FAQ Category: Edge Quality

Will my deburred parts have sharp edges?

Parts with our free linear deburring service will have sharp edges. The surface will be smooth and “cleaned up” from laser cutting, but there will be no edge softening. Take a look at the video below to learn more about our linear deburring process! If your parts are tumbled they will have partially softened

What are tabs? How can they be removed?

We use tabs to keep your parts from falling out of the parent sheet during laser cutting, waterjet cutting, or CNC routing. Micro Tabs in Laser and Waterjet Cut Materials For laser cut and waterjet cut materials, we cut a bit of additional material about 0.010”-0.015” thick on the outside of your parts to

Do you offer beveling or 3D cutting?

At this time SendCutSend does not offer beveling services or 3D cutting. This includes cutting/grinding a taper into knife blades. We only offer 2D perpendicular cuts and cannot produce any kind of beveled or radiused edge options. Learn about the variety of services we offer on our laser cut services pages. Before uploading your file, be sure to check out our guideline pages to make sure your file is laser ready.
