Good morning all. We may need to get 4 to 5 relatively small SLS DuraForm parts metal coated in chrome, nickel, brass or something like that. We've gotten a quote of ~ $4000 to coat ~$450-worth of prototypes, which seems high to me. Any suggestions as to where we could get this done more economically?
As an aside, I thought the RP&M show at Rosemont was pretty cool. It was good to meet many of our customers, competitors and fellow-RPML'rs. The booth that I found most interesting was Stratasys' because of its nifty samples. Although the RP/RM technologies have not fulfilled the lofty hopes of many (i.e. production parts produced at Kinkos for little dinero), the quality of materials and parts gets a little better each year across the board. The only thing that really sucked at the show was the $7.25 mini-soda/hotdog /nachos meal deal at the concession stand.
Take it easy and thanks in advance for any helpful responses.
