Getting started with SendCutSend

Welcome to SendCutSend! We’re excited to help you bring your ideas to life using our laser and waterjet cutting services. 

Get instant pricing through our online quote system for fast and accurate pricing in any of our materials.

It begins with a CAD design

Upload your CAD design, get instant pricing, we manufacture it and ship it right to your door within 2-4 days for standard orders. 

We work with 2D vector files (.dxf, .dwg, .ai, or .eps format) and 3D files (.step and .stp format). These files need to be in 1:1 scale. There should only be one part per file, and only the cut lines and bend location lines for the part you wish us to produce.

Don’t have a CAD file? No problem. Try our Design Services where we’ll create your file and send you a cart for purchase. Starting at $49.

Follow our design guidelines

Make sure your file is set up for our lasers by following our Design Guidelines. Get tips on how to prepare your artwork for each of our cutting services that we provide. We also have additional design criteria listed on each of the Materials Pages.

No CAD file? We can help.

If you don’t have a CAD file for laser cutting, no problem! Our fully customizable laser cutting templates allow you to select, customize and order a variety of parts from simple brackets to house numbers in a matter of minutes.

If you need us to build a file for you, check out our Design Services. Starting at $49.

Utilize our additional services

We offer a variety of finishing processes and services to get your parts looking exactly how you imagine. Familiarize yourself with our services and guidelines before uploading your design.



Choose anodizing for lightweight corrosion resistance. Our convenient Class II anodizing service adds durability and character to your laser-cut parts.


We know your projects are multi-dimensional. Get freshly bent metal parts, right off the machine.


For flush surfaces, there’s countersinking. Increase the lifespan of your part and preserve your hardware from long-term wear.


Let SendCutSend and PEM fasteners set your parts up for success with self-clinching nuts, studs, and stand-offs.


Protect your designs with plating. Zinc electroplating helps defend your parts from rust while increasing strength and resistance to wear.

Powder Coating

Custom powder coating gives your laser and waterjet cut parts a bold, long-lasting finish and protective layer which provides corrosion, oxidation, and damage resistance.


Utilizing specialized, automated equipment, we precisely laser-cut a hole, create some threading, and send you on your way with your completed part.


Our tumbling services provide a reduction in surface blemishes and handling scratches that can be found in raw materials.

Understand our limitations

We can cut just about anything, but there are certain material specifications we need to meet for our lasers to cut their best.

While we provide free 3-5 day shipping on all standard orders and $19 shipping to Canada, we have some shipping limitations as well.
