ISS has a very simple, streamlined, and easy to understand quote system. Plus, we've included some money saving tips. Here's how the quote system works:
If you need an NDA and or IP agreement prior to starting we'll gladly furnish you with one and we'll sign it.
Please submit any drawings and information you have. We accept everything from CAD files to hand drawings. Your hand drawings don't have to be an artistic masterpiece, just readily understood by a person. All files you have can be uploaded on the ISS website chat or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have pictures/hand drawings we do prefer you include a measuring device with the pictures to help with assessing scale and dimensions.
After your project/part data is received it can take up to 24 hours to get a quote. ISS does use machines for quotation assistance but we always have one engineer look it over prior to approval.
If you happen to add more work, parts, or information later, the quote and lead time can be adjust according. Part/project prices can be reduced this way as well.
Quote Tip: if you order enough to qualify as a "bulk purchase" for parts we will reduce your quote accordingly. Bulk purchases can range from 50-1000 parts per order.
If you have already had work done on your design we do offer pro-rated discounts. So please let us know what stage of completion you are at.
Quote Tip: 3D printing prices reduces over time. 15% off the original price for the second part, 25% off the third part. After that the price usually remains the same.
Quote Tip: Here's the most important tip: we will let you know if there's issues with your design. We'll do our best to offer recommendations if you want to know what other options might work better!
Finally, all quotes are regulated by our "Seller Terms". So please feel at liberty to reach out to us by chat here on the ISS website!
