    I used to be a cost estimator. It's inefficient to call up each vendor and get quotes for a good price. What do you guys do?

    Are you referring to the "actual" CAD drawings or the overall cutting process?

    I would like to know the average price rate on both. I have ended up on both ends of the spectrum in this aspect, either I look like a highway robber or i'm practically giving it away.. I would like to find a happy medium but each job is so much different than the last.
