Atlanta, GA – March 29, 2011 – Quickparts®, a 3D Systems company (NASDAQ: TDSC), announced today the release of even further enhanced quoting capabilities through QuickCutCNC™. This new rapid CNC machining service, launched by custom manufacturing leader Quickparts®, now has the ability to automatically identify and quote threaded holes as part of the online, interactive process for all custom CNC machining projects.
After submitting a design for quotation, QuickCutCNC™ customers now receive an emailed link to access their interactive quote online. If the submitted designs include holes, the QuickCutCNC™ system will automatically populate the quote with a list of available thread options based on the size of the hole, allowing the customer to then instantly select (or decline) threading for each individual hole. Orders can still easily be placed directly through the online interactive quote.
“Threaded holes are common and have historically required additional communication and input from the customer, delaying the process of procuring CNC Machined parts online,” said Todd Hellman, Business Manager for QuickCutCNC™. “By automatically detecting and offering threaded holes as part of our online interactive quoting, we are providing yet another technology that further simplifies and streamlines the process for the customer.”
