Unless they are doing their work on Sketchup or conFusion360, then it's not a big deal.

Instead it goes downhill when they want the prototype for free because "we'll make it up in volume down the road."


Or they know a lot of other people who will also want one :lol: :lol:

As Randall says its not generally a problem, as a signmaker I get designs to print from designers running Mac's & I use PC's not sure if its the same for 3D files but with 2D then there are cross platform formats that the artwork can be saved in :lol:

It's not the file format that's the problem. It may just be coincidence, but the macbot people seem to be much harder to please. Seems as though they think "hey, it's easy to do this on my Mac, it should be easy for you" attitude. The guy who gives you a sketch on a napkin is always easier to please.
