How do I save money on my project?

Our pricing is based on a number of factors, including material, material thickness, material weight, quantity, shape (geometry), and the overall design. Follow these tips to get the lowest prices on your laser cut parts:

  • Reduce the number of holes or “pierces”
  • Eliminate duplicate lines and unnecessary geometry
  • Keep your design smaller than 46” in any axis
  • Use thinner materials
  • Adjust quantity to avoid minimum order prices

Sometimes a design can benefit from a few small tweaks that will lower the price substantially. Read more about these tips for saving money on your parts and join our mailing list for access to exclusive promotions!
