In all cases when
data transfer security is not dictated by the customer, sending files
directly to Soligen's web server via FTP (the most popular file transfer
protocol) is recommended.
Our FTP site is
configured so files sent cannot be overwritten or downloaded, thus
regardless if you sent it anonymous or specified a log in and password
procedure with us, no external party can access your files after placed
on our web site.
FTP transfer please follow these steps:
- Verify the
correctness and integrity of your CAD files.
- Fill out an
on line request for quotation (RFQ)
or write a README file (.txt file) which includes the same information.
Minimum information that we need to process an RFQ includes: your
name, contact information (Email and telephone numbers where you
could be reached), your part definition and cast and machined requirements
(at least: alloy, quantity and requested delivery schedule).
- Compress your
data files using an error-correcting program such as PKZIP, GZIP
- Please take the extra
moment to convert any spaces in filenames to dashes or underscores.

for user login and your complete e-mail address for the password
