Xometry is a model-based company but there are times when a drawing may supersede what is derived from the CAD model. We put together a matrix to help you understand which file and which information we use as the source of truth to manufacture your parts. Unless you specify a requirement in the notes field of the Xometry Instant Quoting Engine℠ all requirements will be derived from either the CAD file, the drawing, or the quote itself.
Let's take a look at a few hypothetical scenarios.
You may have specified Aluminum 6061 on your quote but your drawing may have specified 304 Stainless Steel. Our partners will make your part per the Quote material (Al 6061) and not the material in the Drawing (304 SS) per this matrix.
You may have specified +/- .004"; 4 locations on your quote but your drawing may have specified +/-.003"; 3 locations. Our partners will make your part per the Drawing tolerances (+/-.003"; 3 locations) and not the tolerance in the Quote (+/- .004"; 4 locations) per this matrix.
Don't forget to double-check your model, quote, and drawing before placing your order.
