Laser and WaterJet Parts Cutting
Laser and Water Jet cutting estimates
I solicited cutting estimates from 3 sources.
Pololu can't cut all the parts. Their maximum thickness is 3/16" and they can't cut aluminum. Their cost for doing the 1/8" parts in polycarbonate was $27. I ordered those, they were more flexible than I expected. Not the ideal stiffness. Dale mentioned that this could be an advantage...they're certainly light.
DCwaterjet took several days to get their estimate to me after a couple of reminders, their cost was very close to eMachineshop at around $200 - $300 using waterjet on aluminum.
