The Xometry Partner Network is a program that allows manufacturers to view and accept real CNC milling, turning, sheet metal fabrication, injection molding, and Additive Manufacturing / 3D printing jobs to grow and diversify their business.
What is the Partner Network?
The Xometry Partner Network is a program that allows manufacturers to view and accept real Milling, Turning, Sheet Metal Fabrication, and Additive Manufacturing jobs when they have capacity.
Once a Partner is approved, real jobs appear on their job board that match with their manufacturing capabilities. If a Partner has capacity, they can choose to accept the job. If not, they can reject it. There is no bidding, and no time spent working on RFQ’s.
Partner Network Benefits
Why should I join the Xometry Partner Network?
For many Partners, Xometry serves as a sales/marketing engine. The platform provides real jobs that match with your manufacturing capabilities.
There is no bidding, and no time spent working on RFQ’s. Additionally, by offering you jobs from across the country, Xometry provides opportunities for jobs you would not likely see on your own. A machine shop in Texas, for example, is able to easily access jobs coming from Maine or California.
You are then able to choose jobs that are a good fit for your current capacity. Finally, we pay you within 20 business days of completing a job. No more net 30, 60 or 90.
- Expand and Diversify - Receive real job opportunities from a diverse range of industries, making parts that are profitable.
- Save Time - Spend less time on quoting and client management thanks to our Instant Quoting and dedicated support.
- Improve Your Business - Streamline your business and improve cash flow by filling capacity and ordering materials all in one place.
Partner Network Fees, Requirements, & Work
What does it cost to join the Xometry Partner Network?
The Xometry Partner Network is free for partners to join. There are no transaction or service fees and there are no commitments to take any number of jobs per month.
What type of work can I expect to receive from Xometry?
Xometry sends you jobs that match with your shop’s capabilities (as listed in your Xometry profile). The majority of jobs we send to our partners are CNC work from across the country. These jobs are typically low quantity, aluminum prototypes, but we also have a significant amount of steel, copper, brass, and plastic parts too.
Xometry’s algorithm will determine who has the right equipment and experience, and then it will sub-select a group of partners. The partners are notified that a new job is available, and the first to accept gets the job.
You could see work from small start-ups to large Fortune 100 companies. Xometry customers include General Electric, MIT Lincoln Laboratory, NASA and the United States Army, and many more.
Does Xometry require certifications to join the Partner Network?
No, we don't require any certifications to join the Xometry Partner Network, but having them opens up more opportunities. If you do not have any certifications at the time of registering, mark the "I don't have certifications" box under the "Certifications" tab of your shop profile.
Is there an opportunity for production work?
Most of the jobs are in prototype quantities: 1-20 units of a particular line item. That said, some of those jobs could potentially move into production at a later date.
In that event, if you run the first round of prototypes, we would offer you priority viewing of the job as it moves into production.
