Can you send the scraps or dropouts from my parts?

We’re unable to send you the scraps or dropout pieces, also known as negative geometry, from parts you order. This is because all material is used during our production process in order to offer the best possible pricing and reduce waste.

Additionally, we do not allow common-line nesting. Common-line nesting is the process of nesting parts inside each other and causing them to “share” a cut path in an attempt to ensure a precision fit or save material. We do not accept or process common-line nested parts because it can lead to imprecise parts since it doesn’t account for laser cutter beam widthtooling sizewaterjet stream width, or kerf.

We're unable to send you scraps or dropouts from your parts since we do not allow common-line nesting.

If you need parts to have a slip fit, we have advice for designing a slip fit for mating parts here.

For more on nesting, take a look at our Nesting Guidelines!
