What if I don’t have a CAD file?

In order to produce your part, we’ll need a CAD file in one of the formats we accept (2D vector files: DWG, DXF, Adobe Illustrator; 3D files: STP or STEP).

If you don’t have a CAD file there are multiple options for getting one so you can have your part manufactured by SendCutSend!

Option 1: SendCutSend Parts Builder

Our Parts Builder features fully customizable laser cutting templates that allow you to select, customize, and order a variety of parts from simple brackets to house numbers in a matter of minutes.

There is no charge to use the Parts Builder and it’s a great place to start if you have a simple design need or minimal CAD experience.

Option 2: Design Services

If you have a napkin sketch or template of your part and need to turn it into a CAD file, our Design Services team can help. We’ll create your file and send you a cart for purchase.

Our Design Services have two options starting at $49.

  • Convert sketch to CAD
  • Convert physical template to CAD

You’ll want to make sure to follow our Design Services Guidelines before reaching out to our team.

Option 3: Design Partners
