What are your material maximum and minimum sizes?

Materials behave differently during machining, with capabilities and limitations that vary between materials and their thicknesses. That’s why it’s important to understand the tolerance of specific materials when designing your projects to be laser cut. Before uploading your design to our website check out our general maximum and minimum limitations for all of our materials, and the maximum and minimum material limitations for post processing (bending, tapping, and deburring).
