When you start a project, you should know the cost of the CNC machining service needed. In short, the CNC machining cost is determined by the material, part size, machine type, design complexity, quantity, etc. Below are some typical machining costs in different conditions.
- 3-axis CNC Turning: 20$ per hour
- 3-axis CNC Milling: 20$ to 30$ per hour
- 4-axis or 5-axis CNC Milling: 35$ to 50$
- Aluminum 6061: $25 per block
- Stainless steel 304: $90 per block
- ABS: $17 per block
- Nylon 6: $30 per block
In addition, there are also additional costs that need to be included in the total cost, such as the surface treatment or post-processing cost when the part require special surface finishing service, and shipment cost, especially for a large amount of parts or large-sized products.
How do you know the CNC machining cost? We have a particular system to calculate the cost of machined parts quickly from a CAD file, if you want to know the price of components, you can go to our online quoting page, and upload your CAD drawing to get an instant CNC machining quote. Our quote is completely free and supports multiple formats, just simply drag your 3D file to the correct place and leave your custom requirements, and you can find how much your custom part cost with CNC service.
