DWG, DXF, Ai files or information we can produce CAD drawings from. Drawings should be 1:1 scale in mm Example files are available below. If you use Micro Station or Vector Works please let us know.
IGES or STL files, please ensure 3D files are under 500mb.
We can “nest” your parts on sheets using our software, giving the most efficient use of the material.
If you would prefer to nest your project, please leave a 7mm gap between
parts and a 3mm around the edge of the 2440 x 1220 sheet.
Round router cutters leave small radius's on internal corners, these can get in the way if a square part is to be inserted. Radius's can be removed by hand or fillets can be added, see image below. If you require fillets let us know and we can add them quickly with our software.
