Prototype Delivery Options

Rapid Sheet Metal offers various delivery options to get your prototype parts on your desk when you need them. How do we count Day 1? Day 1 starts when we receive a PO, Credit card, Cash, or Check if this is before 12:00 AM EST then that day counts. In all other scenarios the next day is counted as Day 1.

Expedited 48 Hour Ship

At times Rapid Sheet Metal is able to ship parts in 48 hours after receipt of order and acceptable 3D files. In order to do so, we require a 3D model at the RFQ stage that can be turned into a flat without engineering. This applies for unfinished parts only; plating and painting add time. Hardware can be inserted if it is in stock or can be obtained within 24 hours.

Orders must be received by 12:00 AM EST. For example, an order received at 11:00 AM on a Monday would ship no later than Wednesday for Thursday delivery via FedEx Overnight or UPS Red.

Expedited 3 Business Day Ship

A 3D model is required at the RFQ stage that can be turned into a flat without engineering.

Orders must be received by 12:00 AM EST. For example, an order received at 11:00 AM on a Monday would ship no later than Thursday for Friday delivery via FedEx Overnight or UPS Red.

Expedited 4 or 5 Business Day Ship

A 3D model is preferred at the RFQ stage that can be turned into a flat without engineering.
