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.

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 2-day shipping on all standard orders, and $19 shipping to Canada we have some shipping limitations as well.

Will my parts have burr and dross?

SendCutSend’s state of the art laser and waterjet cutting prevent major burr and dross build up on your part, but both imperfections are still unavoidable parts of the manufacturing process. Read through our information pages for your chosen material to see pictures of what dross/burr looks like in different thicknesses, like on our laser

What are your material size limits?

The minimum and maximum part size we offer changes depending on the material and its thickness. We have put together a chart broken down into four categories (Composites, Metals, Plastics, and Wood) so you can see all this information in the same place.  This maximum size limit is determined partially by the machining process

Before you upload your files to SendCutSend, make sure to check for these common problems. Duplicate lines.  Duplicate lines in your file will be rejected by our automated system since the laser cannot recognize or cut them. Be sure to go through the geometry in your file and make sure that there is only

What are best practices for minimum geometry?

Make sure all of the geometry in your laser cut part is at least 50% of the material thickness. As an example, if your material is 0.100” thick, the smallest hole you could expect to cut would be 0.050” in diameter.  Any interior geometry smaller than 50% of the material thickness will not be
