    The AMA is now live! Thank you to Brian (@SeattleDMU) for joining us today and we are so excited to see what questions you have for him!

  • @SeattleDMU while we wait on some questions to come in, can you tell us a few things you learned about your first couple of jobs with Xometry?

    I actally learned of the Keyence XM thru the Xometyry Inspection Team.

    Its so simple to operate. I also figured that I needed to be able to have an Inspection report that quick and to the point.

    Also you can send the date to Xometry and they can read it on their end also.

    Also the next time I run that part im all ready to go..

    Again its a Capital Investment and at 55k was a great end of year deduction..

    Congrats on the UMC- 500

    Thats gonna do you very well.

    I did the same thing.

    5 axis along with CMM will do you well..

    55k is really not a bad price relative to other CMMs. Very compact footprint as well, which is a bonus for me since I have limited shop space at the moment. Thanks for the recommendation.

    And I am excited to get this machine making parts. It should be a good time.
