Hay guys. Just wondering, is there anyone in Arizona who owns a CNC milling machine, or a MakerBot who would be willing to help me out?

Also, it doesn't "have" to be in Arizona, but if your too far away, we would have to do it through IM or emal.

Anyhow, what I'm looking for is someone who can either CNC me a tiny piece of Plexiglass, or if it's a MakerBot, form me a little control panel. I'm trying to make a small panel to hold my USB ports and switches for a project.

If you have either of these, please let me know how much it would cost for you to make me a little switch panel. I need this done, but I don't have the proper tools to do so.

I know this isn't what you asked for, but Mouser, Digikey, and Sparkfun all sell enclosures of all sorts

Can you be ok with just a front panel like this one?

You can design it yourself and order on ponoko.com

InkScape is free so go ahead and learn it. Not too bad for 13-year olds. It's the right time to learn to use geometry, trig and algebra for you smiley-wink
They always say math is useful and they are exactly right smiley

BTW, I'm using an old version of CorelDraw. It is a pain and reminds me of 2001. Will switch to InkScape for next design.
