If a part can be made using Xometry or some other online ordering tool, then it is almost certain that I will not win the job. My prices are usually about 1.5x to 3x xometry's domestic rates. When my customers come to me with a job that can be done elsewhere, I usually tell them upfront that they will find lower prices online. I still quote the parts, but don't spend any time on the quote.
Prototyping in direct competition with xometry or china is not a viable business in my opinion. I try to stay far away from that type of work.
I don't think I said I compete against Xmtry, I just use it as a guide. because I know the engineers are using it. Young Engineers seem to be re writing the rules of procurement, whether we like it or not
