    Xometry isn't for everyone. Some of us make good money on it though. They are about a third of my yearly revenue, and we did almost 350k with them last year. Not every job is a winner, and I do some lower paying jobs for them when asked. At the end of the year we averaged 22% above standard shop rate. Just over 200 jobs and maintain a score in the mid 90s. Unlike as9100d, we are not iso, itar, or as certified. We are a shop of 4 guys with 4 mills and a lathe. We are able to meet a lot of their deadlines even with plating requirements. Yes it requires being very flexible, and a willingness to work overtime. I tend to avoid any job with weird materials or complicated coatings. We have about 10 jobs that are repeats every other month from them. I've developed positive working relationships with their project managers and I've never had to wait for an answer on anything from them.

    Obviously there are a large number of shops doing their work profitably. Again, they allow me to reach customers and diversify in ways I could never do on my own.

    So my interest is piqued. What is the deal with being a supplier/vendor for Xometry? Do you pay an up-front fee? Or pay monthly? I know they take a (big) cut of the job, but what other costs are involved?

    How do they pay - direct deposit to your bank account? When, 30 days after acceptance?

    I'm curious to know the details.

    No fee. You need to have calibrated tools. You sign up and make a sample part. I have a bunch of sample parts made Xometry-Who is doing it?Xometry-Who is doing it? they pay you $135 for the sample part.

    No fees no monthly anything. You see parts, price is set, deadline is set, you either accept or decline. That easy

    We are on par to do $1,000,000 in work for a 14 month period.

    They pay direct deposit to your bank account two days a month, it should work out to about 30 days +/- a week. I often have to submit invoices multiple time before they get in a system I think runs through a piss poor 3rd party called SAP Concur. I get paid on time about 50% of the time.

    I email all invoices directly out of quickbooks. I have never in 200 jobs had to resend an invoice or ask for payment. I get paid on the 15th and 30th of each month, and have never had an invoice go over 40 days.

    We used that a couple jobs ago for our 'expense reports'. Although, since I was a 'special case' (having an AMEX card even though I was a lowly machinist and all) the bosses secretary did mine for me.

    At first we had to save all our receipts (gas, food, hotel, etc) and turn them in every month, but slowly almost every place was linked with AMEX and no more receipts, that was a nice change for the better!

    1 part number, stainless 316, 10 pcs, terrible design and geometry, will need 3d work to generate tapered radii. Really if designed correctly, should have been 1 part, making two halves.

    1 part number, 6061, 2pcs, simple plate with 6 chamfered holes

    1 part number, 6061, 4pcs, simple part, 3 setups, dovetail, 1/32 radius max in corners.

    1 part number, 6061, 4pcs, simple part, 2-3 setups

    1 part number, 6061, 4pcs, simple part, 2 setups

    1 part number, 6061, 2pcs, minor complexity, 4-6 setups, dovetail

    $2924.05

    If you had a 4th, a few of the parts you could eliminate setups down to two or three depending on what tooling you have available.

    If you had material on hand, and guys dedicated to the work, I could see making money, not what I would call profitable work, but you might make some money at it. That stainless part would be killer though. It has a dovetailed section with square sides on both sides, as designed, you would need to sinker EDM this?

    My accounting software is no longer updated for my operating system so I have to paste text files and then save as PDFs, it won't send e-mail anymore. Trying to hold off replacing it till I am forced to do an operating system upgrade. I have Quicken, never again.

    We sent invoices automatically via shoptech and they have never been late on a payment via normal business operations.

    J001ca35 looks like a fun one for $2500.

    I'd take it if we weren't already booked for the rest of the month. Even with the short least time.

    How would do the bore in PN 0144FDD? You have an EDM in-house?

    Regards.

    I just got an offer for exclusive and repeat work, but I rejected it and asked for an extra 6 days lead time. We will see what happens, the lead time was 20 days, I wanted 26 as my calendar is booked because of short work days, due to cold weather. Takes a while to heat up the uninsulated shop.

    Ya, that doesn't sound good at all. $182 per part, including all machining (time, setup, programming), material, purchasing, tools, shipping.... doesn't leave much to put in the wallet unless all the parts are 1/2 programming and 1/2 hour setup and cutting, and material is cheap, and tools are on hand and "paid" for from another job!

    edit: saw it was 26 pcs, not 16- even worse_ $112/part!
