Looking for some guidance here, wasn't sure where to post this, so I figured I'd start here.

I'm looking for some enclosure guidance. I don't need the enclosure to be custome, but I would like for the cutouts to be milled or laser cut. Anyone have any suggestions on places they have used that are reasonably priced?

Thank you.

Are your cutouts not circular? A step drill is a lot cheaper than those other choices.

Where I live, the cheapest custom cutting option was a 6 axis water jet cutter.

Or a Greenlee punch set, they offer some different shapes other than circular hole.
There is also a local plasma shop that may help.
I also use reverse engraved lamacoid for an enclosure legends etc.

Mostly I'm very particular and I can never do a good enough job on my end given I live in a NYC apartment and don't have a proper workshop. I'm wondering if 3D printing isn't the way to go for now. Just weighing the options and seeking recommendations. Thank you.
