I have the sketches done for the Economy Frame Rails. Sketches are accurate and completely dimensioned. You should have no problem drafting from the sketches. I just need someone who can draft them and then email me the .dxf and .igs files. They are pretty simple-no contours so they shouldn't take more than an hour. Post up here or PM me your email address and I will send you the scans that I made. The sooner I get them drawn, the sooner I can get accurate quotes on production.

Seems you have that portion taken care of then. Offer up services if you need anything further. Would be a nice change over floorplans and elevations for a bit.

****. An hour? That's about 10 minutes worth if you're milking the job.

Took longer to layout the dimensioned prints than it did to model the actual part. Ordinate dimensions saved the day.

That was my guess, not his time. He turned them around promptly. Can't beat the price, either! And, I do have fully dimensioned drawings as well.

Is anyone interested in doing a quick FEA analysis with the FM ones?
