ReviewText: eMachineShip.com came to our attention via a reference in "Machine Design" magazine. Upon visiting their website, we were instantly captivated by the excellent video tutorials describing how to design custom mechanical components using their free software. Their Machines Reference Page describes dozens of machines used in the manufacturing of custom parts. This is a great site to visit if you want to break out of a pure EE role.
