    Default how do you calculate time?

    Hi,

    I would like to ask you what method, software or other way do you use to calculate your cnc machining time for part. How do you calculate your price to your customer? I started to work with CNC machines about one year ago and now i get more and more orders and this takes a lot of time for me to make proposals for my customers. Not every proposal ends with order. Till now i used to make program for any of my request and calculate machining time in this way but as i said this takes a lot of time. Maybe there is somebody who can share his experience with me. I would be very grateful for any help.

    Default Re: how do you calculate time?

    It is 3 axis cnc router or 5 axis cnc router? To calculate machining time of cnc router, it is needed to make a programing file. If you use 5 axis cnc router, it is convenient to make programing file with 3D scanner.
