Subtractive manufacturing (CNC machining) is a machining process in which machines carve a solid piece of raw material into a desired 3D geometrical shape and size using a controlled material removal process. This process relies heavily upon the use of machine tools and power and hand tools.
The application of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) matches the need of the modern industry. CNC uses computers to control the movement and operation of mills, lathes, and other cutting machines. However, subtractive manufacturing is broadly adapted to manufacture metal products, wood, plastic, ceramic, and composites materials.
Historically, the subtractive machining process was manual. Processes such as woodcarving, forging, and filling of metals, once done by hand, have undergone rapid advancements over the past century and now broadly incorporate technology that makes them more efficient and precise.
The 3DEXPERIENCE Make platform is an online on-demand manufacturing platform. It allows you to connect to our entire network of CNC machining service throughout Europe and the United States in just a few clicks. Our CNC machining services are all professionals in the field of industrial manufacturing. For online CNC machining services, our manufacturing partners can handle mock-up projects, functional or aesthetic prototypes or small series. For large series, please contact us directly through the contact button.
In practice, all you have to do is log in to 3DEXPERIENCE Make and create an account. Then you can upload your part with your CAD file. Then you can select the desired features for your project, the type of process (milling, turning, EDM), the material, the tolerance and the finish.
At this point, some of our partners will offer you instant pricing. You can also choose to request quotes from several of them.
You will be able to collaborate with the partners on the platform through a chat, video call and 3D annotation system.
Once you agree, you pay online by credit card or if you represent a company by Purchase Order (PO).
Once you have received the part and it suits you, you return to the platform to validate it and we pay the supplier at that time.
The 3DEXPERIENCE Make on-demand manufacturing platform can be visited freely online on our website (https://make.3dexperience.3ds.com) or via your software (SOLIDWORKS, CATIA, Draftsight or eDrawing). You do not need to be a Dassault Systèmes or 3DEXPERIENCE Platform customer, just create a free account.
When you receive quotes in CNC machining, and the price is acceptable to you. You will have to validate and pay online. There is no commission or hidden fees, the price displayed will be the final price (excluding any customs fees or VAT if your order is from a foreign supplier).
Reducing the cost of CNC machined parts will involve several techniques, whether it is at the time of conceptualization, choice of characteristics (tolerance, materials...), post-production, or shipping.

1. During the design phase, don't hesitate to regularly look at the price of your CNC machined part with instant quoting systems like 3DEXPERIENCE Make.
2. Choosing the right material
3. Choose the right machine
In the case of an online CNC machining service, your supplier will choose the machine for you. Nevertheless, as you have understood, the design has a strong impact on the time
3DEXPERIENCE Make is a marketplace, it allows you to get in touch with on-demand manufacturing service providers. The site acts as an intermediary. We have selected our suppliers to display only professionals in the on-demand manufacturing industry with industrial machines. We also verify all the information provided by these companies.
When you pay online, we put your money in an escrow account. This means that until the supplier delivers the part, it is impossible for them to access the money. This money will only be released once you have approved the order by changing the status to DELIVERED, or two weeks after the supplier has sent the part (SHIPPED status).
This gives you plenty of time to check that the part is in line with your request. If there is a dispute, contact us as soon as possible so that we can get in touch with you and the supplier in question.
3DEXPERIENCE Make is part of the Dassault Systèmes group, which develops brands such as SOLIDWORKS, CATIA, DELMIA, etc. Our company has therefore been working for years with major players in the manufacturing industry. We have chosen our online CNC machining services mainly from among our long-standing customers.
With each new arrival, a dedicated team verifies the quality of the manufacturing company on demand.
Once approved by the teams, they can join our network of online CNC machining services.
CNC machining remains a process whose characteristics are perfect for the manufacture of series, small series, or metal parts.
It can also in some specific cases, appear more interesting than 3D printing for the realization of functional or aesthetic prototypes, or mockups. In particular, if the part is relatively large and it is not possible to do this in a 3D printer.
CNC machining is much more developed than 3D printing and therefore it is easier to find manufacturers around the world.
The 3DEXPERIENCE Make platform is a marketplace. As an intermediary, we will help you get in touch with online CNC machining services. Each of them has their own machines, their own skills and therefore their own tolerances.
When you make a request, you will be asked what tolerances you want for your project. This way, you will only see suppliers who can offer this type of tolerance.
Then, I advise you to indicate directly to the selected suppliers the tolerance you want.
