Whether your project consists of a one-off tube, low volume production or a complex weldment we require a few documents to review to prepare a quote for you. Providing these documents helps you manage the project/design and ensures that VR3 understands the scope of supply and can provide a cost-effective solution with outstanding quality and delivery.
Alternatively, we can produce these 3D CAD files and documents from sketches, drawings, marked up designs, etc. Design service costs are determined based on the quality of the information provided, quantity, complexity, bend features, etc.
Also, there is a nominal engineering fee for CNC programming and setup for manufacture from suitable design documents for a first-off tube set.
3D solid body CAD files of the tube(s) or tube structure, preferably Solidworks (.sldprt) OR export the model as a .stp file. This allows us to review the tube structure for compatibility with manufacturing and our process.
