Prototyping with our laser cut hardboard will help ensure your product’s success before you ever place a full production run. Durable, workable, and affordable, laser cut hardboard will change the way you prototype and save you money simultaneously.
Hardboard is a unique kind of wood board, with the closest comparison being MDF. Our laser-cut hardboard is made using eucalyptus hardwood fiber, which is compressed and heat treated to create dense, high-strength sheeting. Resistant to warping and water, hardboard sheets can be used to create wall paneling, flooring protection, and lightweight furniture, with dozens of other useful applications.
Here at SendCutSend, we laser cut hardboard using our CO2 lasers, allowing us to manufacture your parts quickly, accurately, and inexpensively.
Hardboard parts are limited only by your imagination. One of the best applications for laser cut hardboard is in prototyping. With its warping resistance and comparatively high strength, hardboard can be used to prototype any number of potential parts and products.
With 0.009” tolerance on our CO2 lasers, we’re able to cut your parts with high accuracy, getting your prototypes as close as possible to the “real thing.” We recommend placing a small order with several test parts, and thanks to the affordability of hardboard, you don’t have to worry about needing quantity discounts to come in under budget.
