You will see two production speed options with every CAD file you upload to fit your budget and deadlines: Expedite and Standard
What does Expedite mean?
Expedite is the fastest production speed and delivery date option which includes an expedite fee. Your parts are made by our US Partner Network.
What does Standard mean?
Standard is the base Xometry price and lead time offering which means that Standard provides a price and lead time that does not include an expedite fee for shorter lead times or a price reduction and longer lead times and/or overseas manufacturing. Your parts are made by our US Partner Network. We are working to further improve pricing and shorten lead times in this option.
When I click on production speed, why do all of my parts change to that production speed?
Production speed is an order-level selection. In other words, if you choose Expedite, all of your parts in your quote will be expedited.
What shipping speed do you assume for each production option?
We assume 1-day shipping for Expedited orders and 2-day shipping for Standard orders. You can always change your shipping method on the checkout page.
Why is Expedite disabled in some cases?
In some cases, we cannot make parts any faster than our Standard option. Therefore, we do not offer an expedite option.
Why can the Expedite price match the Standard price?
In some cases, we cannot make parts any faster than our Standard option. Therefore, we do not charge extra to give you the fastest possible lead time.
What will happen to my existing quotes that are Expedited?
All existing quotes that have been expedited will remain expedited.
