    To Any One With a Suggestion,

    I have designed in AutoCad a 24' double ender. I have drawn the lines and sections etc.... I am interested in building a model of said design and am interested in having the stations CNC cut. I am thinking 1":1' scale. This is a small job, no doubt. Any suggestions as to where I can find such a service would be greatly appreciated.

    Many Thanks in Advance

    Call around your area, look at cabinet shops and sign shops that have CNC routers. Most will work from .dxf files and give you a quote.

    What he said.

    Just a quick search for folks in your area returned 3 results. A promising one is Benson Wood Products in Cottage Grove, WI.

    If you want to pay freight from Norfolk, VA I can do it.:D

    Also, for small parts manufacturing try EdgeCAM, if you got Autodesk Inventor than you could use them in tandem. I personally can attest to its effectiveness.
