Requirements for a laser cutting project:

Interested in beginning a laser cutting project? Before filling out the form for a project, learn about the basics of laser cutting and make sure that your design files and requirements are set.

  • Design File: .ai , .dxf, .svg, .cdr, .eps, .dwg, .3dm
  • Cut Size: Our bed size is 18″x32″ and we cannot accommodate larger materials
  • Material Selection: We cannot cut metals or woods thicker than 1/4″

Other things to consider are your deadline, the quantity of cuts/etches you need, delivery mode (pickup or delivery), and whether you will supply your own material or prefer to work with something we stock and recommend.

If you are unsure about these details, please see our guide to laser cutting.

How to Fill Out an Order Form

Describe as much or as little of the following items you are able to for your project. If there are some items you’re not sure about – no worries! We’ll help you figure out the best specifications possible for your project. But add as much detail as you can so that we’re able to give you an accurate estimate and timeline.

Submitting Files(s)

Ideally we like vector files: .AI .DXF .EPS .CDR or .SVG., .DWG, .3DM We can also take regular image files such as .jpg, .png. etc if you’d like to simply give us an idea of what you’re trying to build.

Project Application

Give us a short description of what you’re making. Is this a piece of art? A prototype? Something with a specific use case such as a gift or tool? This will help us choose the best material for you and accurately estimate the cost of your project.

Materials and Thicknesses

What materials / thicknesses you would like to use for your project? Do you have your own or would you like us to source it for you? If you have an item that you would like to have engraved, let us know what the dimensions are (LxHxW) and what the material is.

Quantity Needed

How many pieces would you like to make? We’re able to offer discounts for larger projects, so the more you order, generally the less the cost will be per item. We can do any number from a single item to the thousands.

Contact Information

Let us know your name, email and phone number so that we can get into contact with you to help make your project a reality.

Delivery or Pick-up
