Looking to Hire - Control panel driller/cutter
« on: November 05, 2019, 05:36:29 pm »
Hi guys,

I am designing the top of my 4 player control panel in SketchUp.   I am nervous to translate those dimensions to board and start drilling/cutting though.   I really want this is a clean as possible. Is there  service I can hire to take my sketchup file and cut it with a CnC machine. 

Maybe you all have some great tips on a say a service that will print it out to scale on paper that I can use as a pattern over my board?

I know a custom CnC cut design is a probably super expensive but I though I would ask.  In the end maybe you all have some tips to help prevent common mistakes.

Edit: I am in the US, on the east coast around D.C.

Thanks

It would be helpful if you told people what Country you are in.

There is no point in me saying about company a b & c in the UK if you are in America and do not want to pay for shipping.

Well never mind.   My confidence is building with this.   I believe I found a place to print out my sketchup plan to scale so I can effectively trace it.    My wife also got me a router as an early birthday gift.  So I will use scrap wood and make a jig from it.
