Xometry, an online service provider, offers software to instantly connect you to the best manufacturing solution for your design. The manufacturing options it will recommend include CNC machining, sheet metal, professional 3D printing and casting. Recently, Xometry released an add-in quote capability for Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks. While you are working on your design, you can use this add-in to get an instant quote on what it would cost to prototype, then order the prototype or even low-quantity production run without leaving SolidWorks. Bill Conin and Greg Paulsen of Xometry describe their quote app for the SolidWorks CAD program.
