Online Sheet Metal Bending Services

If you’re looking to make your 2D sheet metal project into a 3D part, CNC bending is where to start. 

Bending is specific to each metal and thickness, and requires a high level of precision. Achieving a final product that fits within tight tolerances is a difficult process made easy by SendCutSend. We will bend your laser-cut parts to your specifications within one degree of accuracy or better.  

Starting from $9, no minimum quantity. As low as $1 per part in bulk!

Flat Sizes up to 30” x 30”

As long as your part has a maximum flat size of 30”x30” and is no thicker than .250,” depending on flange length, we can bend it.

Super easy, extremely fast

I had a great experience working with SendCutSend. It was super easy to use the website with great documentation and resources for reference. Turnaround time was also extremely fast, I ordered and received my parts within a week! I also love the vacuum formed packaging – great way to securely ship a wide variety of parts in different shapes and sizes. Will definitely be a returning customer for both professional and personal projects.”

Do you have tips for designing bend reliefs?

We sure do! Bend relief is one of those small details in a bent part that’s easily overlooked. In parts where it’s required, leaving it out can at best cause unwanted tearing, or at worst make your part nearly impossible to physically make (at least the way it’s drawn). Reference our comprehensive guide to
