How our Process Works

Play Video

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.

Our Laser Cutting Service FAQs

Do you offer tumbling?

We soften the edges of laser cut parts and remove burrs on small parts through a vibratory ceramic tumbling process. We use specialized equipment that is harmonically tuned to the specific material we are tumbling which allows us to achieve a more consistent finish across the parts.  Ceramic tumbling is not a finishing process

What does deburring do?

Our free deburring service will remove major imperfections on your laser and waterjet cut parts. While it won’t give your parts a perfect cosmetic finish, it will prepare them for finishing processes and assembly. Learn more in this video. If your project requires a perfectly brushed pattern, aggressive edge softening, or a highly polished

Will my parts have fingerprints on them?

There will be some smudges, carbon scoring, and markings on your parts leftover from handling both at our shop and after you unpack them. We do our best to keep all your parts looking great from machining to shipping, but sometimes a few fingerprints can’t be avoided. Luckily they’re pretty easy to remove, and

What is the size of your laser kerf?

We compensate for all kerf and line offsets in your design. We change the beam position based on the geometry of the part, and we are able to hold +/- .005″ tolerance or better on most materials. We take care of everything so you don’t have to. Check out our blog post on kerf

What are your etching limitations?

We do not offer laser engraving or solid etching at this time. Our etching services are limited to single-line etching, and you can see examples of this in these photos.  Single-line etching (SLE) is ideal for indicating bend lines, hole placements, and simple part markings. SLE should not be used for any cosmetic or

Will my parts be tapered?

Yes, it is possible your parts thicker than 0.250” will have a slight taper from top to bottom. The thicker the material, the more it will be tapered. SendCutSend’s state of the art laser cutting and waterjet cutting technology is able to reduce the amount of taper during the process, but it cannot be
