Base costs for Custom Molds utilizing the Do-it Blank Molds are: $230.00 for the Small Frame Blank Mold and $345.00 for the Large Frame Blank Mold. This cost will include: A Mold Design based on a CAD model that you will supply me and Machining the Blank Mold on a High Speed High Precision Vertical Machining Center.
You must be able to send me a Machinable CAD Model in order to receive the aforementioned pricing otherwise a Metrology and Product Design fee may be applied.
Metrology, Product Design, Hardware and Shipping are all extra costs. Metrology and Product Design will be estimated at a rate of $35.00 per hour then added to the base cost.
Additional Cost Examples:
Having to modify your existing design or CAD model. Sharp or uncuttable by rotary tool features in your design that will require EDM or Electrical Discharge Machining. A mold that requires additional components such as inserts to create special features such as "undercuts" in your part design that would not be moldable with a simple two plate mold design. Product Design Modeling and CAD Services related to product development are extra.
Product Design, Development and Modeling Rates:
Typical price range is $300.00-$1500.00 I can create a 3-D CAD Model for you from pictures and hand made models. This type of work is time consuming and difficult thus costly.
Please send me a simple NDA if you do not want your project to be displayed on the site and to remain confidential.
Any design work that I perform that is not paid for may be claimed and reproduced at my discretion.
I can accept payment via PayPal, Check or Cash. I will offer PayPal users a discount in order to offset the transaction fee.
After we agree upon a price I will design the mold and send you a proof. I will need a 50% down payment and a written approval before I start machining.
I will then manufacture the mold and send photos of the finished product.
The mold will be sent to you after payment has been received in full plus shipping costs
