How to use the Parts Builder?

Use our Online Parts Builder to create and quote parts in minutes. Here’s how!

Before starting the part building process, log into your SendCutSend account. This will allow you to save any parts you create and reorder them anytime in the future.

1. Select a template

Choose from brackets, gears, basic shapes, and more!

Each template will have different options for customization so you may need to try a few out.

If the templates available don’t allow for features or customizations that you need, our Design Services may be a better fit for your project!

2. Adjust units, dimensions, and feature placement

To change units between Imperial and metric, click the units indicator by the overall part dimensions to switch between inches and millimeters.

Hole width and height distances are always measured from the center of each hole.

You can click the exclamation point on each dimension to see an illustration of what the dimension represents.

Reference our Design Guidelines during this step!

Make sure the overall part size, feature sizes, and distances between cut features will meet the required specifications for the material thickness and any post processing services you plan to use.

3. Add bend location lines if needed

Click + Bend Line to add a bend location line to your part. Bend lines mark the center of each bend.

Review our Bending Guidelines during this step. Ensure your bend lines are far enough away from the nearest edge so that your flanges will meet the minimum length required for the material and avoid feature distortion.

4. Save, continue, and instant quote!

When your part is ready, click Save & Continue!

Choose a material and add services to get an instant quote. Check out our detailed guide on quoting parts and placing an order!

Parts you’ve created using the Parts Builder will remain in your SendCutSend account so you can reorder them anytime in the future. Learn how to reorder instant-quoted parts with one click!

Please note that it’s not possible to directly edit or update files in your account on our website. If you need to make a change to an existing Parts Builder part, you’ll need to recreate it in the Parts Builder with your desired revisions.

If there’s any trouble using the Parts Builder our Support team will be happy to help. Keep in mind that if the templates available don’t allow for features or customizations that you need, Design Services may be a better fit for your project!
