    Hey all,

    We currently design sheet metal parts to be outsourced for fab and use many different thicknesses, materials and sizes. Our operation has begun to scale very quickly and we’re rapidly bringing in new vendors. But with new vendors comes a new set of K-factors. Our standard is to supply our current vendors with DXF files of each part to expedite their process. But moving to new vendors these may not be the most useful, especially since we typically require tight tolerances.

    Does anyone else have experience with handling K-Factors and multiple vendors? Curious how others are handling this.
