    Default Are machine drawings necessary? How to get them?

    Hello All,

    I have a intricate part that I created in Rhino. It's to the exact size/dimensions that I want it. I wanted to receive quotes on what it would cost to machine the part, and a company asked for machine drawings that specify the measurements, finishing etc. I have the IGS or IGES file of the part, can he not use this file to obtain that data? What is the best way to obtain machine drawings? I know Rhino can provide dimensions based on what points of the object I select. Are these sufficient enough for an estimate?

    Thanks for your help.

    It depends what CAD program he has. he may not have one, or one that doesn't accept or import IGES files. I have one guy that does EDM work for me and i have to make part drawings with full dimensions for him every time.
