What is your cut tolerance?

The cut tolerance for each material depends on the cutting process for that material and specific thickness. You can find this information for each stock thickness on the material pages in our Materials Library. Navigate to the material you need and then scroll down to the Material Details. Select your desired thickness and check out its specifications!

material details cut tolerance example

At SendCutSend, our cut tolerances represent the total possible variation from the dimensions of your part as designed. Take a look at this example of possible outcomes for a part cut from a material with a cut tolerance of +/- 0.005”:

We aren’t equipped for precision press-fit tolerances, so we advise making holes slightly undersized to bore out when you receive parts. We have more considerations here: how to design a slip fit for mating parts?
