Online machine shops

Well I thought I would try and venture in uncharted territory for me by having my brother draw up a few paintball parts in autocad. All the guys in my family are engineers, so I put them to work. I thought not only would I explore some of the machine shops they use there company, but I thought I've read about people using some "online machine shops"? Since I've never done anything like this, I wanted it to be not only productive but a learning process. I have hopes that I might be able to find a way to make things through others.

Has anyone utilized a online machine shop?

Emachineshop.com has their own software that they use to auto generate quotes. It can't import anything else. So, to get a quote from them will require it to be modeled again.

Also check out mfg.com

I use mfg.com on a semi-regular basis. You can get great results or ****ty results depending on a huge number of factors. ALWAYS READ THE REVIEWS!!!
