Atlanta, GA, October 28, 2008 - (Quickparts) - Quickparts (http://www.quickparts.com), one of North America's largest providers of custom designed parts, from rapid prototyping to production parts, today announced the release of the new "MyQuote3D" Instant Quoting STL viewer.
MyQuote3D allows the user full 3D access to .STL files for viewing purposes without requiring any other CAD program. MyQuote3D is a desktop application that also enables users to access Quickparts’ patented QuickQuote system, which streamlines the quoting process by analyzing 3D CAD data and producing instant online binding quotes for custom manufactured parts ranging from rapid prototypes to production parts. This technology also eliminates the typical wait time for traditional RFQ's. MyQuote3D is available to engineers and buyers who want and need a seamless process for ordering custom-designed parts.
MyQuote3D is fully loaded with a variety of innovative new features, including the ability to detect thin walls, bad edges and flipped triangles, view and quote both individual parts and assemblies, and add text annotations to a file.
Users of MyQuote3D will be able to load their CAD model sets from their computer, select a manufacturing process, quantity, and materials, then click on "Create Quote." MyQuote3D will then instantly produce and display a binding quote for the manufacturing of the user's parts. To place an order with Quickparts the user clicks on "Buy" and the customer's CAD data and project specifications are automatically uploaded for secure delivery to Quickparts.

With the addition of MyQuote3D, we have streamlined the process by giving users a seamless transition between viewing, quoting and purchasing SLA, SLS, FDM and PolyJet parts which we believe makes the process much easier.”
