How our Process Works

It starts with a CAD design

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

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

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.
