REDEYE TOUR for Rapid Prototyping and Manufactured Parts
RedEye provides the tools to instantly quote rapid prototype models, manufactured parts and end-use parts used to replace the need for rapid prototype tooling. By installing our proprietary CAD STL File Analyzer you can obtain quotes from the security of your desktop without having to submit your files.
Getting a quote is a easy as:
1. Adding your STL files (from CAD export).
2. Click on "GET QUOTE" to get your initial estimate.
3. Refine your quote by selecting material type and quantities.
4. Click on "ORDER" to complete your transaction.
See this Getting Started demo to learn about the basics of adding files, generating a 3D Printing quote and ordering your parts.
"Remember Me", this log in screen will be bypassed in the future and

STL File Analyzer
Do you want to ensure the security of your files while quoting? Then install our STL File Analyzer.
Note: You may also see this STL File Analyzer referred to as a Browser Plug-in, ActiveX Control or RedEyeQuote.cab.
The STL File Analyzer analyzes your parts statistics and checks the CAD.stl file for unmatched edges and bad geometry. Once this is completed, the analyzer then sends the file statistics, not your part geometry, to the RedEye server for quoting. When you decide to order, the analyzer then compresses your STL file into a proprietary format and uploads it to our server. The STL File Analyzer allows you to obtain quotes through RedEye without anyone seeing your proprietary data. The plug-in works with Internet Explorer 4.0 or later.
Without the STL File Analyzer installed you can still get quotes for your CAD STL files. But they will have to be uploaded to our server in order for us to analyze the files and generate the quotation.
Note: Administrator privileges are required to complete the installation.
Ordering Rapid Prototypes or Manufactured Parts
Ordering parts with RedEye is as easy as one, two, three. Once you are satisfied with the quotation simply enter your payment and shipping information. Verify your order and submit to RedEye via a secure 128-bit encrypted transfer.
A project coordinator will follow up with you shortly after to provide shipping information.
Save 3D Print Quote
Quotes can be saved for a period of 30 days. You should save a quote if you need to get approval or plan on ordering at a later date. In order to save your quote your STL files will need to be uploaded via our secure 128-bit encrypted transfer to our server. All files are automatically removed after 30 days.
If a quote is not saved and you want to order
parts you will have to start the quoting process over from the beginning.
Saving a quote with the request option not only saves your quote but allows you to enter any special requests in a comments field. Upon saving, your files are uploaded to our server via a secure 128-bit encrypted transfer. And an e-mail is generated to RedEye indicating that there is a quote that needs to be looked at.
A project coordinator can then view the quotation and the special request. And if necessary download the STL files to analyze. The project coordinator has the ability to adjust pricing if the request or STL files warrants a change in pricing. The coordinator will then respond to your request with comments and the updated quote if changed.
You will receive this updated quote via e-mail. In the e-mail there is a link that will open up the quote on the RedEye site, where you can then continue to process the order.
Use this option when approval or review of a quotation is required. By checking "Authorize recipients to order ", the recipient will have the ability to open your quotation and continue to place the order. This function is ideal for organizations that require a Purchase Agent to authorize and place orders.
Note: When using the "Authorize" option, the recipient is only allowed limited access to the quotation. They only have the ability to review and order, not to change the quotation.
1. Part Size - Parts that are larger than the build envelope will
require manual quoting.
2. Specific Materials - Parts run in our PPSF material require extra analysis to determine the best way to build.
3. Large Quantities - We would like to assure the best pricing for large quantity orders as well as work with you to determine an appropriate shipping schedule.
You will still have the option to submit the files and quote to RedEye for manual quoting.
Printing can be done at almost any time during the quoting and ordering process. You can either print using your browser or look for the special print icon . Printing from this icon will not print the navigation menus from the RedEye site.
The Billing and Shipping addresses can also be edited during the
order process. When using the Forward Quote option, authorized recipients
will also have the ability to edit this information during the ordering process.
Click on Saved Quotes to access all saved quotes that have not expired. Quotes are saved for a period of 30 days and will be removed from this view after the quote has expired.
Click on Order History to see a list of all your orders. On this
page you will also be able to get detailed information from each
order, such as the parts and materials ordered.
