Electronic Models (Solids)

We can work with many types of solid models. While solids are often helpful for CNC programming, low-volume feature reference information, or general viewing of a complex part, we still require tolerancing to manufacture a component. So, please make sure solid model files are always accompanied by a fully toleranced 2 dimensional drawing, preferably in .pdf format.
