    I'll looking to get some shapes made. This is what they look like:


    I've got the cross section in PDF Click image for larger version. 

Name:	solid.pdf

    The cross section is constructed from a triangle like this:


    I guess I'd need a tolerance of about 0.1mm though I'd be interested to hear how tolerance affects price!

    Thanks for taking a look.

    I'm new to the forum so apologies if I'm getting anything wrong! Feel free to put me straight.

    Hi Steve,

    Price is also affected by quantity, what material and size.

    They look good though

    Damn, I knew Id' forgotten something.

    Size is anywhere between 40 and 50mm diameter. The PDF drawing is 40mm
    Quantity I'm not so sure about. If there's an economy of scale I might want to great loads done (to share with my fellow maths enthusiasts!) But I'd want at least 5, ideally 10 or more.

    Nice idea but how would you hold it to machine it!

    That would be telling.


    I'm working on a price, maybe you should make your location a bit more cryptic.

    That was my concern. Maybe it's not possible. Or it might need to be finishing some how. I don't know too much about this stuff so your thoughts are appreciated.

    Price sent by PM not difficult when you know how.
