoting those parts. Please send the files to Benderservices@gmail.com
Are you still in need of a source for this assembly? If you could send the files, or at least the overall size and material of each component, we would be interested.
Email is: email@example.com
quote for assembly
I can quote solidworks assemblies, if it can be sent as solidworks 2006 or igs file or stp file.

I just traveled back in time. Can I quote your parts?
Who got this job? I seen all the files, quoted it and received a really generic email stating all the numbers looked good and wanted to know lead times. I responded and with a question asking "lead time at what quantity level?" I added some more pleasantries and never got a responce. Like the guy fell of the face of the earth. Anyone heard from him?
Probably one of those guys who didn't have a realistic expectation of the cost of manufacturing.

All I can say is that there must be thousands of bootleg copies of Solidworks. I can't count the number of RFQs I see on these forums where the person who made the drawing did not even bother to edit the default Solidworks drawing template to add their own name where it says "This drawing is the property of <insert name here>...".
I received the job and he repeated for 2 different unit prototypes. Bill is a great customer. Havent heard from him in a while. I think he is still making adjustments.
I'm glad one of the PM members got that job. When I didnt get any responce, I figured we all were just his quoting house. Some times it's hard to tell these days. Thanks for the update dstryr!
